5) ChamonixSituated on the border of Italy, Switzerland and France this place encases the 3 cultures beautifully. Filled with Pizza and Fondue places Chamonix sits the bottom of the Alps and right next to the star of the Alps – Mount Blanc. A very famous Skiing destination amongst the professionals, during the season you will find this place filled with thrill seekers. This is a place where you can point the camera in any direction and end up with impeccable pictures.
We took Montenvers railway's toy train looking red trams to go to Mer de Glace (sea of ice). It was beautiful train ride passing through valley and magical forests.Hope is beautiful thing, perhaps as beautiful as what lays at end of this track.
Unfortunately, staying atop isn't cheap either physically or economically. Back to the town, most of streets open up to undeniable spectacular view of Mont Blanc, some streets have dramatic views of river Arve and other streets are equally mesmerizing.
