Grenoble, capital of the French Alps, is a large modern city very much on the up. The location of the town is exceptional; to the north are the cliffs of Néron and St-Eynard, to the West the escarpments of Vercors, to the East is the spectacular silhouette of the Belledonne mountain chain. Traditionally an intellectual city, the birthplace of Stendhal, it took on the appearance of modernity at the time of the Winter Olympics in 1968 which added to its reputation as an avant-garde town.
