Pauly D -- Las Vegas Pit Stop

Pauly D is done with Italy, and he has a little time before he's back in Seaside Heights, NJ -- so he decided to hit up his home away from home ... the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas.

As TMZ first reported, Pauly was one of only three cast members not sequestered at the "Jersey Shore" house in Seaside Heights, NJ -- he was allowed to skip out so he could work this gig.
