This is a great group or family outing, but allow plenty of time to go, as there is always a queue. Although fairly expensive, if the weather and visibility is good, the viewsame are absolutely stunning. After having visited Chamonix and been up to Aguille de midi, I prefer the skyway as it's more modern and more comfortable. Wear warm... More

This cable car is within 3 km from the courmayer, can be reached by bus. The view on Mont Blan is stunning. In the top there's cafeteria, price for the capuchino is only 2 euros. The cabins turn around 360 degrees.

If you are in Courmayeur or the region on a clear day do not miss this experience. Climbing to the summit at an altitude of 3,465 meters is carried out using a modern cable car rotating on its axis, allowing for spectacular views towards west Aosta Valley and the surrounding mountains. Breathtaking views from the summit justifies every euro of... More

We had a perfect blue sky day and the views were just magic. There was virtually no queue in late September. There's no doubt the altitude has a noticeable effect especially if you live at sea level and haven't had a chance to acclimatise. It's no problem if you take things slowly and stop and enjoy the view every few... More

We had gone to Italy through the Mont Blanc Tunnel specifically to use this 'new' lift and it was truly fabulous. The price is high - 48€ for an adult return trip (there are under 12 and over 65 prices - 42€) but it is a memorable lifetime experience. The cabins rotate as you rise up to 3,560 metres. At...

A must for Courmayeur. I hope to bring my kids next time. I recommend it to everybody. We were able to see the Matterhorn from there:-)

there are two levels, the fist level at 7000 feet has a very nice restaurant, be sure to try the Valpellimentze soup. Spectacular views and a ncie alpine garden. The top level was in cloud so did not stay long. you may get lightheaded it is 12,000 feet, they really should warn you ahead of time.
