One of the best rides! The views are spectacular. You wonder how this can be so beautiful. We got to the pick, it's €50 pp but it so worth it. You enjoy every minute of the ride going up and down. Don't forget to take your camera, sunglases, applied sun block protection, at the top is very cold. Bring a parka, snow or hiking boots, and hat or ear protection. Keep your entry ticket very handy, you will need it all the time going up or down.
Between funiculars you have to climb some stairs. Do not hurry to the top, if you feel light headed rest a little bit and continue climbing.
They have a cafeteria at the top, good chocolate and hot soup, for keeping hydratated and warm. We went for a late lunch in an outdoor cafe in the village of Chamonix.
