今年夏天去哪里度假?推荐14个好玩不贵的欧洲城市

TravelandLeisure.com 2017年04月30日

除了各个国家的首都,欧洲其实还有很多廉价的去处。

夏天又快到了,很多家庭又到了计划全家出游的时候。如果你想到欧洲去转一圈,Travel + Leisure网站上有很多省钱游欧洲的小攻略。但首先你要知道的是,如何在正确的时间去正确的地方。

让我们先来看看Booking.com的统计结果。从数据上看,消费者旅游首选的欧洲城市基本上都是各个国家的首都,比如伦敦、巴黎和罗马等。除了这些城市之外,欧洲其实还有很多物美价廉的去处——这个问题稍等一下再说。如果你真想去伦敦、巴黎或罗马,那么8月或许是价格最实惠的月份。在这个月造访欧洲三大都市,至少能比6月或7月省下24%以上的费用。但你也要做好街上很多商店都关门了的准备——因为欧洲大部分国家这个月也在放假。

另一种省钱的方法则是去转转其他城市。我们联手Booking.com筛选了一些非美国游客热门目的地的城市,这些地方风情各异,也非常值得一去。另外我们也指出了造访这些城市最划算的月份,以及最理想的旅行方式(如团队游、双人游、家庭游或单人游等 )。

要想省下些机票钱,你最好提前8到10个星期就开始订票——根据客涯网(Kayak)的历史数据,只有这样你才能买到最便宜的机票。另外,去欧洲旅行可能还会牵涉一些额外费用,比如乘坐廉价航空的一些附加费用(有些廉航机票只包一个基本的座位费),行李的重量限制(说不定你想在国外大大地采购一番)等。如果你飞到了一个中型机场,那还得加上中转费用。另外,个别机场还会想法设法收取一些乱七八糟的费用,比如如果你把瑞安航空(RyanAir)的登机牌忘在家了,在机场重新打印就要收你30美元。

斯德哥尔摩,瑞典

何时去最便宜:7月

最佳旅游方式:单人游客

看点:这座城市有着浓郁的咖啡文化。一本杂志、一杯咖啡、一块肉桂面包,就是当地人日常生活的缩影。之所以建议大家7月去,是因为它比6月至少能省下16%的旅费,而且这个月份也能享受到北欧地区更长的阳光。如果你来到这里,千万别忘了到海边买几斤渔民刚捞上来的鲜贝,夹在黑麦面包上吃,味道棒棒嗒!

波西塔诺,意大利

何时去最好:6月

最佳旅游方式:情侣游

看点:波西塔诺有些酒店和度假村住起来非常惬意,比如Le Sirenuse酒店就拥有世界级的服务和格调。前往这座海滨城市费用最贵的月份是7月,如果你选择在6月前往,就能省下不少钱。

布拉格,捷克

何时去最便宜:7月

最佳旅行方式:团队游

看点:布拉格每年7月会举办很多文化活动,你既能看到超大规模的波西米亚爵士音乐节,也能现场聆听莫扎特的经典歌剧《唐璜》——这部歌剧依然在它1787年首次公映的那个剧场上演。你可以选择下榻在去年12月刚刚建成的崭新的Boho酒店里,这座酒店坐落于布拉格市中心,它的极简主义风格的黑白内饰也是一大看点。

马德里,西班牙

何时去最便宜:8月

最佳旅游方式:团队游

看点:8月的马德里天气比较炎热,有些商店也关门了,但你至少能比6月份省下21%的费用。不过如果你提前做足了功课,这两个问题也就都不是问题了。首先,包括普拉多博物馆在内的很多博物馆还开着门,而且游客要比6月份少很多(里面的冷气也很足)。其次,马德里的各个角落都有卖西班牙冻汤和桑格里亚汽酒的地方,这两种饮品绝对是夏日的消暑利器。

托斯卡纳,意大利

何时去最便宜:8月

最佳旅游方式:情侣游

看点:如果你从来没有爬上过Duomo大教堂的楼顶,没有站在375英尺的高度上俯瞰这座尽是陶土房顶的城市,这辈子就算白活了。你可以在这座恬静安适的城市住上几天,然后再到托斯卡纳周边的乡村过一个浪漫的周末,品品酒,在山坡上吃吃野餐,简直浪漫得一塌糊涂。另外,和6月相比,8月去托斯卡纳至少能给你省下24%的旅费。

