Aiguille du Midi

Highly recommended
With its cables suspended, in places, over 500m above the ground, and its no less hardy cable car that travels along it, the Aiguille du Midi cable car is the most impressive attraction in the French Alps. From its central spire (3 842m), the very top of the Aiguille, there is a panoramic view - as impressive as it is vertiginous - over the Mont Blanc range, and thrills to be had at the Pas dans le vide.
