As part of our summer road-trip season we have researched some of the best trips you can do by car. Here’s our guide to one of Europe’s ultimate road-trips: the ‘Grand Tour’, featuring France, Switzerland and Italy. This trip takes in picture-postcard French villages, snow-covered alpine mountains and the glitz and glamour of Monaco and Milan!
The coastline of Menton, France, seen from the Quai Impératrice Eugénie. Menton is a lesser known little town on the French Riviera, just before you cross into Italy, that beats its glamorous neighbours in charm and ambiance. It has a beautiful bay with houses in an array of warm tints spilling down the hillside to the sea. The view reminded me of pictures I’ve seen of Cinque Terre in Italy, but Menton is a lot less touristy (you can click through to the blog post for more photos)
