Route Planning in Europe
There are many beautiful cities and locations throughout Europe that are wonderful places to visit on route. A driving holiday in Europe is a perfect way to take the opportunity to visit some of these places and spend a night or two. If you are going to drive to the South of France for example you could visit Paris for an overnight stay or if you prefer to get further south then Orleons is approximately half way to the Mediterranean coast and still leaves the option to head off to the west coast and Bordeaux.
