Have you ever heard about Mont Blanc?
Located practically on the border with Italy, it holds the badge for being the highest mountain, not only from France but from entire Eurpe!
Around 42 minutes by car, from Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, this mountain is massive.
Above sea level, it's highest peak is around 4,808 meters (or 15,774 ft).
- Did you know Chamonix hosted the first Winter Olympic Games, back in 1924?
