WHAT hap­pens in Ve­gas, stays in Ve­gas. And most peo­ple who stay in Ve­gas want to stay at Cae­sar’s Palace.

Even if you’ve never been any­where near Las Ve­gas and its fa­mous strip, we bet you’ve heard of this iconic ho­tel.

And you’ve def­i­nitely seen it on screen, in films and TV shows such as Rain Man, The Hang­over, Friends, and Ocean’s Eleven.

Cae­sar’s Palace has been the heart and soul of Las Ve­gas since it first opened in 1966, help­ing the area be­came the en­ter­tain­ment cap­i­tal it is to­day, and has played host to more celebri­ties than any­where else.

It takes an army to run this place. Now more than dou­ble the size it was when opened, it sprawls over 85 acres, has more than

4,000 rooms, a vast con­cert hall, nine bars, 15 res­tau­rants, a shop­ping mall, and the fa­mous huge casino floor.

It was built by Jay Sarno in the 60s, who wanted to cre­ate a Dis­ney­land for adults.

His son is one of the con­trib­u­tors to this amaz­ing doc­u­men­tary and shares funny and fas­ci­nat­ing mem­o­ries of that time.

The first themed fan­tasy re­sort, Cae­sar’s Palace does Ro­man-era lux­ury and op­u­lence on an epic scale.

In the pri­vate vil­las you can ex­pect a lounge, games room, ter­race and bar, a grand pi­ano and a bath­room with gold fix­tures, plus use of a chauf­feur­driven car and a pri­vate jet. All for a mere $35k a night.
