Bellagio

 What is this? Horses!
A talking tree
 Apples made of red roses

The conservatory of Bellagio was theatrically decorated
in autumn theme 
 The greenhouse is massive
- the displays change from season to season
- Chef Michael Mina's restaurant on the background 
 Bellagio resort opened in 1998

 Bellagio has a gallery of Fine Arts
 Chocolate fountains
 It looks like this behind the reception
 Famous ceiling of the hotel's lobby
- a dazzling display of a colourful and vibrant
glass flowers sculpture
 Detail of Fiori di Como by glass artist Dale Chihuly
 Going out of Bellagio

 Well, not yet out,
there's also an upscale glass enclosed
shopping promenade called Via Bellagio
with nice shops like
Hermes, Prada, Chanel, Dior, Tiffany&Co....
 Front facade
- ocher- and terracotta-coloured
Mediterranean-style building
 Famous dancing fountains
- more than 1000 streams of water shoot up to 76m
in the air with music
 The sound when the water drops back to the lake
is like a thundering noise
- could see (and hear) this also thru the window from the room of Vdara
 Beautiful!
 As already in Italy, let's continue it here to Rome
- Caesars Place on the background
Don't really have to walk there....
