Gondola Rides- Bringing Venice closer, their signature and landmark gondola rides have been very well imitated where visitors can take in the surrounding loveliness and relax as they sit back on these narrow boats while the humorous gondoliers who patrol them sing traditional love songs and warble out tunes from the old country. The ride is approximately 15 minutes long and worth every penny and minute.

Structure and Design

The Venetian Macao was actually built on thousands of pilings driven into a landfill. It is modeled on its sister hotel- The Venetian Las Vegas. Since the city of Venice has been used as the major inspiration, its signature and landmark designs can be mirthfully seen in the architecture of this hotel. The plaza, canals and squares are some of the features which have been beautifully replicated from the blueprints of the Italian city. There are gorgeous pseudo-bridges over the streams of canals, high quality marble based flooring and interior that explicitly represents high splendour. Not to forget, the glorious man-made sky ceiling inside has been well executed to give the impression of a real sky.
