Aiguille du Midi

Highly recommended
After a cable car ride, you will find yourself at an altitude of 3,842m/12,605ft, in a grandiose mountainscape. The 360° view over the French, Swiss and Italian Alps is breathtaking. Those in search of thrills should head to the terrace and the small 1m² glass cage. Should you manage to last more than a few seconds on the glass floor, you will enjoy one of the finest views of Mont Blanc suspended at a height of 1,000m/3,282ft! Not recommended for vertigo sufferers...
