About 15 minutes long but worth it if you’d like some back story on the town and mines. The driver was our narrator and was pleasant and knowledgeable. Like I said, a quick tour of a small town - in a closed trolley

Virginia City, Nevada is a town rich with history. When we asked at the Visitor Center which tours/attractions would be especially good for hearing about this city's heyday, the Virginia City Trolley was at the top of the list. It's actually an open-sided conveyance with...More

THere is a parking lot right where the trolley picks up. Other free lots are around the Main Street as well - everything looks safe with easy access.
