    Great place to visit in the summer. Excellent view but it's 28,50euros per person so I guess the restrooms could be a little bit better than they are. The bar at the top of the L ' index it's too smal...  more »

    Cable car much less busy than the Aiguille du midi, so much more than quiet at the top which allows to enjoy the view! The first section (Flégère) is a cable car. We can stop, picnic (available canteen) and hiking. 2 section is a chairlift which makes the climb really interesting! Loved it! Super nice view of Mont Blanc! Unfortunately we had time to explore a halfway (before the 2nd part), but it sounded great too! I recommend it really more than the needle, where we did only wait our turn and be caught in the crowd upstairs. The chairlift really given a stamp to this site!
