Old talk[edit]

I think it would be very nice to have a short explanation of the concept of "twin town", excerpted from the twin town entry. What do you think?


Champollion wasn't born in Grenoble but in Figeac near Toulouse. But it's true he lived there during his childhood. (http://www.20six.fr/kubrick)

Transportation[edit]

IMHO the "how to get there" info belongs in WikiTravel. Meanwhile the actual information on Grenoble transport (3 tramlines now, I believe) is limited to a vague phrase about there being public transport run by semitag. hmm. hint: 'tag' stands for 'transport de l'agglomeration grenobloise'.

- As a note, Saturday 06-10-2007 (dd-mm-yyyy) a new Tramway line (D) was inaugurated which brings the total number of trams to 4 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stefan.constantin (talkcontribs) 11:08, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Births[edit]

I remove Andre The Giant of the list, because Andre was born in Coulommiers and not at Grenoble. My Grand Mother never came at Grenoble. Boris Roussimoff, Andre's nephew.

Bastille location[edit]

Is the mountain that the Bastille is situated on part of Chartreuse, or a different mountain? Thanks. 68.40.65.164 00:51, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Part of Chartreuse, I think. --Kubrick 908 13:14, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

The Bastille is indeed part of the Chartreuse Chartreuse. Grenoble is surrounded by 3 mountains (Vercors, Belledonne and Chartreuse)

They are not simply mountains, but mountain chains —Preceding unsigned comment added by 152.77.24.38 (talk) 17:07, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Bars and Restaurants[edit]

"Grenoble has many restaurants from cheap to expensive of almost every cuisine, but particularly common are Italian and Asian establishments." Could someone improve that part? It seems a bit too general, as lots of french cities do have many italian and asian restaurants as well.

Economic Information[edit]

It would be nice to have some economic information about Grenoble. For example, median wage, median household/family income, top employers, average home price, cost of a gallon of milk/loaf of bread/liter of petrol, and how that compares to the rest of France and/or Europe.Badlandz (talk) 03:14, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Translation errors[edit]

Could someone please translate "IIIème century after J. -C. on our days" somewhat better? Thanks. :) Mikon (talk) 20:38, 19 November 2008 (UTC)


I believe what they're trying to say is "3rd century A.D.". I'll go ahead and change it. JJ Valdez (talk) 00:14, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Climate[edit]

What is the climate like? Can someone add this information to the article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by SquareWave (talkcontribs) 07:57, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
