The city of Sion is the capital of the Swiss canton of Valais and is often referred to as the most 'sun blessed' city in Switzerland. Sion is instantly recognisable by the high towers of the Castle of Valeria and Castle Tourbillon. Hiring a car in Sion lets you travel to the Barrage de la Grande Dixence, a 285m high dam which takes 45 minutes to hike to the top of. There is also the opportunity to take the cable car ride if you don't fancy the walk.
The International Music Festival of Sion Valais has been running for more than 40 years and hiring a car in Sion means that you won't miss out. The festival is a must visit if you are in the city between August and September. It features a series of 11 concerts that you can attend showcasing top artists. Discover the varied history of the city by visiting the Valais History Museum where 50,000 years of history comes together. You can view Roman antiques and medieval sculptures that are housed in a restored medieval castle

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.
