What does Bellagio mean in English?

The Bellagio has a huge lake in front with fountains. They are beautiful and a popular tourist destination.

If you are on the East side of the street, you have to use the walkway to cross over. If you do, and if you look up, you might see these:

Below is the lake. The Bellagio is on the right and mostly out of sight. The lake covers nine acres.

The fountains are choreographed and set to music and (at night) a light show. The fountains can be viewed every 30 minutes during the day, and every 15 minutes from 8 p.m. until midnight. There are 1200 nozzles that operate to stage the show.

You might have noticed the buildings in the distance have a reflection of the Bellagio in them. Let's take a closer look:

What does Bellagio mean in English? It's the name of a resort town on Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy. It doesn't mean anything in English -- it was a trick question, haha, I'm so mean. You can read more if you click here.

  1. I have been in the real Bellagio. No big deal. Your photos in Vegas are better.

  2. I love the Bellagio. It's so beautiful. Great pics.

  3. Don't know how I missed it, but I just saw your comment with the link about my phone. Thank you. That was a very informative review and I learned some features that I didn't even know about LOL. I actually ordered it via the website without seeing it in person first. Probably not the way to go. It may need a system update, I'm going to ask about it at the store and see what they think. Thanks again.

  4. Great shots. Always love to stroll through the Bellagio.

  5. Camera works well, Mojo.

    Looked to be a long day according to the shots.

  6. Great shots!

    Nice meeting you in Las Vegas, btw.

  7. Great photos!! I just visited Lake Como the other day! The one here in the San Juan Mountains, of course. :-)

  8. I was in Bellagio last summer and I asked two gift shop staff what Bellagio is in English. And they said it means buttefly. I don't understand why the staff don't know this kind of information.
