Resolved Question: Best driving route - UK,
We're planning a driving trip around Europe in June for about 5 weeks. We want to drive from London, through France maybe down to San Sebastian, over to Barca, all round the South of France into Italy. Down Italy to Napoli, then back up to Zurich via Milan. Then finally on to Amsterdam and back to London.
We have google maps our route but obviously I'm sure there are some much nice routes to take. Has anyone done this route before? How long did it take, cost etc? We really want to find a nice route that someone may have already done and follow it so not to get too lost but I can't find anything on the web that actually shows the route on a map?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. We have our own car so no need to rent. We have friends in most main cities and other than the main areas I have listed, looking for suggestions on things you have seen on the general route and rate 'a must see' that may be off the beaten track. We would prefer to stay in more authentic (and cheaper B&B's) maybe on the out skirts.
The plan was to drive back to France to get the ferry back, it doesn't look that long.
When driving through France we don't want to stick to the motorways, some more scenic routes would be better, even if it takes a little bit longer. We don't know much about the West Coast of France, is there any amazing stops on route to Spain? I've heard to stick to the A road as they avoid the tolls.
Also parking? Do you suggest staying outside the main Cities (eg Rome) and getting public transport in, if so where?
What are the best stops along the French Riviera?

Resolved Question: What is the best way to
We are driving from St. Malo Brittany in August on a Saturday down to Beziers, near Montpellier. We plan to stop 1/3 to half way down - explore and stay over night and then do a longer drive the second day. Any suggestions on which route to go that is fast- but we are open to driving a little longer if there is a route that is more scenic and less busy. We have 3 young kids so breaking it up into 2 days. Any recommendations on towns and or hotels that are kid friendly- we would love to hear thanks!
