2 months Europe by car - itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

Hi all, my partner and I are travelling around Europe for 60 days in a lease car.

A little background on us: we are mid 20's, love walks, adventures and beaches. We are not so much into the nightclub and cafe scene. We are into museums, history and experiencing the local culture.

We are from New Zealand (me) and Australia (her). We are moving to London, and this is our holiday trip before finding work. We are on a tight budget.

Our transport/accommodation: we have a Citroen C3 for 60 days, which is picked up from Paris in approximately 2 weeks time. We have four days in Paris before picking up the car. We will be purchasing camping gear from Decathlon in Paris, and plan to camp our way around Europe. We will occasionally sleep in a backpackers.

We have a rough plan of where we want to go. Because we have the car, we are flexible in terms of when and where we will visit. For big cities we will park in outer areas and catch public transport in.

The rough plan is this:
Paris
Bordeaux
Bilboa
Barcelona
Montpellier
Toulon
Monaco
Florance
Rome
Venice
Zurich
Frankfurt
Luxembourg
Paris (return car - end trip)

As I say, this is a very rough guide - there will no doubt be many stops along the way which are not listed above. To us, it seems realistic in terms of not trying to cover too much ground in one trip. We would like to stay a few days in places we like along the way.

Questions
1) General advice on driving in Europe
2) Advice on finding / selecting campgrounds
3) What are your 'must see' stops in along this route
4) Your opinion of the vague itinerary?

We have a 'rough guide' to Europe to assist us along the way too. However, your time and feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards, Joseph.
