Driving your own car or renting one will provide more comfort than a bus or plane. So, once you realize how great it can be it’s time to see what some of the top locations you should visit are. Everything you need will be in your vehicle so do your research before going on any trip.
Every Part of Italy
Italy is on top of the list when it comes to destinations where you can see a lot of things in a small area. Each city has a great history behind it and you will be able to reach most of the parts by car. There are some amazing winter destinations in Europe that you can visit before or after Italy.
The only problem might be the streets that are very narrow and you can easily scratch or damage your car if you poorly asses it. Salerno is usually the starting point on these trips which is on the west coast.
There’s something called Gold Circle also known as Ring Road which is a 230km route that will take you about 3 hours to pass without stopping. Even if there are plenty of destinations around the world like beautiful waterfalls, mountains, and valleys, Iceland has it all in one place.
Depending on where you live, it may be smarter to rent a vehicle but remember to get your international drivers license so you will be able to drive there.
