Welcome to part two of the best road trip destinations. Here in part two, we continue our search for the very best road trip destinations in the world. Each of the locations has special landmarks with breath-taking views to match.

4. Amalfi Drive, Italy

This winding mountain road displays some of the most stunning, cinematic like scenery in Europe. Travel round the S- shaped road with your Avis car looking over the southern Italian houses carved into the mountain. The route is narrow with only a 3-foot wall separating you from steep mountainous drops on the other side, so this is definitely a road for leisurely drivers as opposed to speed demons. Take your time and enjoy the 360 degree views of this romantic getaway destination.

 5. Pacific Coast Highway, USA

Take a drive through the Pacific Coast Highway which runs down the length of the west coast of the US, bordering the mighty Pacific Ocean. At about 1,000 kilometers in length, this is a leisurely trip that takes you through San Francisco and LA.

Along the way you can also sample the sights and sounds of California, including the wine growing region and famous beaches of Malibu.  If you enjoy surfing, take a moment to discover Zuma beach by heading further up north in the Malibu beach region.

6. Great Ocean Road, Australia

Driving through Melbourne from Adelaide offers an abundance of sites to explore.  Hit the road with car rental in Adelaide and enjoy the scenic route. It boasts a range of iconic surfing spots including Bells beach, Haven of Lorne and the glorious Twelve Apostle rock formation.

Enjoy the scenery when passing through Eucalyptus forests, complete with koalas. For amazing photographic scenes take out your camera and start snapping when you reach the Great Ocean Road.

7. Atlantic Road, Norway

The Atlantic road is a well-known natural tourist route in Norway. Whilst this stretch of road might be less than ten kilometres long, it plays host to both beautiful nature and architecture.  Opened in 1989, the road passes over the Hustadvika, a picturesque area with beautiful views.

On calm days you can even catch sight of whales swimming just off the coast or take a pit stop for a spot of fishing.  Try visiting this location in July as the road is also famous for its annual jazz festival at this time.

Stay tuned for more about the best road trip series, brought to you by Avis.
