Be sure to take the tram rides up to Aiguille du midi and take in the surrounding views of Alps including Mont Blanc towering just behind. On a clear day, you can view France, Italy, and Switzerland.

Not being a fan of heights, getting up to the top was challenging for me and took me out of my comfort zone completely, but oh was it worth it despite the stress and the cost! For €60 each you take two cable cars to the main area with the toilets, cafe, terrace etc, then a lift or stairs to... More

Amazing experience for a sunny day in French Alpes. There is a huge, cheap parking down next to the cable car which was nearly empty when we arrived on sunny Saturday in February. Although the return ticket costs 60euros, the whole journey is absolutely worth that money! We had beautiful weather and we visited the Aiguille du Midi in late... More

we spent a morning up here as it was included in our ski pass. it takes 2 gondola rides to get to the top (around 20 minutes) but the views are worth the wait. there's also a café up there if you want to make a day of it. and make sure you get your picture stepping in to the... More

This must be one of the most incredible views one can have in a life time. We loved every part of our visit! Definitely be prepared for the cold and wind. Try to be by a window for the cable car -- ours was packed, and it is shame to miss out on the views on the way up! The... More

We visited this glorious spot on a sunny, but windy day. The views were amazing. One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. Ride a tram and then there's a bit of walking at extremely high altitudes. Loved it!

We took our two kids (3&5) up on the lift and they loved it! Those with a fear of heights (like me) might find it quite hair raising - when the lift goes over the mechanics it wobbles quite a bit! But it is worth it. The view from the top is spectacular. You can choose to go up to... More
