If your trip to Saint-Etienne is all organized but your itinerary is looking a little empty, let us give you a few hints and tips.
Stade Geoffroy-Guichard and Musee des Beaux-Arts are some notable attractions that everybody should make time to swing by. Plan a route and spend a couple of hours exploring each one.
Plan a stop at Cathedral of Saint Charles Borromeo. It's one attraction you'll usually find on many visitors' must-do lists. Musée d’Art Moderne and Museum of Modern Art are also nearby and worth checking out.
Rack up a few more miles on your odometer and head 25 miles to Vienne. Temple d'Auguste et de Livie is just one of the interesting attractions to swing by. Theatre Antique is also a popular attraction.
If you're here to attend a conference, you'll find Cite du Design 1 mile away. When you get a break, head to a nearby restaurant to snatch a moment to yourself — socializing and networking can be draining.
Here are our top tips on how to get behind the wheel of a rental car with some savings in your pocket:
Saint-Etienne is big. You could spend a week here and not get bored. To experience as much as you can in this dynamic metropolis, a rental car is a must. Bear in mind that driving in big cities usually goes hand in hand with tight streets and even tighter parking spots. Don't worry though, because a small, economical car will make this much easier to manage. If you can't wait to head out of the city and cruise around some of the mountains that Saint-Etienne is well known for, you may prefer a car with a little more power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will suit your needs.
You'll be happy to hear that there's a broad range of luxurious rental vehicles on offer in Saint-Etienne. What you go for will depend on how much you want to spend and what you're hoping to do. Specialty vehicles are all about mod cons and comfort. If you're splurging, why not go for an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a slick medium-sized sedan? On the other hand, if you're just after a car to zip around town in as economically as possible, stick with an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won't break the bank).
