8 Days As much as we love the Alps, they aren’t able to negate the Pyrenees.
Sunday – From our hotel on the edge of the Vosges mountains we head straight down to the fun. Monday – Moving on through Switzerland and Italy we find ourselves nestled in the mountainside above Bourg St Maurice for an amazing dinner and a good night’s sleep.
There are 2 routes today though, which converge at lunch.
Finally, we descend on the ancient city of Carcassonne. Yes, that’s right, we’re going to enjoy the majesty of this walled city as is only possible on foot.
But don’t worry, if you do want to get out for a drive we can suggest some amazing roads to explore too.
Over the decades many artists have sung “get your kicks on Route 66” so join us in our exploration of part of this fantastic road.
Enjoy this road trip from the air conditioned comfort of your modern day American sports car or get the wind in your hair in an open top convertible!
Through Moriarty and on to Santa Rosa where we stop to spend a little time at the Route 66 Auto Museum.
At Cuervo we again leave the new highway and follow old 66 to our destination of Tucumcari.
However all was not lost, volunteers and state associations sprang up.
Old buildings were restored, neon signs relit and travellers began to come back to experience some of the wonderful sights along Route 66.
Bordering France and Spain, the Pyrenees provide a different mix of roads and scenery with architecture and geology to rival the best Alpine passes. Summary: Saturday – Join us for an early breakfast whilst we talk you through the events of the forthcoming week.
