Palazzo and Venetian: The streets of Venice are alive and in bloom at The Venetian and The Palazzo with a first-of-its-kind floral installation at the resorts.

Hundreds of hours went into design and art direction. The spectacular display was first constructed on a computer model which took three months to build.

•In July, hot summer nights transform the gardens with jewel tones in hot pinks, purples, and reds.
•And in August, to finish up the three-month show, the gardens and topiaries will begin to show the transition into autumn with orange, yellows, reds, and browns.
The gardens are adorned with a variety of plans including hydrangeas, chrysanthemums, kalanchoes, fleurette mums, ivy, ferns, and various topiaries with different geometric forms to enhance the Venezia feel. Viewing is FREE.
