With so much to see in the romantic city of Paris and the Île-de-France region, car rental is your best option for discovering this magical area. After arranging car rental at the airport, your Parisienne adventure can truly begin. Perhaps you could start with a drive along the magnificent Champs Elysees?
Where car rental comes into its own is exploring the wider region outside Paris. We suggest a car rental trip to the majestic Palace of Versailles, one time home of the French nobility and Royal Court. When the Palace was first built in the mid 17th century, Versailles itself was no more than a small village, and has since become a wealthy suburb of the French Capital. Car rental is essential for reaching this famous architectural wonder, and will provide a highlight to any holiday in Paris.
Car rental is also required for a trip out to Disneyland® Resort Paris. Offering entertainment for all members of the family, Disneyland® Resort Paris is only 20 miles outside the Capital, and is easily accessible from its airports. Situated in the new town of Marne-la-Vallée, the famous resort features two theme parks, an entertainment district and seven hotels.
The countryside around Paris inspired the Impressionist art movement, and you can see why with a car rental tour to experience this beauty for yourself. There are many other attractions to explore in this idyllic landscape, such as the Malmaison Palace from the Napoleonic era, and the gardens of the former Marly-le-Roi Chateau.
If you’re interested in French history, Paris car rental is also needed for trips out to the various museums in the suburbs, such as the fine collections at Chatou and Auvers-sur-Oise. You also shouldn’t miss the fabulous gothic basilica at St-Denis.
