There's not much to do up in the Bastille but enjoy the views over the city, especially in a beautiful sunny day. Fun to take the cable car across the river and up the hill.

I strongly recommend a walk up the windy path to the Bastille. The walk took us about an hour (with 2 babies in carriers) and, whilst we built up a sweat, it wasn't particularly difficult. That said, we are all relatively fit anyway. There are...More

Only in Grenoble for the day (stopover) but going up to the bastille was a must. There's lots to do for all at the top and places to eat and drink.
