    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's not a real trap, but you could have to pay more for visiting Grenoble (museums, tourists hot spots) by taking and cumulating ticket entrance prices.

    Unique Suggestions: You could have a free-accesses + reduced prices + extra advantages for children

    - Free accesses: Grenoble museum, Small tourist train, The Bastille cable-car, guided tour or audio-guided tour
    - Reduced prices and exclusive advantages: other museums, The Chartreuse Cellars (Voiron)
    - Visits and discoveries: The Mysterious Stendhal affair, Last round in the Bastille, The Casamaures, Caves of Sassenage, Mandrin Brewery
    - Local products, restaurants, ...

    HOW: CITYPASS Grenoble (this is official, not balck market)
    The chequebook is available at the Tourist Office for 12,50€ (2008) and on

    Lazy Sundays

    by Nicky38 Written Jan 27, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing that always catches me out in France and especially in Grenoble is the "Lazy Sunday"

    There are no food shops open!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There are one or 2 exceptions but these close at midday!

    Fun Alternatives: One alternative is get yourself to the great food markets on Sunday.

    The "Marche d"estacade" is fab - with lots of local farmers selling fresh products.

    This market is under the railway tacks between the train station and Jean Jaures.

    Valfréjus is a rather cheap...

    by schielen Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Valfréjus is a rather cheap skiing-resort. The prices for food and drinks on the pistes are quite the opposite! A cup of tea costs you FF 20 (3 US$), a plate of french fries with saucages more than twice that price.
    It's better to buy something in the (only) grocery-store in the village, and take that with you in a small back-pack.
