London, UK (PRWeb UK) August 6, 2009
A popular choice for romantics, the city of love and lights attracts not only those looking for romance, but also serious shoppers, artists and writers. A visit to the city is a must for anyone wishing to experience the best of both contemporary and age old European culture. And it's also only 257 miles from London, so not too far for a first time road trip. Most car insurance providers will cover you in France, but to be certain Endsleigh advises you to get in touch with you insurance provider to double check.
Cobbled Berlin streets dating back 750 years play host to the hippest nightclubs, which in turn jostle for space and attention with opera houses, concert halls, theatres, museums and so much more. A less easy drive though - 717 miles, but well worth taking in the sights along the way.
Said to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Prague offers visitors a wealth of Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance buildings. Don't miss out on the art and poetry either, and try some of the famous Czech beers. A hefty 769 mile drive from London, it's better to make a long holiday of this one, enjoying the most scenic roads and the most interesting stopovers along the way.
Barcelona offers road trippers not only a great drive - although at 959 miles, it could take a little while - but also a fabulous city break, filled with art, museums, football and of course the great works of Antonio Gaudi. Enjoy the summer warmth at an outdoor café, or take in the sights on an open top bus tour.
In comparison to Barcelona, Amsterdam is a mere 310 miles from London and since it is so often billed as the "Gateway to Europe", it's the perfect summer holiday road trip destination for first time roadtrippers. Whether it's the works of Van Gough and Rembrandt or the world-famous coffee shops that attract you to the city, visitors are bound to find an experience to suit every taste.
A word to the wise - when contemplating a road trip, make sure you have enough cash to last the trip, that you know your route and that your car insurance has you covered for the duration of the trip. When looking for cover while in Europe, don't just pick the cheap car insurance options - rather take into account the quality of the cover and then make your choice.
