Aeroport Tarbes Lourdes Pyrenees
**(Calls cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge)
At the foot of the Pyrenees, the town of Tarbes is the second largest metropolitan area of the Midi-Pyrénées region. The town is close to the small market town of Lourdes, which is known for its Roman Catholic pilgrimages. Around 5 million people have been known to make the pilgrimage to the region every season.
Tarbes' main attraction is the Musée des Beaux-Arts, whilst the town is also a regular calling point of the Tour de France, due to its proximity to challenging mountain roads.
Many visitors to the region hire a car from Tarbes and visit some of the other towns and cities in the Pyrenees region. Toulouse, around 150km away, is the largest big city to Tarbes, whilst the city of Pau is around 40km away.
In Pau, you'll find a number of sights including the Château de Pau, a large castle that dominates its quarter of the city, and the Place Clemenceau, one of the central squares.
Sport is also big in Pau, with a well-known rugby team, a long motorsport heritage and continental Europe's oldest 18-hole golf course in the 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.
