The French city of Carcassonne is split into two parts. It is most famous for its UNESCO World Heritage Site walled city, known as Cité de Carcassonne, which has a rich 25 year history. Its 3km of walls and 52 towers have been used in Hollywood films, and are available for you to explore. The city also boasts the town centre, or ville basse, which contains the rest of the city's hotels, bars, restaurants and entertainment. Hiring a car in Carcassonne allows you to easily explore the many sites in this medieval city easily and quickly.
Despite its small size, La Cité still offers plenty for visitors to do. If culture and religion is your thing, then Carcassonne is the place for you. Head to Place de l'Eglise to see The Basilica of Saint-Nazaire. Filled with stunning stained glass, its interior and exterior carvings are something that cannot be missed. Many tours run throughout La Cité, the Castle and ramparts tour is available in different languages if you'd like to find out the history behind this fortified city.

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.
