The 360 Photo shows the breathtaking view of the Mont Blanc Group (Gruppo del Monte Bianco) as it can be appreciated just outside the arrival of the second highest aerial tramway in Europe, connecting the Italian town of Courmayeur to Punta Hellbronner (3462 m) and the nearby Rifugio Torino (3355 m). This aerial tramway was built without the help of helicopters around the middle of 20th century and in summer is connected to the French Aiguille du Midi crossing the vast glaciers. It is considered one of the Wonders of the World. The 360 Photo opens to the Mont Blanc: the white snow summit is the highest point with 4807 m. On the close left are some beautiful peaks like the Aiguille Noire de Peuterey and the Aiguille Blanche with the "fingers" of Dames Anglaises in between. On the other side of the panorama is the isolated Dent du Geant (Dente del Gigante). On such rocks and glaciers have been written some of the most important chapters of the alpine climbing's history.
