You dream of being serenaded in a gondola on your way to a romantic hotel in Italy, but the closest you've been is the Venetian in Vegas because you just can't pull together the funds.

The good folks at the Hotel Cipriani know that while the Vegas Strip is great, it pales in comparison to the real thing. That's why, in celebration of their 50th anniversary, they've reduced their prices to the room rates they offered in 1958.

On May 26, they're offering double-rooms for US$6, the equivalent of what a room cost the day the hotel opened its doors on the lagoon island of Guidecca in Venice 50 years ago.

That you means you can splurge on a candlelit Italian dinner of beef carpaccio and Spaghetti alle Vongole instead.

Now that's la dolce vita!
