On Facebook, we asked for your favorite summer trips. Kriz Valdéz offered up a popular one: "a road trip around Europe."

No tour of the Continent would be complete without a drive through Tuscany, a pastoral paradise of vineyards, olive groves, sun-dappled hills, and age-old towns. Here, an iconic product of Italy—a Fiat—pauses on a brick road in Certaldo, a charming town southwest of Florence.