克拉科夫,波兰

何时去最便宜:7月

最佳旅游方式:单人游

看点:波兰的第二大城市克尔科夫一直是个很低调的城市,很多人甚至不知道世界上还有这么个地方,一直到最近几年,它才成为海外游客的热点——它甚至被Travel + Leisure网站评为全球十佳城市之一。文艺复兴时期这里诞生了许多年轻的思想家,如今这座满是中世纪建筑的老城又焕发出了新的活力。由于二战中一连串针对它的空袭都以失败告终,克尔科夫的大量精美的老建筑最终都幸运地保存到了现在。当地有一座名叫Pauza的著名酒吧坐落在一栋老房子的二楼,你在这里能够遇见这座城市的很多科技达人。

柏林,德国

何时去最便宜:8月

最佳旅游方式:团队游

看点:大家似乎不明白为什么8月是逛柏林的好季节。欧洲很多国家的首都一到8月,不少商店就进入了歇业状态,而柏林的8月却是最活跃的一个月份。你可以买上几张柏林国际啤酒节或者八月舞蹈节的票,这两场活动每年都会吸引欧洲各国的大量游客。至于住宿,你可以下榻当地以其独特设计而闻名的Das Stue酒店,从这里开启一场真正的《遗愿清单》式的旅行。

爱丁堡,英国

何时去最便宜:6月

最佳旅游方式:团队游

看点:8月的爱丁堡会扎堆举办好几个艺术节,酒店房间自然也是人满为患。如果你选在6月去,就会为你省下大约29%的费用。不过你提前还是有很多功课要做。爱丁堡有条不得不去的街道,那就是照相简直完美的维多利亚街,这是一条弯弯曲曲的由鹅卵石铺成的街道,直通向乔治四世大桥。在这里你能找到全爱丁堡最好的茶馆——卡提萨克茶馆(Cuttea Sark)。(推荐购买含有西柚精华的“蓝色佳人”红茶,是一种绝佳的纪念品。)

杜布罗夫尼克,克罗地亚

何时去最便宜:6月

最佳旅游方式:家庭游

看点:欧洲的有闲一族最爱的消暑方式,是在达尔马西亚的海滩玩帆船。而你则可以在这座历史古迹保存完好且风景绝佳的海边城市过几天神仙般的日子。你可以住在有19间客房的普谢客宫殿酒店(Pucic Palace)里,也可以去逛逛古城的海滩,在日暮时分登上中世纪古堡的城墙。你或许会觉得惊讶:为什么这里的很多景色都有似曾相识之感?答案是:《权力的游戏》的很多场景便是在杜布罗夫尼克的古城里取景的。

布鲁日,比利时

何时去最便宜:7月

最佳旅游方式:情侣游

看点:布鲁日可以说是全球最有魅力的地方之一,当你看到那些13世纪的建筑时,恍惚间甚至会产生进入童话世界之感。要想在这座美丽的古城中呼吸一丝现代的气息,你可以选择入住梵克酒店(Van Cleef)。这座建筑已有700年的历史了,它曾是传奇的梵克家族的居住地,现在已经改造成了一座精品酒店。这座酒店完美地将各种造型和颜色杂糅在一起,其设计只能用异想天开来形容。

巴塞罗那,西班牙

何时去最便宜:8月

最佳旅游方式:家庭游

看点:巴塞罗那整个夏天都值得一去。虽说8月份的旅费最便宜,但6月和7月也就仅仅贵了3%。你可以在它的L’Eixample区瞻仰一下西班牙著名建筑师高迪的建筑作品,或是到保格利亚市场用区区几美元吃一顿丰盛的大餐。住宿方面,你可以入住Casa Bonay酒店,它绝对是巴塞罗纳所有新开张的酒店中设计最时尚的一座。

阿姆斯特丹,荷兰

何时去最便宜:7月

最佳旅游方式:团队游

看点:对于情侣来说,乘小舟游运河绝对是一次非常浪漫的体验。不过作为团队游客,在阿姆斯特丹也有很多好玩好逛的地方。首先这里有世界级的博物馆(如阿姆斯特丹国立博物馆,这里还新开了一家非常受欢迎的餐厅),其次你可以入住一些非常时尚的酒店(如Hoxton酒店)。另外你也可以去阿姆斯特丹著名的商业区九小街(Nine Streets)购物。到时你会只恨爹妈没有给你多生几只手来拎购物袋。

