Chambery, experience the unforgettable in the french Alps Mountains

Chambery, in the Rhone-Alpes region in the southeast of France, is home to the impressive Castle of the Dukes of Savoy, founded in the 11th Century. Stroll through the pretty cobbled streets in the fresh Alpine air, soak up the atmosphere at the lively Place St-Leger and don’t miss the quirky Elephant Fountain.

About France

You can also visit the Saint François de Sales Cathedral which houses the widest trompe-l’oeil painted surface in Europe. If you wish to learn more about the history of Savoie, discover the Savoisien Museum located in the former Franciscan convent. The abundant gastronomy of Savoie offers among others the famous cheese fondue.

Above all, Chambery is one of the best ways for reaching the Alps mountains by train.

    uneventful |
    "The train ran on time and without issues. I was running late so didn't have time to get to first class cabin on the outside, and I wasn't about to lug my ski gear through the train (and wasn't sure which cabin it was on since seats were unallocated for some reason). Second class was absolutely fine though and even managed to find a power socket at one of the tables. "
