"Situated near the massive peaks of the Aiguilles Rouges and, most notably, the Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix is one of the oldest ski resorts in France and known as the Alpine Capital of the World.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Aiguille du Midi as well as Rail Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chamonix: Les Gorges du Fier (in Lovagny) and Annecy (La Vieille Ville, Lac d'Annecy, & more). There's much more to do: fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, stop by Snell Sports, stroll the grounds of Chamonix Cemetery, and stroll through Glacier des Bossons.
