Hertz offers car hire services in Bergerac allowing you to explore this beautiful modern city which is steeped in a long history. It centres on its old river port where rows of medieval half-timbered houses that lean over narrow alleyways, such as in Saint-Clar Street, vie for attention with the elegant 17th-century houses in places like the Rue l’Ancien-Pont. Swans on the Dordogne river, parterres of lagerstroemia flowers dotted around its squares, including the city’s largest square the Pélissière Place, and numerous little shops that draw the innocent visitor inside with ease, all add to its charm.
Home to interesting museums, such as the Musée du Tabac and the Maison des Vins, tourist attractions like the statues of Cyrano de Bergerac, the hero of Edmond Rostand’s famous comedy, and plenty of street markets buzzing with activity. Then, of course, there are Bergerac’s restaurants, which come to life in the evenings. It is possible to enjoy the finest truffles or wild boar with one of Bergerac’s world famous wines, including its Monbazillac and Côtes de Bergerac.
