Thanks

From Geneva, drive to Annecy (visit), Aix-les-Bains (visit), Chambéry (visit).

From Chambéry, Fréjus tunnel, Torino, Alessandria, Parma, Bologna, Firenze

All three routes are scenic and through beautiful towns. I will mention on route 1 : Susa, Piacenza, Modena and Bologna.
The coast road (route 2 and 3) is scenic all the way.
Route 1 is more for beautiful towns, route 2 and 3 for the landscape.

Re: Road travel

by gfinesilver

you can also consider stopping at the lake region: garda or como. quite beautiful. then head south

Re: Road travel

by JLBG

Sure that this is a possible option and I agree that they are very beautiful but this is not really on the way. Moreover, that would mean passing by Milan.

i didn't consult a map before responding. my bad

Re: Road travel

by rudy.viae

Another option, if you don't mind spending more time on the roads, would be to go this route:
Chamonix - Aosta (beautiful!) - Varese - Como - Bergamo (this way you avoid Milan) - Brescia - Verona -
and then head south through Modena and Bologna.

Or else, you could drive down to Torino, Asti, Alessandria, Piacenza, Parma, Modena, Bologna. This route crosses the northern plains. Maybe it would be worth stretching as far as Pavia, because that's a really nice place, too.

Travel Tips for Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

VALLEY BLANCHE GLACIER

by RACCOON1

The Valley Blanche Glacier was the reason I chose to go to Chamonix . It was closed due to snow conditions.

Before you set your sights on the Vallee Blanche monitor the snow conditions and confirm that the " Vallee' is indeed open.

Uphill has the right-of-way

by firechick

This rule applies when hiking on narrow mountain trails or when 2 cars are meeting on a narrow lane on a hill. The uphill party has the right-of-way and should not be forced to stop - the downhill party should give-way.

Not only is this polite, it will help to prevent accidents - especially in winter when roads and trails are slippery.

Glacial hiking or ski-touring (ski randonee)

by firechick

This is definitely more involved than a standard hike, since you need to have knowledge of glacial travel and crevasse rescue techniques to go it alone. If you do, then there are plenty of places to go here. If you don't then you need to hire a mountain guide to go. The Mer de Glace is an easy starting place, or also the Glacier of Argentiere (accessed from Lognan) also leads to some wonderful mountains. The routes change from year to year, season to season as the glacier moves and crevasses change - so moving over the glacier is a different experience each time. Summer is the best time to hike (crevasses are easy to see) otherwise, mid-winter is better for ski-touring as long as there has been a good snow-fall to make bridges. Always rope up in winter!!! Crampons, ice axe, rope, ice screws, carabiners, harness, gore tex clothing, layers of warm clothing, gloves (even in summer since if you fall in a crevasse or when night hits, it gets cold quickly), good hiking boots, back pack and bivvy gear (but you can also stay at mountain huts), and a good trail map (and compass). You can go on day hikes or overnight.

Tips for buying your ski lift pass

by firechick

The slopes in Chamonix now offer 4 hour passes, which are good starting at any time (ie no more 'half day' passes where you must wait until noon to start using them). The clock counts down from the time you first go through a turnstyle, and from then you have 4 hours of skiing.

If you are a beginner or intermediate who is still wobbly on red runs, do not bother getting the 'Mont Blanc Unlimited' ski pass. This more expensive pass contains higher lifts that access several black ungroomed and off piste runs which will not be useful for your ability level.

Instead, get Chamonix 'Le Pass' which allows you to access all of Le Tour, Le Brevent, and Le Flegere as well as all but one lift at Les Grandes Montets. You can always pay the difference to upgrade your pass later if you want to, even if you buy a several day pass.

If you want a rest day check out the 'non consecutive day' ski passes on offer. They cost a bit more but allow the flexibility to take 1 or 2 days off from skiing to do something else, and then ski again a day or two later.

La Tete de Balme

by mariev

Climbing (hiking) to the Tete de Balme , when the weather allows, you can see the whole Chamonix valley from above.

The lift that goes there (from Balme/Charamillon) is the startpoint for superb mountain ski and off roads skiing when you head in the direction of the col des Montets (if you do it, take care, check the snow conditions and have an ARVA)