都柏林,爱尔兰

何时去最便宜:8月

最适合的旅游方式:家庭游

看点:都柏林又称“吉尼斯黑啤之都”。对于全家出游的游客来说,占地1700英亩的凤凰公园(Phoenix Park)是个不得不去的地方。凤凰公园位于市中心以西,是世界上最大的城中公园,公园里有花园、林荫道、动物园和茶室。都柏林也有非常适合孩子参观的博物馆和水族馆。如果条件允许,尽量到阿什福德城堡住上一晚,让全家人都体验一把王室般的奢华。

里斯本,葡萄牙

何时去最便宜:8月

最佳旅游方式:情侣游

看点:说起好玩不贵的欧洲城市,什么时候也不能忘了里斯本。里斯本的魅力不仅仅在于它的旅游价值,它还是一个崛起中的设计之都,堪称是设计界的圣城麦加。许多艺术家用巧夺天工的技艺,给传统的器物(比如鞋帽、首饰等)赋予了现代的气息。6月是到里斯本旅游最贵的季节,旅费比8月高出了14%。(财富中文网)

School’s (almost) out for summer—which means it’s time to start planning a getaway. If Europe is on your agenda, Travel + Leisure has you covered with lots of ways to save money as you plan. But the very first step is knowing how to be in the right place at the right time.

For that, we’ve rounded up data-driven suggestions from Booking.com. According to their insights, Americans are most likely to head to the continent’s capitals: London, Paris, and Rome. There are more cost-effective destinations—and we’ll get to that in a second—but if you’re also keen to visit one of the Big Three, then you ought to plan on visiting in August for the best prices across the board. Doing so will save you 24 percent off compared to a June or July trip, but be prepared for lots of stores to be closed—much of Europe is also on vacation that month.

Hitting alternative destinations is a smarter way to save. That’s why we’ve partnered with Booking.com to select European cities that might not be on the list of America’s most popular summer getaways, but should be. We’ve also figured out the cheapest month to visit and ideal traveler profile (groups, couples, families, or solo).

But don’t forget about saving on flights, too. To do that, book your tickets eight to ten weeks out from your trip—that’s when historic data from Kayak shows you’ll get the best deal. Consider extra charges from budget airlines (which could cover anything and everything, down to choosing a basic seat), baggage weight restrictions (in case you’re planning to bring home a haul), and transit costs if you’re flying to a secondary airport. And don’t overlook airline-specific, obscure fees, like forgetting your printed RyanAir boarding pass at home (it can cost you $30 to have it reprinted at the airport). More of these tips can be found right here.

Stockholm

Cheapest month to go: July

Best for: Solo travelers

Why book it: This city has such a vibrant café culture, you’ll feel like a local just by settling in with a journal, coffee, and a kardemmumabuller (translation: a supremely delicious, only-in-Sweden variety of the cinnamon bun made with plenty of cardamom instead.) Going in July means a 16 percent saving over trips in June, when summer prices are at their peak—and it also means long days of Scandinavian sun. While you’re there, be sure to hit the coast for fresh-from-the-fishermen shellfish, usually piled high on rye toast.

Positano

Best month to go: June

Best for: Couples

Why book it: You can break the bank staying at a hotel like Le Sirenuse—a global standard setter for service and style. But you can make up some of the difference by traveling in June rather than July, when prices max out in this seaside stunner of a destination.

Prague

Cheapest month to go: July

Best for: Groups

Why book it: July brings tons of cultural events to Prague—everything from the supersized Bohemia Jazz Fest to a staging of Mozart’s Don Giovanni in the same theater where it first premiered in 1787. Stay in the beautiful new Boho Hotel, which just opened in December with minimalist, grey-on-white interiors in the historic city center.

Madrid

Cheapest month to go: August

Best for: Groups

Why book it: Going in August means you’ll encounter pretty hot temperatures and some store closures in Madrid—but you’ll also save 21 percent over a trip in June. The good news is that if you’re smart about planning, neither of those two caveats will get in your way. For one thing, museums like the Prado are still open—and have far fewer crowds (along with plenty of air conditioning). And there’s always plenty of gazpacho and sangria to keep you cool, nearly anywhere you look.

