Chambery, France

Chambery, once the capital of Savoie, is located in the heart of the French Alps, about 50km north of Grenoble, hence its great location for skiers and boarders. But what of the city itself, is it just a great transport hub or worth checking out in its own right?

What's in Chambery?

Chambery is a bustling little place full of cafes, bars and restaurants, it certainly seems to have benefited form its recent boom in visitors. Some of its lively feel is due to the large numbers of students based here, about 11,000 at the last count!

If you want to do some sightseeing then check out Chambery castle which used to be home to the Holy Shroud(later moved to Turin where it was renamed the Turin Shroud). You also have the gothic 13th century cathedral and a number of really good museums including some art  galleries housing some fine examples of Italian Renaissance artists.

Trains

Public transport links aren't brilliant from Chambery. As it's so close to the resorts we would recommend that you either hire a car or look at ski transfer providers. A number of private transfer companies operate from Chambery so if you don't want to drive we would recommend this route.
