I felt La Bastille deserved it's own posting, being one the major tourist spots of Grenoble. Now, I know tourist sites usually mean crowded and often overrated. La Bastille was neither crowded and most definitely not overrated. Sometimes, places are highly recommended for a reason. It's about an hour hike up or ten minutes by téléphérique (my sister and I hiked up and took the téléphérique down), taking you to the top for a magnificent view of the city and Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps.
