Highs & Lows

The stunning view at the mountains and the sea!

Problems with AirBnB (nothing to do with the city itself)

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Next time I would like to visit more places and try more new restaurants.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    The AirBnB in Grenoble was stunning but sadly it wasn't possible to find the key at the first night (because they forgot to put it somewhere), so we had to stayed in a hotel for one night and had to pay for it by ourselves.

  • How was the food?

    Grenoble: Ontario (canadian) - dish: poutine, Chez Marius (classic french), Namastay (great indian food) Marseille: Izmir (next to main train station: Saint-Charles)

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    learn some french sentences (people in France are not good in english!)

  • Packing tips?

    You need warm clothes during winter. It's really cold!

  • Transportation Tips?

    Grenoble: You can just use the public transport. The tram is very convenient and is driving frequently. Marseille: take the subway or the bus Grenoble: You should be able to reach every place by foot
