Shake Away The January Blues Here Are The Top 10 Value For Money City Breaks In Europe


January is dragging, snow is on the way and damn it is grey everywhere, I think we all need something to look forward too, and this might just be it. The team at asked thousands of holidaymakers to rate Europe’s most popular city break destinations for value for money, and you can view the list below. Krakow, one of the Poland’s oldest and most majestic cities, was the only destination to get a five-star rating for value for money. It also received the highest city score overall in our survey – 91%.

Kraków (97) 91%
Winning is easy when you’ve got Renaissance palaces and Baroque churches on every corner, not to mention alfresco cafes strewn across street upon street of cobblestones. The best bit? Krakow continues to resist the urge to shake down visitors with extortionate prices. The average nightly hotel rate is just £63, and you’ll get a good meal for less than a tenner, as long as you steer clear of the main square.

Valencia (44) 91%

Budapest (117) 89%

Bologna (49) 88%
Food is so important in Bologna that the original recipes for tortellini and tagliatelle are stored in the medieval chamber of commerce. Last year, FICO – the world’s first ‘foodie theme park’ – opened nearby, but for a more authentic rummage, you need to breathe in the aromas of the food quarter, a tangle of streets filled with greengrocers, delicatessens, cheese shops and even chocolate specialists. Let your senses be the judge of where to end up. While food may not be insanely cheap (a restaurant meal will cost around €35pp), the quality is high, and excellent wine costs just €3 a glass. The average hotel price is £71 a night.

Berlin (195) 87%
Seville (106) 87%
Barcelona (130) 86%
Vienna (145) 86%
Funchal (92) 85%
Amsterdam (150)
