On a clear day, there top offers amazing views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains. Dress warm and leave a bit of time to explore the indoor museum.

Original plan was the Aguile du Midi, but it was closed for repairs this past June. This required a 45 minute back-track for us but well worth it. Added bonus of seeing Matterhorn once at the top, too! Requires transferring to yet another cable car...More

If you are not a seasoned mountain walker, this is the only way to admire the highest points in Europe. It’s a bit expensive, but worth it. Do not forget to go to the Torino Refugio!

It Is one of the most dramatic places in European Alps. Amazing structure and brand New rotating gondola. Experience of Mt. Blanc Is much better then from Chamonix side.

The Skyway ride was about 50 Euros but it was worth the money. The ride up and down allowed for nice views of the terrain and local mountains. The viewing area at the top was spectacular! We had coffee and pastries at the top that...More

The ticket price is as steep as the ascent, but it’s actually worth every cent of the 49 Euros. Once up, you feel light headed, both because of the thin air and knowing you are as close to Monte Bianco as you will probably ever...More

At some point you could go on foot to Aguille du Midi and go down in France. But last month the gondola was off service.

Travelling by car is far easier and there is a reasonable priced carpark right below it.
