Fly over the river!

This is another institution of the town : its famous cable-car that fly you over the banks of the river Isère toward the Bastille, which is a small fortified moutain.
Grenoble cable-car is the oldest french urban cable-car. It was built in 1934, on Paul Mistral's initiative (who was mayor of the city at that time).
We, inhabitants of Grenoble, nickname it informally "les bulles" (the bubbles) or "les oeufs" (the eggs)!
