The Best Museums And Galleries In Grenoble

Carlotta Bosi

Grenoble is a nice and characteristic city on the Rhone, at the very feet of the Alps. Despite being so close to the highest mountain range in Europe, Grenoble is mostly flat, so tourists can visit the town’s amenities with ease. The whole town is visible from the Bastille, a medieval fortress, that is now reachable by a fun ride on Les Bulles – the Bubbles – a cable-car service. Oh, and the art galleries and museums are top-notch. Check them out…
