Avignon is an ancient city in the south-east of France on the banks of the River Rhône – it used to be the seat of Papal power before Catholicism moved its base to the Vatican; the city retained one of the biggest Gothic palaces in Europe.
The region of Provence is famous for its cuisine, and it's highly recommended that you explore the various street markets as well as the many historical attractions that make Avignon's Old City a location recognised by UNESCO. Make sure you take advantage of car rental from Avignon if you want to indulge in some retail therapy or explore the streets that lay further afield.
Car hire from Avignon means that the Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, a picturesque town on the Côte d'Azur, and Luberon, a huge series of mountain ranges, are both within easy reach of the city. You can also explore the Camargue, a vast area of countryside sitting on a river delta that has wide lakes across the region.
Around forty minutes from Avignon by car is Les Baux-de-Provence - a town carved from the rock of a mountain and gave name to the mineral bauxite where it was first discovered.

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.
