    Ok, so I know there is a tram that runs between Monte Carlo, thru City Center and to Bellagio. Is there a stop somewhere along the line in between so we can get to Aria as well? We aren't strip people anymore and last time I was in the area of City Center I was playing at the small craps table at Boardwalk, so I don't have any knowledge of those entertwined properties. I thought we would spend a day poking around City Center and having lunch at Bellagio. Tram seems easier than going back and forth to the strip to walk between properties..
    Any help much appreciated.

    Yes, the tram stops at all three properties. The tram is at the back side of MC and Bellagio, but on the front of Aria. It runs regularily, so there is very little wait time.

    If you are getting on the tram at MC, you're already at Aria. You just have to walk down the stairs.

    There's an additional stop between the MC/Aria stop and Bellagio at Crystals if you want to go there.

    Was just on it two weeks ago. Stops are Bellagio, Crystals/Aria, Monte Carlo/Aria. I didn't go to the Aria, but it looked like each stop was of similar distance to Aria, just on different ends of the Casino

    The tram isn't very useful. The stations aren't exactly the places that you want to be and therefore you end up walking about the same distance you would if you just simply decided to walk rather than taking the tram.

    Definitely not a time saver.

    If you are at Monte Carlo and want to go to Aria:
    Head to the tram station (through the Street of Dream) but when you get there instead of turning left to the tram just go straight and down the escalator and you end up in Aria's casino.

    If you are at Bellagio and want to go to Aria:
    Head to the tram station (way at the back of Bellagio's shopping area) and ride the tram to Monte Carlo. When you exit the station head right to go to Monte Carlo and left to go to Aria.

    The tram can be helpful, or a sick joke, depending on what you are doing.

    The Bellagio end is the very back, past the chocolate fountain. (past the observatory)

    The other end is right between MC an Aria. You are totally inside at this point and a nice walk, either way. It is in the very back of MC.

    The middle stop is of very little use. It is on the upper level of the Crystals shopping mall, and a fair walk from there over to Aria, including a short (80 ft?) outside part.


    There are times it is good, and times it is not. Very good if too cold or too hot.

    I find the tram is a lot of fun to ride. As others have said, it is not an overly helpful way of transportation, but if you are spending the day just looking around, it is really cool. When you ride around the back of City Center, it remind me of the opening scene of the Jetson's cartoon (for those of you who remember the 60's).
