While there are many reasons to not like Caesars Palace, the architecture isn’t one of them. The move from the Sarno block exterior to an aesthetic that more appropriately reflects the time and place its representing was masterfully applied. Even though we know these are all recreations it still projects a sense of authentic grandeur. I mean, whose eyes aren’t drawn to statues of topless females and concrete penises. Thanks to @las_when for sharing a great representation of what we are talking about.
