5 Destinations for your weekend road trip
Eager for the weekend to get here to escape your routine? A road trip is the perfect solution to take a break from your day-to-day life while also getting to enjoy discovering all kinds of new places. Don't know where to go? Don't worry #roadlover and take note, here is a list of 5 incredible destinations for your weekend road trip.
The Milan of Italian fashion, architecture and pleasure
Milan is among many people's favourite destinations for a weekend getaway. To explore its historic centre and visit some of the best-known monuments in the world, you need less than 48 hours. Marvel at impressive monuments such as the Duomo di Milano and the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent. In the city centre, rub shoulders with big names at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and regain your strength on Via Dante and Plaza della Scala where you can try some of the best dishes of Milanese cuisine.
You can also get to know the more cultural side of the city by visiting the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie to see Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper and the elaborate tombs of the Monumental Cemetery.
Just one more tip. It's often cheaper to fly to the Bergamo Airport rather than Milan Malpensa. You can find us there too.
Porto for weekend getaway adventures
Another perfect destination for a two-day adventure. In the centre, enjoy a cruise on the Duoro River or take your best photo from the Don Luis I Bridge and visit some of the most famous monuments such as the Chapel of Souls and the Clérigos Church.
On the other side of the river, in the area of Vila Nova de Gaia, you will find the world famous port wine cellars and can try some of the typical dishes such as "francesinha" or "tripas à moda do Porto". An essential stop during your trip.
Romantic weekend in Florence
The cradle of Renaissance art and architecture is another ideal destination for your romantic weekend road trip, if you're travelling with your significant other.
Must-sees include the Accademia Gallery in Florence, the Boboli Garden and the Florence Cathedral, where we recommend going up the dome to see Brunelleschi's paintings. After so much art, the best thing to do is to go for a walk along the streets and take pictures of the most famous bridge in Florence, the Ponte Vecchio.
Madrid, the Bear and the Strawberry Tree in the centre of Spain
The Spanish capital is a fantastic place for your weekend road trips. You'll run out of time with all the museums, shows, events and places to visit. Some of the plans that you can't miss under any circumstances include: visiting the Reina Sofía and Prado museums, the gardens of the Royal Palace, the Retiro Park, seeing a musical on the "Gran Vía", or eating the most famous squid sandwich in Spain.
You can pick up your Centauro car at any of our Madrid airport offices, at the Chamartín Station, Atocha Station, or any of our offices located in the car parks of Plaza de España and Plaza de Colón.
The best kept secret in Aragon: Albarracín
This small medieval town is surrounded by mountains and has done a very good job of preserving its legacy for more than half a century. A quiet and peaceful place where you can spend a relaxing weekend far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We recommend visiting the Alcázar, the ruins of a Mozarabic castle, and the Albarracín Cathedral.
Fill up your weekends with endless adventures and new destinations. Have you already decided where you are going to go on your next getaway? You provide the plan and we'll provide the car.
See you soon on the road, #Roadlover
