Curb-side at the fountains


The most obvious (and probably) the best place to view the Bellagio Fountains is curb side at the fountains themselves. This is a totally free place to watch the Bellagio Fountains from, and it’s as easy as walking up to the Fountains and finding a good spot.

For the best views in the evening, you’ll want to get there quite early, before the showing. Don’t turn up here with 5 minutes to go, expecting to get a spot right at the front (it’s near impossible!).

For this to truly be the best place to view the Bellagio Fountains, you need to make sure you get there 15-20 minutes before the fountains start!

We’d also recommend enjoying the fountains from this spot at a couple of different times during the day – go in the daytime (when it’s quiet) and go in the evening for the full effect (but be aware it’ll get busier once the sun goes down).

This way, you get to explore the best place to view the Bellagio Fountains in a few different settings, and truly make the most of it!

This is definitely the best place to view the Bellagio Fountains from (it’s free!) and it’s the most classic spot.
