See the real Bastia Five minutes from Bastia is Cardo, a typical Corsican village. Hiring a car in Bastia allows you to get out of the city and explore with ease. Built high up, on a rocky outcrop, Cardo was already established by Middle Ages, and is still occupied today. The baroque-inspired church of San Stefano, built in 1835, contains a Gothic-style organ and 18th century paintings. Rent a car in Bastia to explore all day, and at night come back and enjoy tapas and Corsican specialities with a glass of rioja at Benta Ainhoa, run by two Basque couples, where live music is a regular feature

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.
