BEST driving roads in Europe:
Road trips are not necessarily a go-to summer holiday activity – it can be much easier to laze on a beach or enjoy the hotel pool. But driving can afford you unique vistas of breathtaking scenery and let you explore regions you’d never easily get to on foot.
Road trips might seem like something that only happens in movies or across the USA, but Europe is actually home to numerous incredible driving routes – and you might already be spending your summer holiday much closer to a world-famous highway than you think.
Motoring experts from car leasing company LeaseCar.uk have researched ten of the most scenic routes across Europe to inspire drivers to explore more of the world this summer.
These routes range from remote old military roads in Scotland and famous cycling routes in the Pyrenees to tunnels covered by waterfalls in Romania and views of fairytale castles in Germany.
“There’s really nothing better than jumping into the car, winding down all the windows, putting on your favorite music and cruising along miles and miles of open road on a bright, sunny day,” a spokesperson for LeaseCar.uk said.
“This is an experience that can be enjoyed in our own country, of course, but we must admit it’s made all the more special in certain places abroad where the roads are complemented by breathtaking – and often unusual – scenery.
