    Does the Bellagio Tram to Monte Carlo save much time versus walking? Its been a few years since I have been to Vegas and I don't remember how long it took to walk between the two places. My wife has a bad back and Im trying to save a little walking here and there for her. We have the $50.00 dining credit from Myvegas to Monte Carlo and we are staying at the Mirage which would be our starting point. I would personally just walk it but if I can cut a little time off for her I will do it.

    Thanks
    Chuck

    It does save time, but how much depends on where you are coming from and going to in each property.

    The tram goes from behind the spa tower to the back of MC near the south entrance to Aria. If you are going to The Pub at MC, the tram is a great time saver. If you are going to Diablos, you would have to walk through the entire property to get to it.

    The walk now requires cutting through Cosmo and Crystals unless you want to climb stairs to the pedestrian bridges. In March, the walkway was tight going under construction at the Harmon demolition site.

    Take the tram. It will save walking for her, plus the whole way is air conditioned except for the little bit where you go outside and up the escalators to the tram. It will be hot when you are there. Enjoy your time. You can even do some window shopping on your way to the tram, i.e. the world's largest chocolate fountain in the Bellagio.

    P.S. We will be in Vegas at the same time you are. Please leave some $$$ for us at the casinos. :evillaugh

    There is still a lot of walking, especially if you are just passing through and neither of these hotels is your destination.

    BUT ... it is air conditioned walking. So Mid May to Mid September it could be worth doing even if the amount of walking is identical.

    To save her walking you might consider:

    1) Take the bus.
    It boards out front of Mirage, towards Ti. The cost is $3 per person and heading south on Las Vegas Blvd is nothing at all like going north - the bus actually moves along pretty quickly and will get you there in a couple of minutes.

    2) Take a taxi.
    You can get in one right outside the front door at Mirage. Cost will be around $9-10.


    Otherwise, as for the Bellagio to Monte Carlo tram: no, its not going to save you any walking distance.
    The "problem" is that to get to the tram, imagine if you are in Las Vegas right now and at the walkway connecting Bellagio to Caesars Palace: you have to go in to Bellagio, working your way to the back of the property through their shopping area. Now you are in the casino where you have to work your way to the front of the property to get to the lobby, only to then have to work your way back to the back of the property so you can get to the monorail, which ends up dropping you off at Aria where you have to go through the connecting walking to get to the back of Monte Carlo (and unless you are eating at The Pub you'll have to go to the front of the property to the other restaurants).

    We thought of taking the tram when we were there in April but it is quite a walk to the back of the B----beyond the Spa Tower.

    I can't imagine walking from the Mirage to the B ---then all the way through the shopping area and the casino and the lobby and then the hallway past the Conservatory leading to the Spa Tower and then continuing the walk to the tram.

    I don't even know what the walk would be through the MC to get to your restaurant.

    Really, take a cab.





    OHGoodness, you are doing a lady with a bad back no favors with that walk

    Which bus are you taking? The Deuce/SDX costs $8 per for a 24 hour pass now. But it's still a decent option, especially if they would possibly want to visit downtown that day.

    I agree the tram won't save a ton of walking, if any. Walking through Bellagio never seems to end.

    If you like walking through A/C casinos, then not a bad idea vs walking the street. And, during that 10 minute ride, you do get to sit down and catch your breath.

    I would take a cab. for 2 people, the cost per person is not much higher than bus.
    The tram won't save you any walking, in fact you end up walking almost double the distance, but with A/C
