Grenoble

4.1

Capital of the Alps

At the foot of the French Alps where the river Drac joins the Isère (the lion and the serpent), Grenoble offers you tons of winter and summer activities to keep the entire family busy, like hiking, climbing, skiing, and snowboarding, as well as swimming in clean mountain lakes. Due to the proximity of the mountains and the city's size, locals have lovingly coined the phrase "Capital of the Alps" to describe their city surrounded by three mountain chains: the Vercors, Chartreuse, and Belledonne.

Despite its mountainous surroundings, Grenoble itself is one of the flattest cities in Europe, so cycling is an easy way of getting around. Métrovélo rents bicycles at many kiosks around town, and four comfortable tramlines cross the town, with fast service every several minutes. The cable car is the easiest way to see the town from above, and the trip in the plastic bubbles is impressive. At the summit 260 m (853 ft) above the town, you can explore the fortifications, have a meal or light refreshment, follow winding paths further up the mountainside, or simply enjoy the view. Several high-speed trains (TGV) from SNCF link Paris to Grenoble directly every day. Grenoble is in Isere.
