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!
Set on a steep hill leading down to the River Windrush, Burford has a fine collection of topsy turvy cottages, ancient stone townhouses and a host of tea rooms and antique shops. Burford gets pretty busy but its picture postcard streets are well worth it and if you wander off down the laneways you'll be transported back in time. There's an excellent garden centre on the outskirts and the lovely Cotswold Wildlife Park just down the road.
