Grenoble, France
Situated in south eastern France, Grenoble is located in one of the loveliest areas of the country - “une ville alpine par excellence” The town itself lies at the crossroads between the . valleys and the mountains which comprise the Dauphiné region. From Roman times to the 1968 Winter Olympics and on to today, Grenoble has attracted visitors from all over the world. With its 200,000 inhabitants, Grenoble is small enough to feel like a town, but large enough to offer all the amenities of a busy city (cultural festivals, theaters, museums). The “Capital of the Alps” , dominated by majestic mountains such as Chartreuse, Belledonne and Vercors, provides the ideal location for those who enjoy the outdoors. There is also easy access to Switzerland, Italy and the French Riviera, making Grenoble a marvelous place in which to study abroad.
