On Gocarhire.co.uk, you can comfortably compare and evaluate how much money each car hire agency asks. And, wonderfully, you can reserve the car you like from your place. Still, I see you are asking “Why should I get a hire car, at all?” Oh my! Isn’t it much better to travel around without having to worry about the taxicab’s taximeter, public transportation delays, or frighteningly tangled tube lines? (Yes, I agree the Metro is very well spread in Paris, but for each commutation you may have some three or four changes to do.) We are talking about situations that may cause trouble and annoying time wastes: who wants to lose precious time that can be devoted to sightseeing in this astonishing city? That is why in Gare de Lyon train station you will find plenty of car hire agencies, among which there are Avis, Europcar, Sixt, Budget, Citer and Firefly. Truth be told, the only thing you have got to do is choose your trip schedule. You can reserve a rental car with Gocarhire.co.uk in a matter of seconds.

What to do in Paris – Gare de Lyon

Built in 1990 for the Universal Exposition, Gare de Lyon is perhaps the best known station in Paris. It was named, of course, after the city of Lyon, which is the most frequent arrival city of trains in this station. It is nowadays considered an outstanding example of contemporary art. But, incidentally, it is also a very good starting spot to explore Paris, since it is well linked and quite close to many valuable Parisian sights. A mention of the Bastille quarter is essential and the wonderful Place des Vosges, a square known for its vastly rich attendees and now blossoming with ateliers. Take your car and watch an artist at work there, or choose to breathe the true Parisian atmosphere by paying a visit to Belleville and Montmartre. You will feel like you are the main character of a movie.

Must­see

  • Montmartre

  • The beautiful “Marais” quarter

  • The Louvre museum

Driving near Paris – Gare de Lyon

Once you leave the station by hire car, it will be easy to reach some of the fun touristhot spots nearby. The two obvious suggestions are the immense Palace of Versailles and Disneyland Paris – to be visited with your own kids. These are two must­not­miss places that are, unfortunately, too far to reach without a car. However, if you happen to be in Paris for work, you will perhaps need to take a look at “La Dèfense, the ultra­modern financial quarter which lures an increasing number of visitors every day. To reach it from Gare de Lyon you just need to... keep going! The shortest way cuts Paris in half: if you look at the map, it’s at first Rue de Rivoli and, after the Champs­Elyseés, it becomes Avenue Charles de Gaulle.
