Las Vegas HolidaysBright lights, big city World-renowned for its casinos and gambling, Las Vegas is the perfect place if you fancy a flutter. With more than 76 casinos set deep inside the labyrinth of magnifi cent hotels which stretch up and down the famous Strip, visitors are spoilt for choice.

The Venetian Resort has its very own indoor waterway complete with gondolas and a replica of Venice’s famous Rialto Bridge. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the Strip then head pool side to cool down and sip a cocktail, or try one of the many golf courses on offer.
At every turn, there’s something magical, surreal or just downright jawdropping, whether it’s the pyramids of Egypt, the Eiffel Tower, erupting volcanoes or nostalgic Americana (only the latter is real!). Walk the famous Strip revelling in the sights and enjoying the year-round sunshine. Or take a tour out into the surrounding landscapes to see the Grand Canyon, one of the natural wonders of the world, returning to relax by the hotel pool. At night, the city is illuminated by the largest light show on earth as millions of neon bulbs announce the show that is Vegas’ nightlife. The air crackles with a unique excitement and exhilaration. This is the time to enjoy some of the best nightly entertainment in the world, with incredible shows, superb food and drink, and high-rolling casinos
