Valletta ‘one of the best-value city breaks’ in Europe

Valletta has been ranked as one of the best-value city breaks in Europe.

Malta’s capital city was found to be significantly less expensive than the likes of Edinburgh, Paris, Berlin, Rome and Barcelona.

Post Office Travel Money surveyed the price of 12 typical items across 36 European cities.

The list included the cost of things like food and drink, accommodation and must-see attractions.

Eastern Europe continues to dominate the list of best-value capitals, with Valletta coming just outside the top 10 in 11th place.

Meals, drinks and other tourist costs in the Maltese capital were the fifth cheapest in the survey, although accommodation costs were higher than in the top 10 cities.

Meals in the Greek capital Athens were significantly cheaper than in any of the other cities surveyed.

By comparison, overall prices were more than twice as high in the two most expensive destinations, Venice and Amsterdam.

Edinburgh emerged as the cheapest of the three UK cities surveyed.

Poland’s second city Krakow pulled ahead of its rivals to emerge as cheapest for a bargain break.
