Las Vegas, Nevada: Rub Cleopatra's Chest for Luck (In Transition)

Opened in 1970, Cleopatra's Barge was a replica of the Egyptian queen's Nile River pleasure craft, outfitted as a floating lounge indoors at Caesars Palace casino. The figurehead of the boat -- a gold-gilt Cleopatra, nude from the waste up -- still leans out over the carpeted lobby. Visitors reach up and burnish the queen's golden orbs for luck.

Caesars Palace

From the main entrance off of Las Vegas Blvd, the the Cleopatra's Barge lounge is just to the right, on the way to the elevators for the Centurion Tower. You don't have to go into the lounge; Cleopatra hangs out over the public lobby.

Rub Cleopatra's Chest for Luck

Hard to find, like everything else when you're in a casino. Also, kind of high off the ground. Not easy to rub for luck for normal-sized people.
