In Venetian Macau-Resort-Hotel there are two main areas—the tourist area and the casino area.

Tourist Area in Venetian Macau

In the tourist area, there are the Venetian styled buildings, canals and plaza. The most amazing thing is that all of these are on the third floor. The Grand Canal Shoppes is also on the third floor and is the largest indoor shopping mall in Macau with an area of 9 hectares (22 acres) and with more than 350 stores. They are all internationally renowned names with clothes,  jewelry, accessories and other goods. The famous brands and the duty-free advantage combine to give all the best shopping experience.

If you don't want to go shopping, touring around the Grand Canal Shoppes area would be the best choice. As in Venice, you are able to relax on a gondola as the pier is near the plaza with the trip taking 15 minutes accompanied by songs from the gondoliers. The San Luca, Marco Polo and Grand Canals are all named after the famous Venetian canals. Beside the canals there is the San Marco Square, which was also named after the Italian plaza.

Apart from shops and gondolas, visitors can enjoy the entertainment when walking around Venetian Macau-Resort-Hotel with a piano solo and mummeries on the San Marco Square every hour and the Streetmosphere™ performers (street performers) keeping you entertained along the way. And what's more, the man-made blue sky can produce sunrise and sunset effects under the control of a computer. Having experienced the shops, the activities and performances, you can go downstairs to the first level. Here you can go to the ZAİA Theatre to enjoy the ZAİA Show as presented by the Cirque Du Soleil as a permanent show.

Casino Area in Venetian Macau

The Venetian Macau-Resort-Hotel resort is also famous for its casino. It has one of the largest casinos in the world at 5 hectares (13 acres). Located on the first level of the building, the casino is divided into four areas - the Golden Fish, Imperial House, Red Dragon and Phoenix. There are altogether 850 gaming tables and more than 4,100 slot machines with baccarat, blackjack, roulette and other gambling games.

You are suggested to take a free bus to Venetian first.
And then walk west along Estrada da Baía de Nossa Senhora da Esperança for 10 minutes to Galaxy Hotel, from where you can take a free bus to Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro, which is about 300 meters north to Senado Square.
