Explore the UK and Europe with Avis car hire 

Europe is the cradle of western civilisation and has played an important role in shaping world history. Roman architecture can be admired in many countries, but especially in Italy. The Greeks left a permanent impression on theatre and philosophy. For example, they invented the political system that we call democracy. Many remnants of their ancient culture can be admired in Greece, from the ancient sites of Athens to the Minoan Palace of Knossos and the Meteora monasteries. 
 
From city hubs...

European adventures can be so diverse. Maybe you’re eager to absorb city-centre sights before beginning setting off in your hire car to green pastures: taking in London’s Trafalgar Square and Big Ben; Paris’ Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum. Discover Rome’s Colosseum, St. Peter's Square and St. Peter's Basilica. Visit the Sagrada Família in Barcelona, Dam Square in Amsterdam and the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. 
 
…to countryside retreats

For those seeking natural marvels, consider Iceland with its unique landscape of geysers sending jets of volcanic hot water and steam into the air. England’s postcard-perfect Lake District or fossil-finding Jurassic coast shouldn’t be missed, nor should the majestic wetlands of Doñana National Park in Spain or over 800km of Portuguese coast to soak up the rays.  
 
For those wanting to blend culture with local culinary delights, a journey through France, sampling the gastronomic specialities of each region, will give your drive a new element of discovery. You might take a cookery class in Florence or go explore the vineyards of Tuscany. 
 
The point of no return

You might opt to extend your voyage, using Avis’s one-way car hire option to border-hop and take in the sights of multiple countries in Northern Europe across changing landscapes, languages and cultures. You’ll find gems such as beautiful Bruges in Belgium, regarded as the Venice of the north. A a few hours later via the autobahns of Germany you can reach magical landscapes, Alpine forests, lakes and fairytale castles.  
 
You might head north for the bustling metropolis of Hamburg, a great port city famed for its food, culture, shopping and nightlife. Or you can weave south to Heidelberg, one of the most picturesque destinations in Europe, where you’ll follow in the footsteps of novelist Mark Twain, who stopped off there to finish writing his Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  
 
With so much to see and experience, isn’t it time to create your own European adventure with Avis?
