Although driving in Paris can be a little challenging at times, it is still a fun and convenient means of exploration. Compare cheap car hire in Paris here for the best self-drive rental deals.Why visit
Paris has traditionally been a draw for tourists and lovers thanks to its eclectic mix of entertainment venues, restaurants, museums and heritage buildings. An evening at the legendary Moulin Rouge, walking the historic streets of the Left Bank and the Latin Quarter, and visiting the Louvre Museum are highlights of any Paris trip. The Metro is an easy option for reaching city centre draws, yet car rental in Paris is far better for travelling to the more distant palaces, parks and forests in this area of France.Transport
Paris has excellent public transportation links, boasting two major airports and six mainline railway terminals. Paris Orly Airport handles the bulk of the city's European flight arrivals and is on the RER suburban train network. Within the city, the metro and the Velib bicycle sharing scheme are among transport options. Many renowned companies also provide self-drive hire vehicles in the city, great for motorists wishing to travel farther afield.What to see and do
The Palace of Versailles, located just 20kms from the city centre, is one of France's most iconic sites. It is easily reached using Paris car hire. Fontainebleau Palace and its adjacent forest make for another great daytrip, which could be combined with a visit to Orleans, where museums, St Croix Cathedral and the Joan of Arc statue are among the unique draws. Orleans is also the ideal base for visiting Loire Valley stately homes, such as the Chateau de Chambord.
