Why Use the Calculator?

First time travelers to Europe tend to think of the continent as smaller than it really is, prompting many to write me to inquire if they can do a day trip to Lyon from Paris--or from Rome to Venice. Despite fast speeds on Europe's roads (and high-speed trains), you'll not want to spend all your time getting to a destination, especially if you have to return that day. There are enough compelling stops along the road or rail line in Europe to occupy a traveler who limits driving to four hours at most per day.
