Driving Tours of France
By:Ana Cassis

Driving is one of the best ways to explore the countryside and small villages of France since there is no national bus service that can be used to travel from city to city. Most car rental agencies in France offer diesel engine cars, which consume up to about half as much fuel as gasoline cars. This makes the whole journey more affordable and earth-friendly. Driving along small country roads proves rewarding, with breathtaking views of lavender and sunflower fields.
