A buddy of mine and I are planning on taking a road trip from Paris to Milan this summer. Late August to early September for 2 weeks. Thought I'd take some opinions from some other members on some nice places to see or stay at. I'd like to visit the Nurburgring and Spa if possible.

The rough itinerary is to hit:
France
Belgium
Germany
Switzerland
Monaco
Italy

Driving through the Alpine roads all the way down to Monte Carlo, scenic routes preferred. In 2012 I did a week-long road trip from Milan to Nice and back for the Italian GP. Had a blast so I'm really looking forward to an even longer trip!

I second that, went through Stelvio Pass 2 years ago, it was something special. If you happen to go through there I'd also suggest going to Garmisch-Partenkirchen especially for this river %7B91fd3705-2666-c8fc-5478-06f70059d10f%

Also the route from Cuneo along E74 to Nice going through Sospel is quite fantastic, especially if you have a car for it. I believe Clarkson and Hammond went through there in their last years DVD as well.

That sounds like it's gonna be one helluva trip, but I second that question. What cars will you be driving?

Still not sure what car we're going to get. It's going to be a rental of course. My only requirements so far are 2-doors and a manual transmission.

I'm going on a road trip this spring, won't be pretty as that, but I'm excited.  My rental is a pick-up truck since I will be bringing furniture from Texas to Georgia.

Rent an Alfa Romeo, because it never makes sense to actually buy one.

Truck is already full of family members.  Not just a road trip, either.  Also get to visit family and friends in Texas for a week.

Change of plans, we are now also staying in London the last week of June. Any suggested places to stay at (cheap would be nice), only 2 of us.
