    It is easy to reach Grenoble by the autoroutes..
    The A48/E711 leads to Lyon and from Lyon the whole Northern part of France.
    The A49/E 713 leads to Valence and from Valence to the Mediterranean and Spain.
    The A41/E 712 leads to Chambéry, Aix-les Bains, Annecy and Geneva and further to the whole Switzerland and Germany.
    Another leg of the A41 becomes the A43/E70 and connects to Turin, Milan, the whole Italy and South Central and Eastern Mediterranean.
    Of course, besides the autoroutes, there are numerous mountain roads; often very spectacular.

    The railway station has been built for the Winter Olympics on 1967. Grenoble has a very good fast connection with Paris by the TGV though it runs at high speed from Paris to Lyon while Lyon to Grenoble is at regular speed. However, on the whole, it takes a little less than 3 hours to go to Paris, which means that for this connection, you have better take the train than fly. There are an average of one TGV every hour.

    Travel to Grenoble

    by Nicky38 Written Jun 17, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Paris On arrival in Paris you need to go to the Gare de Lyon (railway station) to catch the high speed train (TGV) to Grenoble directly (approximately 3 hours). Alternatively there is a train from Paris to Lyon (St Exupéry) international airport and buses onward to Grenoble

    From Lyon The easiest way is to take the shuttle bus from the Lyon St Exupéry international airport to Grenoble. Inquire at the information desk as to where to catch it. The cost is 15€ if you are under 25, otherwise it’s 20 €.

    From Geneva There is a train from the airport to bring you into the city center of Geneva. There, you must change trains to come on to Grenoble. You can buy a ticket at the airport rail station which will get you all the way to Grenoble. Alternatively there is a direct coach service.

    Check the SNCF (French railways) website on www.sncf.com

    If you are under 25, I recommend you buy a card “la carte 12-25” which grants you from 25 up to 50 % discount. It costs 48 €. A one way ticket Paris – Grenoble costs 80 € (without any discount).

    The easiest way of reaching Grenoble is by flying to any of the international airports in Lyons or Geneva, Switzerland. From either of these it's about a two hour train ride to Grenoble's main station.

    From Dublin, Ireland to Grenoble, France. Take a plane to Paris; flying to Lyon is way too expensive! Try to get one of the cheap Ryan Air flights (www.ryanair.com). When you get to Paris, go to the Gare de Lyon and get a train to Grenoble. You should make a reservation if you're planning on using the TGV (online reservations are available through www.sncf.com).
    Definitely walk, rent a bike (they're very cheap to rent in the train station, especially if you're a student) and take the tram. Buses are not that effective (they get stuck in the traffic which sometimes is a bit over the top).

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By car you can reach Valfréjus using the A43 in France, using the last exit before the Fréjus-tunnel connecting France with Italy. Valfréjus is just 8 kilometer to the south of Modane, the town at the exit mentioned before. Comming from Italy the road to the Fréjus-tunnel has number A32.
    Modane has a international railwaystation, so you can travel by train as well. There is a busconnection (not very frequent!) to Valfréjus.

    We went to Valfréjus by bus. The travelagent Camelot (click the name to get to their Dutch website) provided this bus. We got on it in Utrecht on a friday-evening and drove through the night so we were there early in the morning. The way back was in the next weekend, departure on saterday, home on sunday.

    You can get to Grenoble in many different ways. The best ways are either the train or the car: the city is one of the best served in trains (it takes 3 hours to go to Paris) and in motorways. There's also an airport but it's very small and used only for national destinations.
    Everything (or almost) is at a walkable distance in Grenoble so you can definitely use your feet...plus you can see a lot more this way! However the public transportation has been rated among the 5 best ones in France so you'll definitely get good service if you decide to take the tram or the bus.

    A TGV station has been built in the airport and allows fast connections (less than 2 hours) with Paris. It has been built in order to allow the airport to be, somehow, another airport for Paris.

    VFD buses are useful to go from Grenoble to Lyons, ski resorts, Chambery, Chamonix... The website (in French AND English!) is really useful (network map, schedule, prices...)
