We do love a cable car, and you should too. Engineering, excitement and gorgeous views combine to provide that most complete of travel experiences, all with the added knowledge that the car exists to take you somewhere, not to be the main event. It is everything we want humanity to be, in a single piece of engineering wonder. The Grenoble-Bastille Cable Car ferries more than 300,000 people from A to B on an annual basis, a journey that lasts three or four minutes but will stay with your forever. The cable car is open all year long, although it is closed on Mondays from October to April. Tickets start at €5.60 one way, with a charge of €8.50 for those looking to go up and down.
