Grenoble is considered a “city in the mountains” and sports the motto “in Grenoble, every street ends with a mountain.” The city of Grenoble itself is seen as a gateway to mountain chains like the Chartreuse and the Vercors, which sits above the town of Sassenage, once the playground for the Grenoble bourgeois. The valley’s agricultural traditions thrive in the plains of Varces, where the Vercors-Sassenage blue cheese is crafted. Despite being the “capital” of the French Alps, there aren’t any Cultural Routes crossing through Grenoble. However, you can still embark on a trail through the countryside that’s just as cultural, hiking straight from the city centre to chapels perched on the hillside villages surrounding Grenoble.
