The one Stanley Baron takes is possibly the most varied in all Europe. His road begins at Boulogne and unravels across the north and east of France — crossing the Wine Road, near Reims, where Champagne is grown — into the countryside of Lorraine, which has not changed much since Joan of Arc. It follows the wooded Vosges mountains to Colmar, a little medieval town in Alsace, then turns south along the Rhine valley for a fast run into Switzerland through Bale and Lucerne, and a slow one through the heart of the country to the awe-inspiring St Gotthard Pass and onto Rome.”
