As equally beautiful as it is cultural, Avignon is a thriving hub of history, architecture and arts. Described by many as the 'perfect break', the city offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy a mix of activities in an unforgettable medieval setting. The ancient town centre is built inside the city's historic rampart walls. Avignon is one of the only French cities to have preserved these magnificent walls, and is the reason why the city landscape looks so unique. The city spans across the Rhône river bank, and is the largest city capital of the département of Vaucluse. Hiring a car in Avignon means you can travel the full distance of this incredible city, admiring its picturesque views and cultural heritage.
Avignon is the perfect destination for a romantic weekend break. The city is not heavily populated, so it's ideal if you're looking to relax in one of its many tranquil parks and gardens. One of the most beautiful gardens in the city is Rocher des Doms. Here you can witness the breath-taking views of the Rhône valley while snuggling up on a bench in one of the many secreted areas of the park. Rent a car in Avignon and venture further out of the city. Visit one of the many restaurants and cafés in Place de l'Horloge; you can do some people watching, sit outside one of the many brasserie terraces, and listen to the chimes of the clock tower in the square.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
