The train is interesting and fun but very expensive - over 50 euros for a family of 4, so it would be best to spend the entire day on the plateau.

I like to do it, The trip itself is nice, but not exceptional either. The best is what you find at the top: the nice village of Saint Hilaire du Touvet. The best is certainly to watch the paragliders taking off in front of amazing...More

This cable car trip is a must. One of the steepest in the Alps, it takes you to a plateau quite suitable for a family day hike. You may also take your bike and ride it down to the valley. On a good sunny day...More
