Roll down the windows, turn up the volume and buckle-up for 10 of the best road trips Europe has to offer. Vamos!
1. Lake District – North England
A National Park, Cumbria’s acclaimed Lake District encompasses some of England’s very best scenery. Quaint settlements, still, blue lakes and fertile farmland dot the pristine countryside, where over 23 million day-visitors flock annually.
Bring a picnic, cycle or stroll and swoon over the picturesque towns of Keswick, Windermere and Ambleside.
2. Amalfi Coast – Italy
Italy’s rugged coastline of medieval cliff-side fishing villages, lemon groves and agriturismos have made Campania’s famed Amalfi Coast one of the world’s most beloved road trips. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its breathtaking Mediterranean landscapes, the drive is as challenging as it is rewarding, with two-lane winding mountain roads and plenty of blind turns.
Start in Salerno, meandering through Ravello, Amalfi, Positano, Minori & Maiori, and the island of Capri, before finishing up in Sorrento.
