simpleR and Jimmy have some really good routes there. I live a bit closer to all those nice roads and have done many of them loads of times. Went down to the Riviera through the Alps twice this year.

I'd generally speaking recommend the alpine region with all the incredible roads in the French, Italian and Swiss alps. Some hidden gems on the continent in terms of driving roads are northern Luxembourg and the Route des Cretes through Alsace. More known but IMHO overrated driving areas are the Belgian Ardennes and the black forest in Germany.

If you'd aim for the Alps and eastern France you could also squeeze in a visit to the Nürburgring.

Definitely go for the tall vehicle option on the train. If I recall correctly you had to watch out a bit when entering and exiting the train but inside there's loads of space and absolutely safe for 20" wheels...
