If you are travelling around Italy, and fancy soaking up some excitement and culture all at the same time, then a tour of the famous casinos is definitely the way to go.

Italy's gambling history can be traced back as far as the Holy Roman Empire. In 1638, the first gambling establishment opened in Venice and some people speculate that Baccarat and Bingo were actually invented in Italy as some point in the 15th century. The word 'Casino' is in fact an Italian word. The largest casino in Italy is in Saint Vincent which is in the North and goes by the name of Casino' de la Vallee. It contains 100 gaming tables and 500 slot machines.

The best example of a casino with a real history is the Casino' di Venezia, this is because the casino building was built over 500 years ago in 1509 which makes it one of the oldest in the world. It has a wide choice of slots games which is important in order to stave off competition from online casinos. The casino based in Venice Italy has been incredibly popular ever since opened, at one point wanted to expand. However due to the fact that you cannot build outwards into the canals they instead had to buy two other buildings as they came up in Venice to make two more casinos. Even today this casino is still as popular as ever as they offer all same games that you would expect to find in any great casino.

One casino that is neither old non-new can be found in Italy known as the Casino' Municipale Campione d'Italia. Not far outside of Milan this casino offers everything you could ever want from a modern casino while having a stunning look on the outside that you should definitely see if you ever visit Italy. Another must see casino can be found in Italy under the name of the Casino' Municipale Campione d'Italia. This casino offers an incredible number of games and is a must see if you are visiting Italy around the area of Milan.