Tuscany

Cheapest month to go: August

Best for: Couples

Why book it: If you’re never climbed to the top of the Duomo and surveyed a city of terracotta rooftops from 375 feet in the air, you simply haven’t lived. Spend a few days in this intimate, manageable city before whiling away a romantic weekend in the surrounding Tuscan countryside, where wine tastings and hillside picnics make for the most romantic of getaways. Bonus: traveling in August means you’ll save 24 percent compared to a trip in the peak month of June.

Krakw

Cheapest month to go: July

Best for: Solo travelers

Why book it: After many years of flying under the radar, Poland’s second city is taking a turn in the spotlight—it’s even ranked in the top 10 T+L’s World’s Best Cities. Credit the renaissance to a young generation of creative thinkers, ready to infuse the city’s medieval buildings with a vibrant new energy. (The city’s stunning architecture largely survived WWII due to a series of failed air raids.) Rub elbows with the city’s emerging tech crowd at places like Pauza, a locally beloved bar on the second floor of a former tenement house.

Berlin

Cheapest month to go: August

Best for: Groups

Why book it: Nobody seems to understand why Berlin is so affordable in August; unlike other capitals that shut down for the month, Berlin is at its most alive this month. Get tickets to the International Beer Festival or Dance in August—both events that draw continental crowds—and book yourself in to Das Stue, our favorite design-driven property in town, for a true bucket list trip.

Edinburgh

Cheapest month to go: June

Best for: Groups

Why book it: August is Festival month in Edinburgh, when the city’s calendar of events is as packed as its hotel rooms. Going in June will save you a whopping 29 percent, and there’s still tons to do. After you’ve made your way through the city’s main sights, head straight to picture-perfect Victoria Street, a curved, cobblestone street right off the George IV Bridge, where you’ll find Cuttea Sark, the city’s best place to buy tea. (Get the Blue Lady black tea with grapefruit essence. It’s a perfect souvenir.)

Dubrovnik

Cheapest month to go: June

Best for: Families

Why book it: While Europe’s who’s who spend their summers yachting up the Dalmatian Coast, you can live the fabulous life in this stunningly preserved seaside city. Stay in the 19-room Pui Palace, take a dip in one of the city’s pristine beaches, and walk the walls of the medieval fortress at sunset. Need a clue on why those historic ramifications look so familiar? Dubrovnik’s Old Town makes many a cameo in Game of Thrones.

Bruges, Belgium

Cheapest month to go: July

Best for: Couples

Why book it: You’ll feel like you’ve walked into a fairy tale when you see the 13th-century architecture that makes Bruges one of the most charming places on earth. For a breath of modernity in a city that’s all about the beautifully aged, stay at The Van Cleef. Once home to the legendary Van Cleef family, the 700-year-old estate has been updated as a boutique hotel where the whimsical design can only be characterized as a riotous, perfectly layered mash-up of patterns and colors.

Barcelona

Cheapest month to go: August

Best for: Families

Why book it: Barcelona offers great value all summer—and despite the fact that August offers the best prices, traveling in June or July will only cost you three percent more. Roam L’Eixample, with its fabulously over-the-top Gaudi buildings, and pop into La Boqueria market for a feast that’ll only cost a few bucks. Then collapse into bed at Casa Bonay, undoubtedly the most stylish new hotel in town.

Amsterdam

Cheapest month to go: July

Best for: Groups

Why book it: Strolling the canals is perfect for a romantic couples’ retreat, but Amsterdam has tons to offer for groups. Check out world-class museums like the Rijksmuseum (complete with a hot new restaurant), stay at ultra-hip hotels like the Hoxton, and hit the Nine Streets district for amazing shopping. The more hands you’ve got, the more bags you can hold.

Dublin

Cheapest month to go: August

Best for: Families

Why book it: The Guinness capital of the world, for families? Believe it. Dublin has Europe’s largest enclosed urban park just west of its downtown core—the 1,700-acre Phoenix Park includes gardens, tree-lined boulevards, a zoo, and a tea parlor. (The city also has a great children’s museum and aquarium.) Be sure to tack on a stay at Ashford Castle, where everyone (adults included!) can feel pampered as royalty.

Lisbon

Cheapest month to go: August

Best for: Couples

Why book it: It’s always been a strong candidate where affordable European destinations are concerned, but Lisbon isn’t just attractive for its value. It’s also an emerging design mecca, with tons of artisans putting a modern spin on traditional wares (we’re talking hats, shoes, jewelry—the fun stuff). Be advised that June is the most expensive summer month to travel, when a trip costs 14 percent more than it does in August.
