Get ready to feel the heat. And we don't mean from the sun. There's a lot of hot stuff going on at The Mirage.The resort's iconic attraction (and really one of the more popular attractions on the Las Vegas Strip) is a volcano. It sits right in front of the property in a tranquil lagoon...at least this lagoon is tranquil until the volcano erupts, which happens several times a night. Steam rises. Water shoots up. Lava spews. And flames dance. Seriously, they do. Choreographed to a soundtrack created by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and tabla player Zakir Hussain, these little fireballs have some smokin' moves.The volcano isn't the only attraction at The Mirage. Everyone who enters usually stops to snap a photo in the tropical atrium. Under a towering dome just inside the resort's front doors, it's teeming with exotic flowers. And then over behind the front desk, you'll become engrossed with a huge aquarium that houses more than 450 fish.Speaking of where the wild things are, you can't leave the resort without visiting Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Built for education and preservation, these two habitats offer you the rare chance to view leopards, white tigers and white lions (say hello to the adorable white lion cubs -- Madiba, Timba-Masai and Freedom for us when you go) as well as bottlenose dolphins. Bet you didn't think you'd see all those animals in Vegas?And then there's the entertainment at The Mirage. The Beatles "LOVE" by Cirque du Soleil, Terry Fator, Boyz II Men: each one is a truly remarkable show. So what should you do about them? See all three!"LOVE" takes place in a circular, custom-built theater. Not only will the music wow you (it comes from The Beatles' original recordings), but the imaginative props and costumes will transport you to another time. Fator, a singing ventriloquist, and his collection of puppets (characters like Winston the Impersonating Turtle and country singer Walter T. Airdale) will have you in stitches. And ladies will swoon in the aisles at the "Mowtownphilly" melodies of Boyz II Men -- those smooth-as-silk singers!Plus, thanks to the ongoing Aces of Comedy series, comedians like Jay Leno, Ray Romano, Tim Allen, Kathy Griffin and Daniel Tosh swing by the resort on select weekends to crack audiences up with their antics.Dining at The Mirage is another pleasure. In just a short walk, you'll pass by Stack Restaurant & Bar by chef Brian Massie; Japonais, where East meets West in a wonderful way; and Portofino, which features Italian classics with a modern twist. At Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak, all kinds of meats are prepared over open flames in either wood-burning ovens or on charcoal grills. Go ahead...try and choose...all of these restaurants are delicious!More eateries are tucked into other corners of The Mirage. Open to the casino, the smells coming from Samba, a Brazilian steakhouse that serves rodizio-style meals, will make your mouth water. The Chinese restaurant Fin showcases live seafood -- steamed, baked or wok-fried. For a sandwich stuffed beyond belief, head to the Carnegie Deli. Burgers of all invention along with five varieties of fries are prepared at BLT Burger. And then there's the resort's buffet, Cravings, where you'll feel like you're strolling down a street crammed with international cuisine.Actually, if you want to spend time on a famous street, check out Rhumbar. This cool lounge has an outdoor patio where you'll have a fabulous view of the Strip. Kick back here with either a refreshing mojito or a cigar and just take it everything in.Looking for a place to party? Then go to 1 OAK Las Vegas, a nightclub imported from New York City. Divided into two separate rooms with their own bars and music formats, you never know who you might see. Maybe hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis? Or one of the Kardashians? The list of celebrities who have passed through 1 OAK's doors is endless.When The Mirage opened in 1989, it was one of the first true megaresorts on the Las Vegas Strip. A hottie of a property way back then, today it continues to fan those flames.
 

How far away is this hotel from various amusement parks and the stratosphere?

Walking distance or by public transportation please. I would just like to know how far away some thrill rides that I want to go on are.
It is far from the stratosphere. I don't recommend to go walking from the palazo.

