This is also one of the best ways to view a continent just the way you want. In order to make it easier to plan a journey, we’ve prepared top 5 scenic driving routes passing through different European countries.



It is also worth saying a few words about the preparation for a road trip, as it depends on how well your journey will pass. The most crucial point, in addition to getting the required visa, is to properly prepare your vehicle. Being in an unknown country, car repair can cost you a pretty penny. Therefore, do not hesitate to visit the service station before the trip to make a complete car diagnosis of the vehicle and ask for auto electrical services in order to make sure your car is ready for a long trip. Specialists can check if the electrics, gauges, tire pressure, and overall engine condition are in good working order. Well now, let’s move on to the most exciting part of the trip, namely the choice of destinations and routes.

It is also important to mention that Ireland is a fantastic location for amazing road trips with many amazing day tours in Ireland to explore as you travel around the beautiful emerald Isle.


  1. Route through Poland, Austria and Germany

The starting point of the route is the Polish city of Lublin, followed by Krakow in the south of Poland. The journey continues to the city of Vienna, which is the capital of Austria, and then crosses the border into Germany via the small town of Munich. Here you can stop for a short rest and walk through the old German city. The next point of the trip is Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. The journey ends up in Poland, but now in its capital, Warsaw. In this way, if you stay in each city for one day, your car journey would take a week, and the total length of the route is 2300 km.


  1. Traveling across France to Spain

The starting point of this route is Lyon, the ancient city of France, which is home to the legendary amphitheater of the Three Gali, constructed more than 2,100 years ago. Thereafter, the road winds its way through all of western France. On the way you can visit the city of Bordeaux and Biarritz. In Spain, however, the trip goes to the city of Bilbao, then on to Navarre, a Spanish province with dense forests, ancient castles and cathedrals. The trip reaches its end upon arrival in Barcelona, though it would be difficult to spend less than three days there, so you’d better plan a several day stay in Barcelona.


  1. Road trip from Austria to Italy

We suggest that you begin your journey from Austria, Vienna, and along the way visit cities such as Salzburg, Innsbruck, and the province of Carinthia. The architecture of the country and the hilly roads will not leave you bored. Further south of Europe in Italy, and if you make a trip in a warm season of the year you can combine a tour around Europe with a vacation at the seaside. Move from east to west for the best sea views. By the way, between the Italian cities of Sorrento and Salerno in southwestern part of the country, lies one of the most romantic routes in the world.


Even with the most careful travel planning, it is worth leaving room for some spontaneity. The advantage of traveling by car is that you can stop wherever you want and for as long as you wish, as well as change your route whenever new ideas arise. Enjoy your journey!
