Vienne Guide

Vienne

Vienne is located 30 miles (50kms) south of Lyon, on the Rhône River's left bank. With a recorded history dating back to the 3rd century, the city was once home to Roman emperors. Eventually Vienne became a part of the Burgundy kingdom and during this time Christianity flourished, with monasteries and churches constructed on the banks of the Rhône.

On a walking tour of the centre, it's easy to see the Roman influence. France's second-largest Roman theatre is here, and now hosts an annual jazz festival. There's also a temple to Augustus and Roman ruins at Cybele Garden. You can see across the Rhône at this point to one of France's largest Gallo-Roman archaeological sites: Saint-Romain-en-Gal.

There are numerous churches in and around the city, and a cathedral. Saint-André-le-Bas was once home to a cloistered abbey dating back to the 12th century. For the best views of the city and the Rhône, head to the top of Le Mont Pipet. This is one of five hills that surround the city. North of Le Mont Pipet is Mount Soloman, another of the hills, where you'll find the ruins of Chateau La Bâtie.

The city is relatively compact and walking to and from the attractions is possible. Local buses provide transport in and around the city as well. However, in order to explore the hills surrounding Vienne and other towns on the Rhône it's best to hire a car. It's recommended that you arrange for your rental car by booking online before you leave home.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