If you're looking for luxury, Las Vegas is definitely the city to be in. However, if you're looking for the I-want-to-pretend-I'm-a-celebrity-and-indulge-in-the-best kind of luxury, then The Palazzo Hotel and Casino is the place for you.As the younger sibling to its sister property, The Venetian, The Palazzo has fully embraced the spoiled youngest child stereotype with posh rooms, upscale dining and high-end shopping.To truly capitalize on the Palazzo's luxury, you'll want to stay in the Prestige Suites -- the exclusive concierge level on the 23rd floor. Here you'll enjoy champagne at check-in, afternoon tea, personal concierge assistance and more. However, if you're saving your dollars, know that the standard room in this all-suite hotel has a minimum of 720-square-feet to make your stay as indulgent as possible.  And if a show is on your agenda, you'll be an elevator ride away from the hotel's theater where "Frank - The Man. The Music." plays. Starring impressionist Bob Anderson, the production depicts the legendary entertainer's music from three distinct perspectives -- the recording studio, television specials and personal appearances.Now we get to the good -- we are talking lip-smaking, order seconds good -- stuff. The restaurants at The Palazzo are nothing short of delicious seeing that they originate from the who's who of the culinary world. Take Cut by illustrious chef Wolfgang Puck. This stylish steakhouse offers cutting-edge interior design and a sophisticated menu of the finest prime beef. But that's just the beginning. There's also Carnevino, an Italian-themed steakhouse by Chef Mario Batali, with an international wine list from winemaker Joe Bastianich; Morel's French Steakhouse & Bistro, a contemporary restaurant where traditional French cuisine meets the popular flavors of American cooking. Plus, you can experience an amazing evening of modern Brazilian/Japanese cuisine at SushiSamba or enjoy a delicious specialty hamburger with a variety of unusual toppings at i?burgers.Hungry yet? Hopefully because in addition to the aforementioned, world-class chef Emeril Lagasse opened the elegant Table 10 to showcase his distinctive Creole cooking. But, if you're mood isn't quite feeling a white tablecloth, guests can also check out the laid-back, party atmosphere in his sports bar, Lagasse's Stadium. Here Lagasse combines snack favorites with his bold culinary creations. At Lagasse's Stadium you will also enjoy plush stadium-style seating, skyboxes, an abundance of big-screen TVs, billiard tables and an outdoor patio just steps from the Strip as well.Speaking of casual eateries, check out Grimaldi's, the famous Brooklyn-born, thin-crust pizzeria for an anytime bite or try out the wide selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner items -- along with 20 fantastic desserts -- at the Grand Luxe Café.But wait, there's more! No, not more restaurants (we think The Palazzo covered every dining craving possible), but better yet, the bars.Since no truly epic story ever started with a salad, to get the good times rolling and to make them last, the Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Bar and the Fusion Latin Mixology Bar pour an array of decadent hand-crafted cocktails, beers and wines. In addition to The Salute Lounge, which features high-energy bands, and the Laguna Champagne Bar, which is perfect for more intimate mixing and mingling.And if you are the type who likes to arrive at a destination that will meet all of your requests for an all-encompassing experience, Lavo, a restaurant with a fusion of chic design and signature drinks, is certainly the place to be. Operated by the same people who created Tao Asian Bistro and Nightclub, it offers fine Italian cuisine and a sexy bar vibe. The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo has bragging rights for bringing Barneys New York to Las Vegas. The 875,000-square-foot Grand Canal-themed mall flows from the indoor canal at The Venetian all of the way to the Waterfall Atrium at The Palazzo and presents shopaholics with an exquisite lineup of approximately 160 upscale fashion, jewelry and lifestyle stores. And if you're one of those who likes to literally shop until you drop, make sure you drop in the vicinity of the hotel's five-acre pool deck. Situated on the fourth floor, the five-acre facility is merged with that of The Venetian. In total, there are seven different pools (including the adults-only Azure Pool), four hot tubs and 41 cabanas. Or guests can seek out a pampering experience at Canyon Ranch SpaClub- A tranquil sanctuary with a sauna, a steam room, more than 80 treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness studio, a 40-foot rock climbing wall and a grill that serves healthy gourmet cuisine… oh there you go, more dining!Since it's adjoined to the gigantic 4,027-room Venetian, anything that's not at The Palazzo is just steps away, like Broadway-caliber shows, including "Rock of Ages."The Palazzo proudly and rolls out all the latest trends in retail, restaurants and luxurious living. Coexisting with Las Vegas' neon displays and non-stop action, guests can revel in it all in their own private room atop one of the city's favorite resorts.
 

What is Passaporto di Carnevale Pass?

I did not see an explanation on the website.
They have kind of a Venice carnival this days in both the palazzo and venitian hotel.
The passaporto comes with some discounts for restaurants and places inside the hotels.
If you are going to eat and hang out inside the hotels it might help you to save 15-20% in some bars and restaurants.
They also give you complementary coupons for a bar and cafe. Not a big deal, nut helpful.

What hours are the pool(s) open?

The pools are open 9:00 am to 8:00 pm.
the TAO beach on Sundays closes earlier because I went at 6:30 and they told me it was closed.
