Judging from recent surveys, tourists are changing their habit concerning travel destinations.
It seems that more and more people, when going through their holiday options, are inclined to choose places where they can find facilities accommodating various types of gambling activities, namely casinos.
The idea of spending entire nights playing roulette or winning an exciting Texas hold’em tournament seems to tickle the dreams of Italian tourists.
When talking about gambling, there’s no wonder one of the favorite destinations for travelers is Las Vegas: the city deserves to become an icon in the gaming industry.
However, in Las Vegas, apart from gambling, there’s nothing much to do.
So, if poker, roulette, black jack and slot machines are not going to be the sole ingredients of your holiday, the best option is to choose a destination offering alternative attractions so to make your stay complete and diversified.
On this regard, Venice could be the ideal choice.
It is one of the most famous, romantic, unique and suggestive cities in the world… Let’s be honest, adjectives to describe Venice are endless and the list could go on and on.
Everybody dreams to visit Venice once in a lifetime.
The city has a casino as well and it is the oldest in the world: it was founded in 1638.
In the 30’s it was moved to the Lido, the long sandbank where the Venice Film festival is held every September, and in 2000 was closed permanently.
Nowadays, Venice Casino has two locations: Ca’ Vendramin Calergi, a historical palace on the Grand Canal, and Cà Noghera, near Marco Polo airport.
Cà Vendramin Calergi
Cà Vendramin Calergi is the vibrating hearth of Venice Casino.
In this sophisticated building, noble example of the Venetian Renaissance, you can play classic casino games such as French roulette, Black Jack and Caribbean Poker.
Also, the palace is the perfect location for gala dinners, concerts, shows and other elegant events.
Cà Noghera dates back to 1999 and represents the first American style casino that was opened in Italy: 5500 m² of pure entertainment with over 600 slot machines.
There is also a theatre arena for concerts, shows and the like.
Venice provides tourists with the superlative chance to combine the most classic holiday with the electrifying buzz of a gambling evening.
If you are planning to go to Venice and would like to experience the gambling life of the lagoon city, you can choose between these two fantastic options:
- the magnificent location of Cà Vendramin, right in the hearth of Venice
- the modern American-style location of Cà Noghera, on the mainland
And if you have always dreamt to stay in one of the astonishing historic buildings of the city, you can opt for the Hotel Duodo Palace, an elegant palace not far from Piazza San Marco, with a splendid canal entrance, that is similar to the palace of Cà Vendramin.
