Visit Las Vegas and See the World

You can see the world and never leave Las Vegas. Well, sort of!
1. Visit one of the world’s most romantic cities, Venice at the Venetian. You can stroll along San Marco Square, ascend the Campanile Tower, walk across the Rialto Bridge and take a Gondola Ride. It is also home to the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum with a rotating series of exhibitions drawn from the collections of the Guggenheim and featuring original art by Rubens, Picasso, van Gogh, Monet, and others.
2. Feel the lure of the Caribbean. Visit Treasure Island where the free show, Sirens of TI, pit a group of beautiful, tempting women against a band of renegade pirates. With their mesmerizing and powerful song the Sirens lure the pirates to their cove, stir up a tempest strong enough to sink a ship, and transform Sirens’ Cove into a 21st century party.
3. Spend an evening in Munich’s Hofbrauhaus. The fun starts the minute you enter and hear the Oom Pa Band and continues until you raise your stein for the last time. Dine on authentic German specialties served by Drindl-clad waitresses – all capable of carrying eight-liter steins of Hofbräu Beer.
4. Head to Merry Olde England for a night with the Knights at Excalibur’s “Tournament of Kings.” In the era of castles and gallant knights, kings would gather the nobility for fanciful feasts and tournaments of valor in celebration of important events, and you are invited to join in the feasting. Cheer on your favorite jousting team.
5. Experience the excitement of Brazil's Carnival at the Rio. See the Masquerade Show in the Sky with dancers in exotic masks and brilliant costumes. Join in the fun, don a carnival costume, and ride on a Mardi Gras float. The show is free but it is $9.95 per person to ride on a float.
6. Take a bite of the Big Apple at New York, New York. Gaze at the Statue of Liberty and the New York Skyline and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Dine in the Village, take in a show, and enjoy the dueling pianos at the Irish Pub. NYC like Vegas is the city that never sleeps.
7. Experience the passion, excitement, and sophistication of the City of Light at Paris, Las Vegas. Wander the cobblestone pathways lined with French wrought iron street lamps and an exact reproduction of the Eiffel Tower. Dine at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant 100 feet about the strip.
8. The adventure continues. At Mandalay Bay and Shark Reef you will be face to face with some of the most dangerous and exotic animals in the world. Check out into Mandalay Bay's lush, 11-acre tropical sand beach. Manadalay in Myanmar is on a river not the sea but you can still say you were on the Road to Mandalay.
9. Then it is off to explore Egypt. At the Luxor you can pretend you are Howard Carter when he caught the first glint of gold in King Tut’s Tomb. Artisan’s reproduced King Tut’s treasures using gold leaf and linens, precious pigments, tools and original 3,300-year-old methods. Each “artifact” is meticulously positioned according to the records maintained by the Carter expedition.
10. OK! So you really came to gamble. Head to the Mediterranean and Monte Carlo with over 2,100 slot and video poker machines and ninety-five table games. Who knows maybe you will see James Bond playing baccarat.
