An Introduction to Bellagio Hotel and Casino
Bellagio is a luxury hotel and casino resort which, at the time of its opening, was the most expensive hotel and casino to ever be built. It was built on the site of the Dunes Hotel and Casino which was previously demolished. The theme of the hotel and casino is inspired by the small Lake Como town in Italy of the same name.

Two restaurants have also received this reward and Michelin stars have also been awarded. Bellagio is a member of the leading hotels of the world and is listed on Conde Nast’s top hotels in the world.
