Nearly everyone dreams of a vacation in Europe. The continent’s culturally rich destinations lure tourists who come to experience something different from their homes.
With remarkable historic sites, dynamic cultures, and delicious food, it is no surprise that Europe is one of the most visited regions in the world.
But a trip to Europe is not always within reach for many travelers. The cost of airfare, accommodations, food, and entertainment can add up fast.
If you are curious about which places are the most affordable to visit, look no further. The UK Post Office has just released a list of the most affordable destinations based on eight pricing indicators.
