We dare you to keep a straight face inside this Francophonic parody, almost smack-bang mid-Strip. They’ve got a half-size replica of the Eiffel Tower, too. Pay to zoom up the tower via glass elevators to a windy observation deck, where you can look down on the Bellagio‘s dancing fountain show across the street. To save money on tower admission, buy tickets before 7 p.m. and show your Total Rewards players club card.
Once that’s done, there’s not a whole lot to keep you here, except perhaps a poolside massage by Mandara spa. Skip the stable of Les Misérables-worthy dining rooms, which are sadly below the bar of what you’d find in the Gallic capital. A stand-out exception is Gordon Ramsay Steak. Breakfast or brunch at Le Village Buffet is one of the Strip’s better all-you-can-eat feasts, while the outdoor patio at Mon Ami Gabi is always popular. Stop by the colorful Hexx confectionary for chocolates and more.
Need free Wi-Fi? Try Café Belle Madeleine, a patisserie and gelato shop that also sells Eiffel Tower lollipops, truffles, Madeleine children’s books, and other themed novelties.
Paris is connected to Bally’s and its monorail station by an interior walkway. It’s also a northbound SDX express bus stop.
