The citadel, a magnificent example of 17th century military architecture (designed by Vauban) is a UNESCO world heritage site, and it contains a number of museums, such as the folk museum, the museum of the Resistance and a zoo. Rent a car in Saint Claude and Lac de l'Abbaye is only a 30-minute drive away, and is charming year-round.

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.
