I did a little walking around the strip before I crossed the street and wandered around the Bellagio. It is a very pretty property. As magnificent as the inside was, the outside was an even prettier sight.
The Bellagio is a sprawling property that commands attention on the strip. Not just because it is a huge building, but it has the famous Fountains of Bellagio. In the afternoon the fountains start dancing with some great music synchronized to the water. The best show I personally saw was the fountains dancing to a medley of Frank Sinatra singing standards. At night there are beautiful colored lights that join the water to create ‘ohs and ahs’.
This morning, the fountain was silent but the fantasy of standing in the
Mediterranean remained intact. It was a beautiful, blue sky day and the only thing missing were some chairs on the promenade so I can sit under the shade and enjoy the world walking by.
