Italy is the land of romance, with historical monuments that make it to the Seven Wonders of the World such as the Tower of Pisa to the Vatican City, which offers a spectacle in itself with its famous paintings and sculptures. Italy has so much to offer that it will make you wish to come back again and again.
However, romance and history is not always the only attraction of Italy, there is yet another side that attracts tourists and fellow citizens alike and that is Italian casinos. Most large Italian cities will have a casino especially if it is a tourist attraction and frankly what part of Italy is not a tourist attraction?
Italy boasts to have kept its casinos open even during the war and many crowded the place during that time as well to escape reality and in search of lady luck.
Out of all the casinos (and there are a few) the Venice’s Casino is the most famous and highest earner of them all. Its success has made it possible to open yet another Venice Casino but this time in Malta, which will ensure them the top position in the future as well.
Italian casinos are very diverse and once such example is the casino situated in the town of Campione at the Italian Swiss border.
To get to the ‘The Campione d’Italia Casino’ you have to cross the border on the Milan-Como motorway; the experience is well worth it as the casino has its own house rules, which are displayed at the entrance and which you should read very carefully.
The good part is if lady luck does smile at you while gambling there all you have to do is open a Swiss bank account.
Most Italian casinos will open at approximately 2 pm and close anywhere between 4 am to 6 am. The legal age to gamble and drink alcoholic beverages is 18 and you will be required to have identification on you that has a recent picture; the best thing to carry is your driving license not passport. Most Italian casinos speak English fluently because of the large number of tourists visiting this beautiful country every year.
