THE WATERFALL, ATRIUM & GARDENS OF THE PALAZZO TRANSFORM INTO A MAJESTIC WINTER UTOPIA
As part of The Venetian and The Palazzo’s inaugural Winter in Venice celebration, the resorts’ horticulture team put the finishing touches on its unique winter displays in the resort’s Waterfall, Atrium & Gardens this morning.
Traditional red beaded ornaments, pinecones and fresh poinsettias line the gardens of the three-floor-high atrium as 16-foot, hand-crafted white and pearl peacock statues sit atop The Palazzo’s ground fountains. The whimsical winter display is surrounded by hand-designed snowflakes suspended midair, ice branches and 20-foot frosted birch, pine and glittering trees.
Guests are invited to enjoy one of the resorts’ festive Winter in Venice cocktails while enjoying the distinctive scenery including the popular Gondolier Blanco served at The Venetian and The Palazzo’s bars and lounges.

- 1 oz. white crème de menthe
- 1 oz. white crème de cocoa

Shake and strain into candy cane rimmed martini glass that has been swirled with chocolate syrup.
Guests can enjoy the holiday display and festive cocktails through the New Year.
