between France & Spain

I love the road between Oloron-Sainte-Marie - Arette - La Pierre Saint-Martin ski resort - Isaba/Izaba - Roncal

Polish DK8 between Kudowa-Zdrój & Kłodzko is also very, very nice

English M20 when approaching Dover is also nice.

More later

In Italy I would for sure choose SS45bis "Gardesana occidentale", running along the western shore of Garda lake, often inside tunnels dug few meters from the waters:



And you cannot leave out SS145 "Sorrentina", running along the Sorrento paeninsula and Amalfi coast:

SR479 Near Scanno (L'Aquila) - Abruzzo, inside the gorge formed by Sagittario river:


Same road, near Villalago, inside the Sagittario gorge. This is Sagittario lake:


Same road, near Anversa degli Abruzzi (visible at the right):


Trivia about Anversa degli Abruzzi. "Anversa" is the Italian name of the Belgian city Antwerp, so "degli Abruzzi" (of Abruzzo) was added to avoid misunderstandings.

Well yes but they're all boring duel-carriageways with a view on... water. It's not terribly exciting and it doesn't compare well to, for instance, the coastal road from Amalfi to Sorrento (I used to live in Salerno so I'm very familiar with that extraordinarily pretty part of Italy).

Bergen to Oslo on E16.(you can view any bit of it,at "street view"level on the google map).You see mountains,fjords,bridges etc

The road,south of St Moritz,changes name,as you go through a range of villages.Stunning views of lakes mountains.

p.s.another eye raiser is the road from Svetl Vlas,down to Sunny Beach(Bulgaria).You can see this,under "Black sea resorts",in the Bulgaria forum(dont know the name of the road).It has a mountain on one side,black sea on the other and a dual carriageway with palm trees in the middle.

Bulgaria
E-79 nationalroad Dlona Dykania - Sandanski, lots of mountains and steep rocks.
You see the Rila mountain, the Pirin mountain and the western mountains from that road, the rila mountain in Dupnica looks similar to Jesenice in Slovenia, it always reminded me to that.

Struma motorway
There are great hills there aswell and an incredible view to the Vitosha mountain.

Ljulin motorwaay

E- 80 nationalroad: Great mountainvalley close to the border.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Slovenia:
A2 - Ljubliana - Jesenice
One of my favourites, the peaks that can be seen there just wake up deep feelings in humans, the beautiful storzic is a true highlight.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Serbia:
Nis - Dimitrovgrad:
Great landscape there, lots of rocks and steep walls in that gorge with 13 tunnels, after that part the hills turn more gentle but are still very picturesqueue and the landscape looks very countrylike and wild, much different to some treeless parts in europe.

Another one from Norway.

E-10 from Bjervik to the tip of Lofoten. What you are seeing: mountains, mountains, mountains, mountains, some sea and hills.
