Next on the list is another paradise from the beautiful land of Italy. This is one city where you might want to keep aside your vehicle and enjoy the waterways in a gondola. Thanks to global warming, with the rising sea levels, you might not be able to make a second trip to this city, so make the most of it on your stop.


Once you make a stop in this Spanish city, make sure to grab a bite of the local cuisine. Do try and watch a bullfight while you’re there, they surely are entertaining. If not you can always wait until the sun set and be a part of the wildest parties in Europe.


After making your way to Vienna, make it a point to visit at least one of the many cafes in the city, or pick from the many taverns and grab an amazing glass of wine that only Vienna can offer. If you fancy something a little classier than wine, head to the Staatsoper for an opera experience you will always remember.


Prague is known to be a hotspot for UNESCO world heritage sites. . So when you do make a stop at this city, make time to visit at least a few of them. A site which is not a part of that list is the largest ancient castle in the world, the Prague Castle. With all these places to visit and more, Prague will surely make this stop worth your while.


When we say Munich, you think Oktoberfest. But there is a lot more to this city than just a lot of beer. For a dose of entertainment, we suggest you head to Marienplatz to get an assortment of cafes, restaurants, shops and even street performers. For a more peaceful option, opt for  a relaxing trip on a steamboat to Lake Starnberger.


With so much to offer, your Amsterdam holiday is sure you take you by surprise. This is one city where you must put aside your vehicle, pick up a cycle and take off on the European streets. Take a ride along the city centre, and even make a trip to the famous Anne Frank House, which is now a museum.

Needless to say, aerial views of a city are not overrated and it’s a must try.


Kick off your tour around Zurich by basking in the beauty of medieval Swiss architecture. Add to that a trip to Rietberg Museum, a 200-year old villa dedicated to non-European art.
