    We are headed to Las Vegas in a couple weeks. We have comped rooms at Aria and Caesars with friends staying in the Caesars room. I suspect we will end up walking the Aria to Caesars route many times per day. We are not the picture of perfect health by a long shot :)

    What is the shortest and fastest way to get from the Aria elevators to the Caesars Augustus Tower? We are familiar with the route out the front of Aria, through Crystals, through Cosmo, past Bellagio, and over to Caesars. This route leave you a long way from the Augustus tower. Is there a back way? Use of a tram? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You can use the tram from Aria to Bellagio. It isn't necessarily shorter because you still have to walk to/from the back of Bellagio but at least you're indoors in air conditioning.

    I walk across the drive to Vdara and straight through into the Spa tower of Bellagio.
    Walk through the casino to the shops and exit south across the bridge onto Flamingo at Caesars.
    You are there.

    Those are great suggestions. Thank you.

    Any advantage by going outside Aria to Harmon and then taking the back way in along Frank Sinatra?

    Zero advantage to going back to Frank Sinatra. Not even sure if there is pedestrian access.

    From the elevators, go out the north valet entrance at Aria, through Vdara and through Bellagio. Pretty direct and almost all indoors.

    If you need to stop and take a break, there are nice, quiet places to sit between the Spa Tower at Bellagio and the lobby.

    Cutting through Bellagio is the shortest route, the bridge to Caesars has direct access from the shops at the north end of Bellagio.

    Instead of walking the whole rt, take the tram from Aria to Bellagio then walk through Bellagio cross the pedestrian bridge to Ceasars

    Without question.....use the tram that links the Bellagio to Aria. It's a nice commute. I stayed at Caesars my last two trips, but did a fare amount of gambling at Aria. The tram is certainly the ticket.

    The tram from the middle of Aria is of marginal value. If you are on the Monte Carlo side, it would be okay.

    From the middle of Aria --- go outside to Vdara and then into the back of Bellagio. Walk through Bellagio and through their shops to the cross over to Caesars.

    If the weather is bad, this is way better than the street.

    If really bad, then back track to the tram that loads between Monte Carlo and Aria.

    THERE IS NO STOP AT ARIA ITSELF.

    Unless you are right in the corner of the Aria casino by the walkway to Monte Carlo and the Tram I can't see how the tram saves you any distance. The walk from Aria through Vdara to Bellagio is not far at all. I don't even take that tram if I am going from Monte Carlo to Bellagio - not worth the time it takes to me, although if you have real difficulty walking I guess I can see why you would want to take the tram then. Otherwise I have never really seen the benefit of that tram at all. Lots of time (and added stairs) for little benefit if you are comfortable walking.

    Since you are going to do this multiple times, you can try both methods and see which is better for you. Then you can decide if you want to take a cab. Also split up the meeting places with your friends among CP, Aria, Cosmo, and Bellagio.

    The tram is absolutely useless. You'll end up walking farther to get to the Tram access at Crystals or at Monte Carlo then it would take to walk out of the North Valet to get to the Bellagio stop from the Aria room elevators. That tram is only useful if you're at Monte Carlo and trying to get to Bellagio and vice versa. There's really no benefit to the tram if you're already at the Aria.

    North Valet to Vdara and through the Bellagio is the best way.

    I think you can go through the Vdara and then the Bellagio.

    On the other hand, you can just walk out to the Strip and head north. Not the shortest route, but probably the funnest.

    This is the best way!
    I have tried all the routes multiple times.
    The longest is walking to the Strip and back up..
    The tram will save a little time over that route but straight through Vdara and into Bellagio is the most direct and easiest walk.
