Grenoble is made up of a mixture of rushing life of people and historical treasures. The city is divided into two parts reflecting modern life and the historic Old Town. Thus, almost every visitor can find things interesting for him there from accommodation and entertainment facilities to historical places of interest. Some places of interest such as walls, for example, still remain original, built in the third century.
It is not a surprise that Grenoble is rich in its cultural life as it is one of the five largest cities in France.
Cultural festivals, bright theatre life and some interesting museums is not everything that Grenoble may offer to its visitors. Grenoble hosted the 1968 Winter Olympics and is preparing to bid for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Grenoble is also famous for many nearby ski resorts nestled in the surrounding mountains, and its Italian quarter, the 'Quartier Saint Laurent'.
