This price is based on 2 people travelling from Manchester on 27th February returning 12th March and staying in well reviewed hotels in each city.

Everyone knows how expensive it can be visiting major cities in Europe so here is a way to visit some of Europes finest cities for a nice price!

Trip summary

27th February - You will be flying into Prague airport from Manchester landing at 2105 where you can head straight to the hotel to check in, the connections from the airport to the city are good and the public transport system is excellent around the city. I chose the 4* Iris hotel Eden which is on the outskirts of the city but still within walking distance. There are so many cheaper options but for £22 a night for a 4* hotel with amazing reviews why not pay a little extra?!

28 February - 1st March - explore the city.

2nd March - Check out the hotel and spend a few hours in the city before heading to the airport to head to Rome. You will land into Rome's Fiumicino airport where you can hop on the express train into the heart of the city for around €12 and you'll be in the centre in around 15 minutes. I have chosen Hotel Taormina because it has excellent reviews and is close to Rome's main train station which links you to the airport, it is also close to the metro giving you excellent access to the city. Again if you don't mind shared bathrooms, hostels or being on the outskirts this is a good way to bump the price of the trip down!

3rd-4th March - explore the city

5th March - check out the hotel, leave your bags there and have a few hours exploring the city before collecting your bags and hopping back on the train to the airport where you'll be heading into Barcelona. You'll arrive into Barcelona just after 2000 and the bus to city connections are excellent with there being a bus every few minutes. I have chosen the Hesperia Sant Joan Suites Hotel because I've personally stayed here and I thought it was lovely, it takes around 25 minutes to get into the heart of the city from the hotel but it's a gorgeous hotel so it's worth the travelling, plus it is hard to get a decent, cheap hotel in the city centre with good reviews and a private bathroom!

6-8th March - explore the city

9th March - check out early and head for the airport as the flight to Paris is at 0725, you'll landing into Paris' main airport Charles De Gaulle at 0920 giving you the whole day to explore Paris! Again Paris has excellent connections into the city, hop on the metro straight into the heart of the city it will take just over half an hour. I have chosen the Abricotel Hotel which is located in the North of Paris close to metro stops for easy access to the heart of the city. As anyone that's been to Paris will know trying to get a decent hotel for cheap is a nightmare and the majority of hotels are teeny tiny and very poor so unless you're paying top dollar don't expect anything amazing!

10th-11th March - Explore the city

12th March - Check out of the hotel but leave your bags so you can get your last few hours around the city, you won't be leaving until 1820 so you have most of the day left. You will be flying to Manchester from CDG again so back on the metro to the airport!

If you want to fly from another UK airport there are plenty of other flights on a number of dates to choose from to suit you best!

Easyjet, Ryanair, Air France and Vueling offer 10kg hand luggage and a handbag except easyjet which is unlimited weight but no handbag, which personally for me is ok however if you'd like to check a case in this will bump up the price especially as you have 5 flights to take so I suggest always try to take hand luggage only!

Don't forget to look for voucher codes for hotels to bump the price down!

Excellent, thank you.
What a lot of effort you have put in. You muat have spent hours try trawling websites/flight times. Surely it would be a lot easier to take a package with transfers and all included?

I don't even know if packages like this exist and they definitely wouldn't be this cheap, also it actually took me about 30 mins, it took me longer writing up the description and adding it all up! No need for transfers when public transport is available!

Thanks, I love European cities, all so pretty and different! Not many left to scratch off my list unfortunately but no harm in going again!
Heat for the effort op
Love this! Great work.
wish i seen this last year my train tickets alone around Europe first class cost more than this whole trip for 2 people.
if you could i would definitely add Switzerland on it although expensive to stay it was the best place we visited. Prague is amazingly cheap if you avoid the scam taxi's...heat added.
Well done excellent research
Would need another week off to get rest from such holiday

Oh jeez! I always fly internally within Europe it's so cheap!! I've never been Switzerland just because the hotels are so expensive like you said, always cheap flights but the hotels just put me off!
