If you’re planning the best road trip on holiday all you need a little time and your sense of adventure. Europe is the destination for driving enthusiasts all over the world. With a huge variety of choice and some truly breath-taking scenery on offer.
Travel to Porto to discover the coast of Portugal and don’t miss Aveiro, (Venice in Portugal), then head towards Coimbra and admire one of the oldest universities in Europe. Drive along the coast, stop in Leiria and visit the fortress of Peniche on the coast. Stop in Sintra before getting to Lisbon and discover its magnificent castles and two very nice seaside resorts: Estoril and Cascais.
Keep on driving along the coast to Setubal down to the Algarve. It is one of the most beautiful regions in Portugal. Discover Lagos, Portimao, Albufeira and treat yourself to a few days’ rests in Algarve.
More than 300 kilometres romantic landscapes are awaiting you. Drive to Füssen, the starting point for this romantic road. Head to Wurtzburg via magnificent romantic villages such as Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Augsburg, Landsberg and Nördlingen. Visit Bavaria too for a perfect road trip in Germany.
Tuscany is one of the most famous and beautiful regions of Italy, for a good reason. Whether you have been to Italy multiple times or this is your first visit, the Tuscany region will take your breath away. From cute ancient cities to rolling fields of green, Tuscany as something to offer everyone.
Tuscany is crossed by roads (‘Via’) built during the Roman times and connecting the most important areas. This road trip will go through parts of Via Francigena, an ancient road and pilgrim route starting in Canterbury and ending in Rome. You’ll probably notice various signposts along the way.
The sun, sea, beautiful beaches are awaiting you ! You can leave from Barcelona and drive along the coast through Tossa de Mar, Palamos, Rosas, Cadaques and back to Barcelona through Besalu and Girona. You will make an unforgettable holiday road trip in Spain.
Your Spain self-drive begins into the beautiful Spanish countryside. The rolling hills of Tarragona, anchored by a port city with the same name, are home to a variety of medieval jewels and picturesque vineyards. You’d never be able to explore these provincial villages on a group tour, so make the most of your wheels and don’t miss a thing! Continue on to vibrant Valencia, whose own culinary traditions have found its place in history and on the itineraries for more than a few Spain trips, before ending your journey in lively Alicante.
There’s something magical in driving through its ever-changing landscape and climates and, if you fall in love with one of the country’s many picturesque towns and villages, there is the freedom to simply stop and explore.
Head west of Bordeaux and you’ll reach the Atlantic Coast. Here, in the Landes de Gascogne Regional Natural Park, the beaches will be some of the most impressive you’ve seen with white sands that seem to go on for miles and unspoiled views of wild grasses. Start at the attractive town of Arcachon, which lies on Arcachon Bay, and head south towards the Spanish border. Along the way, stop at the incredible Dune du Pilat – Europe’s tallest sand dune – and Biarritz, the surfing capital of France. Take your time, find hidden beach spots, enjoy the slower pace of life and, of course, indulge in great seafood.
