The Amalfi coast, Italy
The Amalfi coast in southern Italy’s Sorrento Peninsula is home to one of the most legendary drives in the world. It is, in UNESCO’s words, “an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape”. Expect stunning sights all along its 25-mile sweep, with cliffs, towns and historic, terraced villages on one side and mesmerising views of the Mediterranean Sea on the other.
Manali Leh Highway, India
Jab We met and Manali share some special bond. Let me tell on recent trip to Manali a tourist guide shown many places where jab we met have been shoot. This winding 490 kilometre-long highway has spectacular views of the snow-clad Himalayas, mountain passes, glaciers, streams and high-altitude plains. It’s covered in snow for much of the year, and only opens during the summer months, between June and October.
Great Alpine Road, France
Ever looked wistfully at those cyclists making their way through the picturesque French Alps in the Tour de France? Well, consider driving along the Great Alpine Road or the Routes des Grandes Alpes, which connects Lake Geneva and the French Riviera. Travel through the snow-capped mountains, valleys and lakes of the French Alps, but watch out for some hair-raising corners around mountain passes such as Col de l’Iseran, the highest paved pass in the Alps.
Atlantic Road, Norway
This zigzagging road on the Norwegian coastline, eight kilometres long, passes across seven bridges. The most famous of these, the Storseisundet Bridge, is known for its scary twists and turns. The ride comes with breathtaking views of the western fjords, and the surprising glimpses of seals, whales and exotic birds along the way are an added attraction.
