Although nowhere can officially assert capital status over the Alps Mountain range, Grenoble can make a pretty good claim. Due to its prime location at the foot of the Alps, Grenoble Airport serves a host of ski resorts and towns around the Rhone-Alps region, as well as the beautiful city of Grenoble itself, which makes car hire from Grenoble Airport very popular.
Grenoble is a stunning city adorned with an incredible natural landscape, which you can survey in all its glory from the top of the Bastille. Grenoble Airport is 45km northwest of the city on the A48, so hiring a car at Grenoble Airport is particularly advantageous in terms of transfers.
Grenoble has a truly incredible setting at the foot of the Alps and so the first stop for many tourists is the Bastille. The Bastille is a Fortress on the edge of the Chartreuse Mountains, peering over Grenoble and the wider countryside. Cable cars take you to the top of the Bastille where the views are sublime. Grenoble is home to many highly acclaimed tourist attractions and the Archaeological Museum on Place Saint-Laurent is completely absorbing and thoughtfully prepared. Ski resorts like those in L'Alpe-d'Huez are only 65km on the D1091, making Grenoble the ultimate Alps city in terms of city life and access to the mountains.
Driving in the area around Grenoble is a real treat, and there are few better routes than around Vercors. Cross the Isere River and drive 31km from the centre of Grenoble on the D531, and you'll come to the Parc Naturel Regional du Vercors where you'll see some mind-blowing mountain ranges. When you're in a region blessed with phenomenal scenery in both the summer and winter months, it seems a shame not to explore, making hiring a car in Grenoble Airport very popular.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
