Besancon may not have the reputation of some of the other French cities, but as the capital of the Franche-Comte region it deserves its place as one of the country’s most prominent towns. Situated in the east of France and very near the Swiss border, the city has a kind of transnational cosmopolitan character, allied with a historic city centre and very modern amenities. The famous Besancon Citadel is the first port of call for many tourists. If you take up car hire in Besancon, Geneva Airport is just under 180km drive away and allows you to make the most of your trip. Hiring a car in Besancon is available at Besancon Railway station, Dole Airport and Geneva Airport amongst others.
