Where in Europe have you made your money go farthest?

Jump to last reply

As we look toward our next trip to Europe - whenever and wherever it may be - I'm curious to know where you feel like you've been able to stretch your money most. When I research budget travel destinations, what I usually find is a list of countries/cities to which there are good flight deals and in which reasonably priced lodging abounds. However, as I've probably mentioned in previous threads, we tend to fly using miles and stay using hotel points, so I'm more interested in costs such as food, shopping, public transport, landmark attractions, day trips, etc.

Of course I know that most places are as cheap or as expensive as you make them. But I'm wondering if there are destinations that people might not necessarily think of as budget-friendly, but actually are. For example, we recently spent a week in Munich and found it surprisingly affordable, and we didn't stint on food or activities at all.

Thanks for your thoughts!
