The British company Post Office has compiled a rating of the cheapest European destinations for the weekend. After analyzing 25 popular tourist destinations, it turned out that the cheapest way to spend a weekend is in the capital of Portugal.
When compiling the rating, entertainment options (excursions and museums) were taken into account, as well as the cost of accommodation (2 nights in a 3-star hotel with breakfast), meals (drinks and dinner for two with a bottle of house wine) and public transport tickets for two. Airfare to and from the destination was not taken into account.
So, on average, a weekend in Lisbon will cost 257 euros for a couple of tourists. In Vilnius – 258 euros, in Kraków – 287 euros.
The top 10 included:
1. Lisbon, Portugal (€257)
2. Vilnius, Lithuania (258 euros)
