Top-Rated Casinos in Italy

more than a year ago
No matter how you choose to look at it, Italy has more to offer than just red wine, pasta, and delicious gelato. Italians love to gamble, so the country has become famous for its wonderfully designed casinos. Below you will find some of the best Italian casinos for tourists to visit while you also try a few of the world's tastiest wines:

Venice Casino

Did you know that the world's first casino came to life in Venice, Italy? That was a long time ago, in 1638, and the casino brought a lot of international attention to Venice. But then, you may wonder why exactly the Venice Casino is special or famous. Well, unlike casinos in other places, this casino is spread out all over Venice, but that's because the casino couldn't just expand its space by building an extension. 

It also wasn't possible for the casino operators to buy the closest building, break it down and build an extension. The only option was to wait for a vacant build regardless of where it is in town, which the Venice casino did. Right now any AAMS and non AAMS operators featured at can start their gambling business in Venice.

Casino Lido
In the twentieth century, the Venice casino opened a branch in Lido just by the beach. Though old, it still offers visitors a unique atmosphere that is reminiscent of the early thirties, especially with the hotel's lovely beachfront architecture. This beach casino is the perfect place for guests as it is surrounded by some well-designed hotels, such as Des Bains and Hotel Excelsior. Up until the year 2000, this Venice casino was the perfect summer home of many Venice Gamblers.

Ca 'Vendramin Calergi
With the need for more space,  the Canal Grande Casino branch was opened for business in the '50s. Ca 'Vendramin Calergi, called 'The Doge' by locals, has been accommodated in the exclusive and elegant Doge's Palace, the former residence of both Richard Wagner and the Doge Of Venice.

Ca 'Noghera
The latest of the Venice casinos opened up to punters in the late '90s. Ca 'Noghera became the first Italian casino offering customers some American games. This casino has been created to be a very informal one in a modern atmosphere compared to other casinos in the city.

So if you want to visit Venice to enjoy some good gambling time, these three locations will give you a thrilling experience. Venetian casinos are a breath of fresh air and like nothing you've seen anywhere, not even in Vegas. Get ready to experience a fine mix of tradition and Avant-grade.

San Remo Casino

You've probably heard of the San Remo resort since it is one of Italy's most famous tourist resorts. The San Remo resort is well-known for its many cultural events, like the San Remo music festival. If you are big on sports, the city has made a name as the Milan vs San Remo classic cycling race's endpoint. San Remo is most famous among gamblers as the birthplace of the stud poker game Telesina. 

If you love mountains and casinos, then here is the best place to enjoy the combo as mountains shelter the Casino Municipale di Sanremo. In all its beauty, the Riviera attracts thousands of visitors monthly, and gambling enthusiasts can check-in at the Casino Municipale di Sanremo, which is the oldest casino in the whole of Italy.

Campione Casino

A fun fact about the town of Campione is that it's an Italian enclave located in the Ticino region of Switzerland. Apart from the tourist business, the gambling and casino business is the primary source of income for the Italian city of Campione. Unlike other casinos, the one here is owned and also run by the Italian government. Because of the number of local customers and guests, the casino's revenue is sufficient to bankroll the running of Campione without the imposition of government taxes.

Casino de la Vallée

Nothing is finer than a neat mix of tradition and the present, and that's what Casino de la Vallée offers. Find a wide variety of famous casino games, including Chemin de fer (a variation of Baccarat), Black Jack, Craps, Fairoulette Saint-Vincent (a variation of Roulette), Poker, Telesina Poker, Punto Banco (Baccarat), American and French Roulette,  and Trente et Quarante (Red and Black).

If you want to enjoy some Vino and gamble without leaving one location for another, then you can visit the ground floor to find the gambling rooms and go one floor up to access the bar. The bar is fancy and offers table service, but you can get something fancier at the elegant Restaurant Brasserie du Casino. If you're with your spouse and looking to have late dinner but romantic dinner, you might take the time to catch some entertaining live musicals in the brasserie. Talk about the perfect holiday in Italy.
