Quimper, a town in the north-western region of Brittany, France, has a rich history for you to explore. Once a Gallo-Roman town, its cathedral is a stunning example of 13th Century Gothic architecture built on top of an old Roman Cathedral.
The town walls, of which only 40% remain, are an ancient reminder of the struggles the town faced in protecting itself from invaders. Now visitors can take a trip back in time by wandering the walls and seeing exactly what challenges both the invaders and residents had in trying to take over and protect it.
The cathedral is one of many sites that would-be visitors should visit, with its various museums also housing fascinating collections. Those heading to the town in July can attend the Cornouaille Quimper Festival, which brings all Breton culture into one place. Mixing dancers, musicians and street entertainers into one fun festival, it is ideal for the whole family.
Quimper has a whole range of museums for you to wander around. Hire a car in Quimper and head to The Breton Museum. Housed in the Palace of the former Bishop of Cornouaille, it holds relics from the region's past. The Fine Arts Museum is another excellent place to visit, showcasing works from both the Northern School and the Italian school of thought. Hiring a car from Quimper will also allow you to explore further into France, whether your preferred destination is the beauty of the French countryside or the city of love, Paris.

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.
