Ideas for July in Europe with a Car

Jump to last reply

We will be in France and have a leased car during the summer. We are thinking about where to go from around July1-August 1. Originally we were thinking of a big "circle tour", Paris, Vienna, Budapest, Prague Berlin and back. But as many of you know, big cities aren't necessarily the best ones to visit with cars, and it would be a lot of driving. So now we are kind re-thinking our ideas. We need to essentially start and end in Paris for personal/logistical reasons since we have a place to stay there, which luckily has parking. So we are thinking instead maybe exploring Alsace and parts of Germany, maybe renting a place for a week each in two smaller towns or cities, like Dijon, or Strasbourg or Nancy.

I would love your input of places you might like if you had a month with a car during the tourist season. My husband is French so we have spent many years exploring the Dordogne, Provence, and other popular destinations in France, but haven't spent as much time East and North. We are pretty sure we would prefer to go that direction this trip versus Spain and Portugal or Italy, since it is pretty hot there that time of year and pretty packed with people. But at the same time we don't want to be totally hanging out in a a place with too little to do. We are not so much into museums, etc. but really like more a slow travel, good food kind of vacation.

Thanks in advance for thoughts and ideas!
