With attractive destinations nearby like the Rhine Falls in Schaffhausen, Zurich is an ideal starting point for driving tours in a luxury car.

The picturesque Lake Geneva doesn’t only offer a nice view, lots of sights and interesting places are located around its borders as well. Combined with gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels, Geneva is a perfect destination for summer holidays and driving tours in Europe.
  • Nice: If you’re headed to the South of France, we recommend Nice as a destination. Centrally located between Antibes and Monaco, this town doesn’t only offer lots of possibilities to stroll around on the Promenade des Anglais. You can also gain cultural insights in the old town of the city and reach beautiful villages in the vicinity.
  • Milan: Few other cities combine culture, fashion and Italian lifestyle like Milan does. Discover cultural highlights like the Milan Cathedral and enjoy a driving tour to the Lake Como in a luxury car.

Rather, you can drop off your luxury car by Edel & Stark exactly at the location that fits your travel plans best.
