Taking a road trip through Europe is a very exciting adventure because you get to travel to different countries and experience different cultures while taking in the sights. Since there are so many great places to visit, we decided to make it easier on you by narrowing down the list to the top five places to visit, which we listed below.
Since you will be traveling through multiple countries, remember to pack your passport and even more importantly, make sure you have new car tyres to avoid getting stranded in the middle of the road.
5. Zagreb, Croatia
Zagreb is one of the most beautiful places to visit because the country has so much to offer, like beautiful national parks and waterfalls. Driving through the country is the best way to see it because you can travel through the rural areas, take a quick dip in Lake Krka, or take a boat trip to any of the small islands.
If you are a fan of the television show “Game of Thrones,” you can travel west towards the coastline to make a stop at Dubrovnik and visit the site used as King’s Landing on the show.
If you are a fan of driving in winter conditions, this is a road trip you have to make. You can start out in Sweden, driving through the country side blanketed in snow. From Stockholm, you can continue driving through the Baltic coast and if you are there during the middle of winter, you will be able to see the north side of the Baltic Sea frozen.
If you are looking for some more winter excitement, you can continue driving until you get to Norway
3. NC500, Scotland
When it comes to road trips, it is hard to beat the natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands. You can travel to Inverness and see some great beaches and if you are thirsty, you can make a stop at one of the Whiskey Distilleries you will pass by during the drive.
Since it is Scotland, there will be a few castles to check out as well.
2. Italian Lakes, Italy
If you are driving through Italy, you have to visit Lake Garda, which is the largest Italian Lake. You should also stop by any of the ancient Italian piazzas, as well as the villages. If you are staying in town for a while, it is also recommended that you take a trip in one of the rental boats, especially in the summer.
1. Northern Spain
The south of Spain gets most of the tourists, but the northern parts of the country are just as beautiful. The Asturias and the Cantabria parts of Spain offer a lot of great scenery, giving you a lot to look at during the trip.
If you drive through Comillas, be sure to check out the Capricho de Gaudí building, which is one of three designed by Gaudi that weren’t built in Barcelona.
