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!
