If you’re looking for places to travel this summer, we’ve roped in the good folks at WeRoad to compile a handy list of must-visit European destinations. Passports at the ready:

What to Do: Take a road trip with your fellow travellers and spend every day witnessing the Country’s changing landscapes, exploring and experiencing the ultimate “Icelanding” spirit of nature!

The Lowdown: Witness the Bucolic views of the Tuscan countryside, with a glass of wine in your hand and new friends crowded around a table full of colourful, traditional Italian delicacies. Italy has so much more to offer than the food and wine it is best known for and you can discover it all with WeRoad. This diverse country is filled with strong regional identities, dialects, traditions and food, all linked by indefinable thing that we call ‘italianità’, being Italian. It’s something that you can only experience and feel, by wandering in the street markets in Naples, with people screaming and inviting you to see how fresh their fish is, or by having an arancino in Sicily, while passing by the baroque’s buildings that make Palermo so unique, or even by sailing through the Arcipelago de La Maddalena, in Sardinia, described by many as ‘heaven on earth’.
What to Do: Veneto rests in the north-eastern Italian region stretching from the Magnificent “pale mountains” also known as The Dolomites to the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic sea. Discover the rolling hilltops, ethereal mountainsides and break taking coastlines as you enjoy the rich culture of this historic region dating back to the Middle Ages. The tour centres around the beauty of the Dolomites landscapes and traditions, sample the delicious delicacies of the region and indulge in a glass or two of prosecco. Adventure is second nature on this tour, whether you’re taking in historic castles, hiking the mountain peaks or swimming in the Italian lakes, this tour welcomes culinary tradition, learning art and culture whilst surrounded with great company and creating lifelong memories.

The Lowdown: Travelling the beautiful Algarve’s rugged coastline and gazing on the dozens of shades of the ocean, we’ll be asking ourselves many times if we are actually road tripping in Orange County instead of the European coast. We’ll be “going south” from Lisbon to Sines, before continuing through Lagos and Albufeira: get ready for golden hour cold beers, with a side of laughter, kayaking, and the craziest car rides you’ve ever head with the best fellow travellers ever!
What to Do: On this trip, we’ll see the true soul of Portugal in an on-the-road tour where the new and the old meet in a fascinating way. Portugal is the perfect country for a breath-taking group tour and its numerous historical, artistic and scenic beauties spread over 830 km of coastline will take your breath away.
