On the way you can visit Luxembourg City which houses many medieval castles as well as roman styled baths that are surrounded by beautiful Bascillas. Next you get to visit the quaint city of Heidelberg which will provide with the feeling of a small town like never before. And the last point of this trip is Berlin which has a lot of attractions for tourists. And if you're a football fan then don't forgot to go for a tour of the Olympistadion and preferably while a match is being held there to get the true football experience.

2. From Bucharest to Bratislava

Travel to Bucharest and then start your trip from this Romanian capital to the Capital of Vienna. Choose your own route and discover the delights hidden in the cities of Transylvania ( which is home to Bran Castle - the place that marks the beginning of the concept of Counts and Draculas) and then travel towards the Hungarian city of Budapest which is also housing many delights of its own (Széchenyi thermal baths). And then conclude your trip by visiting Vienna where you get to explore amazing Austrian architecture.

3. From London to Edinburgh

Start your trip at the capital of United Kingdom and travel all the way to highlands ending your trip in Edinburgh. On the way you get to explore many cities in England such as Bristol, Leeds and Glasgow. All of these places have their own list of attractions that you need to see such as Holyrood Park in Edinburgh, the local pubs of Glasgow and the London Eye in London.

These routes for road trips are just suggestions and you can change them and add more places as you go. A road trip is something you should try at least once in your life and we urge you to go on this right in the summers. So get cheap airline tickets online and start your road trip today.

On Sundays, the Pope makes his weekly appearance and tours of the Vatican Gardens are available if arranged in advance.
