If you’re looking to experience multiple cultures in one trip, Europe is the ultimate road trip destination, brimming with iconic landmarks and stories to tell in every city. In our experience (over 50 years of it!), it’s the journey that brings to life the uniqueness and beauty of this great continent, moulded by centuries of history and modernisation. A road trip through France is a must, from the Eiffel Tower, through the Beaujolais vineyards, to Contiki’s very own chateaux and cruising along the sparkling blue shoreline of the French Riviera - on a European road trip you will discover the true meaning of ‘carpe diem’. Foodies and history buffs will fall in love with Italy, walking in the footsteps of gladiators at the Colosseum, winding through the hills of Tuscany with green and yellow lemon trees scattering the horizon and setting sights on the picturesque canals of Venice. There will be no shortage of pizza and prosecco and make sure you treat yourself to an authentic gelato when you need cooling down!
If beer is your tipple of choice keep Munich on the map, home to the world’s biggest annual beer festival, Oktoberfest. Then road trip up through Germany to the stunningly beautiful Rhine Valley where you’ll take a lesson in crafting beer steins. Whichever route you choose to travel, be rewarded with spectacular coastal drives, snow-capped mountain passes and striking architecture. It’s the journey itself which reveals the landscape of a country, it’s produce and the way of life. It’s time on the road which gives you an opportunity to soak up knowledge from our incredible Trip Managers and fully appreciate the significance of every stop we make. Morning drives become filled with historical tales, amusing anecdotes and time to bond with your travel crew on our comfy Contiki coaches. We have trips across Eastern and Western Europe and everything in between, so pick your fav and take a seat - we’ll take care of the rest.
