Thessaloniki amongst the most affordable European holiday destinations

A recent analysis from finance website money.co.uk has revealed the most affordable European cities to holiday in.

The findings of the British publication are based on the average costs involved per day.

Of all the cities in Europe, Istanbul is the most affordable, followed by Thessaloniki, and then Berlin.

Thessaloniki is Greece’s second largest city and is often referred to as the country’s cultural capital.

It is particularly well known for its cuisine with an array of excellent waterfront eating options as one of the highlights of living or visiting.

Ancient ruins, fascinating museums, great restaurants are all on the cards, not to mention it can be a great base if you want to go on day trips to other parts of Greece.

Meanwhile, the most expensive destination is Ireland’s capital city, Dublin, followed by Prague and Edinburgh in the same place, with Manchester and London ranking in third, fourth and fifth respectively.

The website took into consideration the average costs that make up a typical city break, including the median cost of one night in an Airbnb, a glass of wine, a main meal at the top-rated restaurant, entry to the top attraction, and a 24-hour transportation pass.

By totalling these costs for each European city, the finance experts at money.co.uk ranked them from cheapest to the most expensive based on the minimum total cost in each destination.
