Paris, the capital of France, has many famous landmarks. The Eiffel Tower can't be missed as it can be seen throughout the city. For many visitors a trip up the Tower is a must do, if only for a photo at the top. Once you've ticked this off your list, take your pick from the many art galleries. For modern art lovers, the Pompidou Centre is the place to go. For those who love the impressionists, the Musée d'Orsay will delight you with it's many priceless paintings and, for people who appreciate the classical style, the Louvre needs no introduction. Save on city-centre car parking by reserving a bargain parking pass for your hire car at the Beaubourg Pompidou Centre. After tramping round the art galleries, take some time to sit and watch the world go by from a street café, for which France is justifiably famous.
Nice is on the Mediterranean Coast, in the south of France. The French Riviera has long been a magnet for holiday makers. After the scenic drive down from Paris in your hire car, you may be in need of some fresh air and relaxation. The beaches can be rather pebbly but they are still a great place to stop off and top up your tan. Once you are ready for some more sightseeing, the Matisse Museum showcases the work of this celebrated artist and is well worth a visit. Car hire also means that you can drive along the coast and imagine you are a millionaire driving to your yacht for a cruise around the Med.
Marseille is France's second largest city and also its oldest - over 2,600 years old. It should be easy to reach in your hire car, as three motorways meet here, making it an ideal base to explore the Provencal region. The European Capital of Culture in 2013, there are plenty of places to visit in the city itself, notably the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisation.
Beginning in the north of France, an impressive region to visit would be Bretagne (Brittany), proud of both its rugged natural beauty and individual charm. After inhaling the invigorating Atlantic breeze off the coast of France, hit the road and snake south, you will come across Bordeaux and Toulouse with their aroma of lavender and rosemary. Head south-west with the hire car to Aix-en-Provence and witness this timeless quaint Roman town peering onto the peaceful River Arc, both seamlessly trapped in time, preserving the rustic feel of the settlement. France is shoulder to shoulder with the world’s second smallest country, Monaco, so pop over and live it up with the glitz and glamour of Monte Carlo and its extravagantly endowed harbour. Finally, move north from the coast and wind your way through The Alps, which are simply awe-inspiring, particularly with clear skies when it is possible to see all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.
