The visit by gondola to the top is very pricey at about 60 Euro but when in Rome.... It was worth the price as the views are absolutely stunning. The trip is in two segments by gondola. We went directly to the top and then...More

Not that big of a deal. It's just tall and cold. Not really worth €63 for everything. Pay more to go to the panoramic Mont Blanc. We didn't go because it's closed. Also pay more to go to the italian peak. They both closed today....More

I nearly fell over at the price to get to the top, but the reason we came to Chamonix Mont Blanc. Ride up was a little scary with the cable car rocking back and forth. Wish we had more time to explore the first level...More

Fun journey, involving two extremely packed cable cars. When at the top, suberb mountain vistas. The air can be thin up there as well. Can be chilly, so layers is a must.There are a couple of restaurants on the top as well. Soups, coffee and...More

I recommend taking the additional cable car across the Mont Blanc Massif, from the Aiguille du Midi to Point Helbronner (on the French/Italian border). If you like good food, I recommend the restaurant Le 3842 at Midi. If you use a Mont Blanc Multipass, remember...More
