Grenoble is a student city; they have about 5 to 6 universities there. Therefore, you can see many young faces and they can be foreign to Grenoble. This place is better known where it started of French revolution from the small city about 20KM called Vizille. There are a few famous people come from here, the French writer Stendhal, The man that discover/translate Egyptian writing, Champollion and my favorite French Pop artist Calogero. Perhaps this universities student came from all over France or the world. I can hear people speaking English on the street.
