The historic town of Dignes-les-Bains is the capital of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region. This picturesque town is the primary centre of the lavender trade, but more notably, it's famous for featuring in Victor Hugo's renowned novel Les Misérables. In Roman times, the region was known for its hot springs, and still today, the town boasts relaxing thermal baths and a spa. Hire a car in Dignes-les-Bains and you can take a trip to the thermal baths and spa which sits on the Eaux-Chaudes River, only 3km from the town.
Digne-les-Bains is a town of great historical culture. Hire a car in Dignes les Bains and you can discover this for yourself by visiting the impressive Roman Catholic Digne Cathedral. It is also well-worth visiting the Alexandra David-Neel Museum, home of the famous explorer. The museum will guide you through the remarkable story of Alexandra, along with the opportunity to view the collection of artefacts from her life and travels across Asia, and Tibet in particular. Renting a car in Digne-les-Bains will give you the chance to visit this interesting museum along with other local museums across the town and region.

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.
