Nothing beats getting around on a set of wheels, whether it is somewhere under pedal power, gliding under electric, or in prestige chariots of (Italian rosso) fire. We have plenty of cool ideas to get around, get the wind in your hair and get experiences ticked off the must-see list.
There is the extraordinary bicycle tour at night through the streets and the historical buildings of the Old City of Istanbul – stopping at instaspots and taking in a taste of Turkey. Or there is heading off for a gourmet picnic – vineyard style on a bicycle ride through the fabled Cape winelands of South Africa.
Vineyards and lunch on wheels can also be experienced in Barcelona on a Segway, as can a great sightseeing tour of Kiev. And electric can also make you go further (and easier) by e-scooter. Paris offers a sightseeing tour with these eco-friendly transports, off on an exciting journey through stunning and varied places of the French capital, finishing in Marais. Riga’s e-scooters are more of a beast – with extra-wide wheels they feel more like surfing than riding on these machines that ride like Harley Davidsons. And think the hills of Lisbon are too much for your legs to power round? Let the e-scooter do the work and you take in the style and the stops of the Lisbon life…
For pure glamour wheels, head to Turin and gaze at the remarkable collection of iconic cars at the National Automobile Museum, before jumping into one of the latest Ferrari models and taking a unique luxury experience behind the wheel of one of the world’s most famous (and desired) cars.
Take a trip along the Malecon, and through Metropolitan and Modern districts of Havana, past countless Instagram opportunities - that includes iconic old American cars you travel in for starters!
And if it’s revving historical engines with a difference that appeals then head to Budapest and take the wheel of the very different but as legendary Trabant, where you can get down and dirty in a Trabant Rally.
However many wheels, two or four, powered or pedalled, there are plenty of experiences in our #euromictags series to take you further.
