Well known around the world for hosting the famous 24 hour Grand Prix, Le Mans is a city with a deep history and many great attractions which are often overshadowed by motorsport events. While for a few days a year the city does get taken over by racing enthusiasts, a visit here during the rest of the year is highly recommended and quickly growing popular with travellers.
Centrally located between Paris, Nantes, Caen, Rennes and Tours, Le Mans is the perfect city to base yourself while exploring France with your rental car. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car hire in Le Mans is both easy and economical, and if you are flying into Charles De Gaulle Airport you can collect your car hire in Paris and make your own way over.
The most famous attraction in Le Mans is without a doubt the Cathedral of St Julien, which dates back to the 11th century. To visit the cathedral, drive your rental car into the part of the city known as "Old Town", a well-preserved area of renaissance style houses and cobbled streets and cafes. Regarded as one of the largest and most valued cathedrals in France, visitors here will find amazing stained glass windows, tapestries, fresco paintings and detailed gothic style carvings which have been preserved in excellent condition.
To see another of Le Mans' famous historical icons, jump in your hire car and head south-east from here to Epau Abbey, located just outside the city. Set on a peaceful rural property by the Huisne River, the abbey was restored to its former glory over a period of 30 years and is a superb example of a Cistercian Abbey. For a day of fun with the kids, drive your rental car east of here to Papea City, a wild west themed amusement park, perfect for breaking the routine of visiting historical sites and keeping the whole family happy.
