This is the second largest museum in France after the Louvre. It was impossible to take it all in in one day and I spent three afternoons there. The collection of religious paintings is spectacular and the restaurant serves excellent snacks and meals. Underground parking makes it easy and this should not be missed. Grenoble is a fantastic place to... More

I have visited the museum on many occasions, and sadly have never found it inspirational or enjoyable. French museums often seem geared at the initiated and pretentious, and Grenoble's is no different. This last occasion was an evening guided tour for a company Christmas dinner (in the restaurant of the same complex), but again,the guide was pretentious and we were... More

These photographs show just some of the places we visited during our stay. The Cathedral Notre Dame, Funicular and Bastille are reported in separate posts. We camped outside the city and caught trams into the heart of Grenoble. Let the photos inspire you to visit this vibrant and interesting city.

Thank heavens I returned to this restaurant, which I hadn't visited for 2 years. The chef and his/her standards has obviously changed, improved enormously. Very extensive menu choice, food freshly prepared to order. The brochette de canard I ordered was fabulous, our group tasted the salade minceur, the burgers, the veggie lasagna and everyone RAVED. Prices are quite fair. Service... More

Beautiful modern construction facility that includes a very well equipped theatre for presentations of mid large size. You should at least check it out.

This museum got three stars from the Michelin guide and i give it four stars. This is one of the most prestigious museums in France with art from 13C - 19C. Exceptional quailty of the artworks makes a visit manditory.
