Winter in Venice at The Venetian Las Vegas

Last week, I was invited to an exclusive dinner hosted by The Venetian at the legendary Cut Steak House in Beverly Hills, to learn more about “Winter in Venice.”

The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas are home to Winter in Venice™, the third-annual celebration of the winter holiday season on the Las Vegas Strip, called “A Gift of The Venetian.”  With 49 days of seasonal experiences throughout both resorts, Winter in Venice is the ultimate destination for a holiday getaway, running Nov. 18, 2013 through Jan. 5, 2014.

I have long been a fan of The Venetian in Las Vegas. I have stayed there a couple of times, when they first opened and a few years ago on a business trip. I have stayed in many amazing hotels on the Las Vegas strip, but my stay at The Venetian left lasting impressions…I remember just how spacious the suite is and the view from the room down to the strip was simply spectacular.

During “Winter in Venice” celebrations, a schedule of Italian-inspired experiences will include a new nightly entertainment spectacle, whimsical character performances, a stunning 3D light projection show, and an elaborate Winter In Venice fantasy scene in The Palazzo Waterfall Gardens. For foodies who just love food, especially Italian cuisine, which I am sure many of my readers are, several weekend events will feature world-class experiences for foodies, including the new La Cucina ItalianaFood & Wine Festival, Dec. 5-8, featuring celebrity chefs such as Chef Mario Batali, Chef Wolfgang Puck, and more!

For those with kids or couples, the romantic skating rink above The Venetian’s iconic outdoor Grand Canal, will return. The rink was featured in Travel + Leisure magazine, and was called one of the “world’s coolest skating rinks” by the prestigious publication.  To best experience Winter in Venice, make plans to stay overnight at The Venetian or The Palazzo, begin at only $149 per night. Overnight guests also receive Passaporto di Winter in Venice, a festive bundle of value for the Winter in Venice experience, including free items and experiences worth more than $125 per stay. Additional retail, dining and entertainment offers are valued at more than $1,000!

For those who book an upgraded suite, a Premiere Passaporto di Winter in Venice is a special holiday “upgrade” to a deluxe Winter in Venice experience, including free items and experiences worth more than $300 per stay. Additional retail, dining and entertainment offers are valued at more than $1,500!
