American travelers were betrayed by their national currency over the past five years, but the dollar is finally taking back some ground. The Dollar's value against the Euro increased 9.2% between January 2010 and January 2012.

Pair a stronger dollar with unsteady European economies -- as well as growing tourist markets and emerging destinations -- and the happy conclusion is this: Europe travel can be affordable again, and not always where you expect it. Follow Travel + Leisure to the European destinations where you'll find the most bang for your buck this year.

Read on for more money-saving tips, such as when to take the plane versus the train, and a breakdown of the best European chain hotels.
