Grenoble-Bastille cable car

These beautiful transparent cable cars resemble giant bubbles that carry visitors from the town centre (altitude 212 m) up to the heart of Bastille (altitude 475 m), a small fortified mountain and tourist site.
Bastille Mountain overlooks Grenoble and is fortified right up to its summit (altitude 498 m).
Starting from the banks of the Isère River, visitors have the choice of two trails which lead either through Saint-Laurent to the east or the Dauphin Gardens to the west. A third option is to climb aboard the "bubble" cable cars and enjoy a spectacular panorama of the surrounding mountains.
