  • One paid/famous attraction per day (Every city is loaded with free things to do for budget-conscious travelers, but here we take the average cost of a major attraction in each city for each day. 

  • Three “budget” meals per day (We took our minimum meal price and added 20% to make it more realistic for a longer trip).

Three cheap, local beers (or wine) each day as an “entertainment fund.” Non-drinkers might have dessert and coffee or attend a local music performance instead.
