Car or Train?
Should you tour Europe on four wheels or ride the rails? Use this quiz and
related resources to make a wise decision.
International Driving Permit
The IDP is an official document that certifies the validity of your home
driver's license in 150 countries. (But beware of so-called "International
Driver's License" scams.)
General Comments on the
European Traffic Code
The interface may be more confusing than a Parisian roundabout, but be patient--and scroll
down for links to pages on traffic signs.
Erick Bredesen's Moto Europa is a guidebook for car, van,
motorhome, and motorcycle travelers. The Web version of the book is geared toward
U.S. drivers, but other non-Europeans will also find it helpful.
