Europe’s Best-value City Breaks Revealed

Wednesday 23 March 2016

City break in Lisbon

According to the latest Post Office Travel Money City Costs Barometer, the weakening of the pound has caused prices to rise in 80% of cities in Europe.

The study found that Lisbon is currently the cheapest city in Western Europe, based on a weekend break and including costs for local transport, sightseeing, meals and drinks, and two nights' three-star accommodation (£135).

Lisbon has now overtaken Athens (£149), partly due to a fall in hotel prices in the Portuguese capital.

The other cities in the top 10 list are all in Eastern Europe, with Warsaw in Poland leading the pack at £113, followed by Vilnius in Lithuania, Budapest at £123, Riga in Latvia at £132, Krakow at £133 and Dubrovnik in Croatia at £137.
