Palazzo

Bear-y spectacular floral displays

How can you not love polar bears? They’re cute, cuddly and so good with their cubs. But with us, they might be a little too aggressive. Luckily the bears at the Palazzo and Bellagio don’t bite.

Fall fairy tale at the Palazzo

During  your next shopping trip in Vegas, stop by and see the gorgeous garden at The Shoppes at The Palazzo.
