“an exciting hike up the Bastille”
Review of Bastille

Bastille
Ranked #2 of 80 things to do in Grenoble
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I'm back from my morning hike up the mountain la Bastille. Surprisingly, climbing up the mountain offered me nice magnificent views of the city and I didn't know Grenoble is so big. It hosted the Olympics in the 1968, that's why the infrastructure in the city is so good because they had did planning for the future. It is sunny weather again today which is very good for outdoor activities.
For the less fit, they can choose to take the cable car up to the fort which costs about 8 euros. But I personally think that hiking up is more fun, if not you can also choose to do the via ferrata which is like climbing up the vertical face of the mountain using harness and rope.

The fortress itself is dull, i liked the tunnels and the small cave.. I drove my way up and it was the best part of the trip... the hike in the nearby woods is great.

Great views and a passbale restaurant which is open in the evenings too. Service was a bit 'bored' but did not detract too much from the overall experience.
