Where to go by car in France
Paris is the city of romance, with culture, museums and beautiful architecture, not to mention the Eiffel Tower lighting up over the city at night.
With your rental car, you can savour the romance of driving through old winding streets, parade down the Champs–Élysées or get out of the city for a day trip in the countryside in the Ile-de-France.
There is almost nowhere you can go in central France that does not take you through wine country.
Endless vineyards are at your disposal with your own car.
Nearby French farmhouse-style guesthouses allow you to sample the wine and fine cuisine in many regions, including the famous Bordeaux and Champagne varieties, and perhaps stay overnight if you’d like to enjoy enjoy a few more glasses!
Southwestern France is home to the French Alps. Catch a glimpse of Mont Blanc and indulge in some skiing.
Lounging on the beach more your style?
