I would have to say that the view from the top of Mont Blanc is one of the most breath taking and beautiful views i have seen in my life. The snow covered peaks of the Alps is unique. I have been to the Canadian Rockies (BC) as well but this was different. My Advice is to check the forecast before you book your visit and the day you plan to go to the top. Check with the hotel they usually have the cam feeds for the view at the top , its not really worth it on a cloudy day as you wont see much. A 50 Euros may be a bit much , but you only do this once so go for it :)

What can you say but Wow. What a beautiful mountain range. All the way from Annecy we watched Mont Blanc get closer and were awed by the drive.

Be sure to take the train up to the glacier and have lunch at the lovely restaurant. Be sure to order the Au Gratin potatoes with ham. Take the tunnel to Annecy France but not on a weekend day. Annecy is a town you will never forget and will return to again and again. One of our favorite places for lunch in Chamonix is the Creamere ( sp).

I can't believe I spent $75 for a ride to the top of Mont Blanc, but it was completely worth the money. We had an incredibly clear day with not a cloud in the sky. What a great adventure!

Mount Blanc is not always visible as there are often clouds. It is the E.U. highest mountain towering above at 4,810m. Of course, this is the main attraction while in Chamonix. But there are other places in the region where you can see it as well. However, being in Chamonix valley and having a full view of Mont Blanc massif with all its amazing summits and glaciers remains a must. It is absolutely wonderful provided you 're there on a clear day.
