Here's What £746 In Rent Will Get You Around Europe

Everyone's heard the story about the friend-of-a-friend who moved to a cool city in mainland Europe, fell in love with someone terribly attractive and now lives in a three-bedroom flat with a roof terrace and pays €150 a month for the privilege.

Surely it's got to be cheaper elsewhere? We decided to take a look at what £746 will get you around Europe, to see whether that friend-of-a-friend really does have it so good.
