Destination

Beautifully situated on the Drac and Isere rivers, and surrounded by mountains, Grenoble, the self-styled "capital of the Alps", is a lively, modern city, home to four universities, with more than 50,000 students. The history of the city encompasses a period of more than 2,000 years. Grenoble has been the capital of Dauphine since the 11th century. The city is also famous for the Journee des Tuiles, a local uprising in 1788 which is said to be the first act of the French Revolution. The city experienced a period of economic expansion in the 19th and 20th centuries, symbolized by the holding of the X Olympic Winter Games in 1968. Nowadays, Grenoble is a significant scientific center in Europe.
