Plan Your Ultimate European Road Trip

In this blog post, we list a few places we think you should go to on your ultimate European road trip.

You can never do too much travelling in your life. Travelling gives you the opportunity to get to know new people and cultures and to create new, wonderful memories for life. A road trip is a fantastic way of travelling – you have great flexibility and you have the freedom to spontaneously choose whenever and wherever you want to go. Not to mention you can create a playlist of your favourite songs and sing along loud in the car!

If you start your road trip from Malta, the easiest way is to take the ferry to Italy from here. Drive along the coast and make some stops on the way to enjoy the beaches, until you arrive in Tuscany, Florence. Make a trip to the vineyards and go on a wine tasting!

French Riviera and Monaco, France
