Revealed: the 25 cheapest city breaks in Europe

It’s autumn, summer’s over, that back-to-school feeling has just about dissipated. Probably best to have a holiday to look forward to, eh?

Good news then that a break could be cheaper than you think. Airbnb has released new data on the top 25 most affordable city-break destinations in Europe taken from its listings – with the top spot, Tbilisi in Georgia, coming in at a typical £24 a night.

Poland is also a safe bet for reasonable accommodation, with three of its cities in the list (Warsaw, Kraków and Wrocław), while France and Croatia each have two.

Scroll through our gallery below to see the full list of 25 cities, complete with an affordable Airbnb suggestion for each, and  book yourself a break for less than you’d spend on a cheer-up autumn coat (not that you can’t have that as well, of course…).

Based on typical nightly price for Airbnb listings booked 1/10/15 to 1/10/16 in cities with at least 200 listings.
All prices are approximate, converted from USD 11/10/16.
