“Panorama”
Review of Bastille

Bastille
Ranked #2 of 81 things to do in Grenoble
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 1, 2014

if u are in Grenoble, this would be equivalent to commit a crime if you will not visit Bastille, getting there with very original rope road. The view form Bastille is tremendous - Alps and the nice old city of Grenoble, which was hosting winter Olympics in 1968!
There is also located a small museum of Alps which is worse to see.

The hike from the river to the top takes 45 minutes at the most. I brought a chubby friend along. During the hike you go through a number of caves and tunnels. If you take the tram you miss all this.

The winding pathways up & down the Bastille are a joy to walk (or jog in my younger days!) you can easily spend a morning ambling around them, but there's not a lot to do at the Bastille itself; there's a restaurant which is expensive, but the views are spectacular. And sometimes a bit of a display / exhibition.

Take a camera and enjoy the fresh air.

If you are in Grenoble , you have to be at the Bastille from where you get the magnificient view of the city and especially River Siene flowing on 1 side and suddenly you will realize that the city is so pretty . Ideal for having small get togethers with friends , if you are a fitness freak , you can walk all the way upto the top , the cable car is also an option for getting nice clicks . If you walk all the way upto the top you can have views from different strategic locations on the way . This is a must do for anyone visiting Grenoble .

The cable cars and restaurant were closed on my visit but I decided to walk up the steep steps and ramps to the top. Well worth the effort for the fantastic views.
