The town of 'Cham' as it’s affectionately known is both charming and cosmopolitan. The pedestrianised centre is characterised by its Victorian architecture - a reminder of when the British began to visit, today it is full of shops, galleries, restaurants and cafés, making it good to visit both day and night.
Chamonix also has plenty of museums for those wanting to delve a little deeper into the fascinating history of the valley.
There is also a vast array of gastronomic delights from typical mountain restaurants serving Savoyard specialities to international cuisine to stylish Michelin starred restaurants.
