"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.
Visiting Col de l'Echelle and La Jonction will get you outdoors. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Eglise Saint Michel and Le Musee Alpin. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chamonix: Lac d'Annecy (in Annecy), Le Hameau des Alpes (in La Clusaz) and Aussois (Notre-Dame de l'Assomption Church & L'Arche d'Oe). On the 25th (Tue), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Chamride.fr - Ski & snowboard instructor. There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Aiguille du Midi, see the interesting displays at Musee des Forges et des Moulins, look for gifts at Chocolatier, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise Saint-Michel.

For photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Chamonix trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Chambéry-Savoie Airport, Grenoble-Isère Airport and Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
