Name Scooter the Rivieras of Southern Europe

From Barcelona to Athens by scooter! What better way to explore the coasts of Spain, France, Italy and more, than with helmet hair.

This once-in-a-lifetime journey will start in Barcelona, Spain with some dancing, up and around France to taste fine wine and cheese, and into Monaco to have a little glam-up and gamble.

Then onto Italy to the rugged coast of Cinque Terre for a few days of rest, and back on the road to the spectacular destination of Venice. After the city of water, we cross though Slovenia to arrive in Croatia's capital, Zagreb.

We then head down the coast of Croatia, crossing through Montenegro and Albania to reach Greece. Our final destination doesn't have to be Athens, I'd love to island hop for a little bit afterwards.

I'm open to anyone coming with me, and I'm more than happy to change parts of the journey/cities/countries we go through. I do want Spain, Italy, Croatia and Greece to be in the itinerary somewhere though.

I have no riding skills whatsoever so don't be put off by the amount of driving we will do. It will probably take 25 to 30 days riding 2 hours per day, but we will stop and rest in places we like, making it a 2 month trip. I will also get on a bike beforehand to get the basics down, but no prior scooter experience is really necessary - if worse comes to worse, we can hire push-bikes!!! Yeah right.

Briar HI Erinna, Your trip sounds fabulous!! If i had more time i would be in for the scooter touring. I will be over in France until 24th August and i have posted a trip on this site. It includes visiting the south of France- if you’re interested we could always meet up and swap travelling stories or i could tour part way with you! Have you investigated where to hire scooters from? And what type of accommodation you’re interested in?
