What's so great about self-driving is that lets you stop at small villages, drive along coastal roads or via windy mountain passes, and explore some of the most captivating corners of the continent at your own pace.
To help you out, I put together these 7 best European road trips ideas…
Transfăgărășan Pass, Romania
Forget any preconceived notions you may have about Romania. Take it from me: Romania is bound to exceed your expectations. It's safe, it's charming, and it's simply unmissable.
It's also an incredible part of Europe to drive through, especially the Transylvania region with its fairytale Medieval towns and castles that inspired Dracula.
White towns of Andalucia, Spain
Spain's southern region of Andalucia is arguably most famous for its stunning historical cities, such as Seville, Córdoba, and Granada. Thanks to Spain's efficient rail network, you can easily see these on a city-hopping trip. But… that also means missing everything between these cities!
Coastal Croatia & Montenegro
Blessed with a coastline stretching over 500km (300 miles), Croatia is simply made for a coastal road trip. Start in the capital Zagreb, then take a tunnel through the Velebit mountain range, emerging on the shimmering Adriatic coast dotted with small islands.
Bridges and ferries can take you to some of the Adriatic islands, like the delightfully vowel-less Krk.by Author
