I want to travel to Europe on my own. What city is traditionally the cheapest city to fly into?

I would think that it is cheaper to fly into The Netherlands or Luxembourg or Germany but those travel sites are exhausting trying out different times and dates. I'd like to start looking with a little foreknowledge on the arrival city. Can you help?

^that right there is a website with tons of "package" deals (air, hotel and train).. theres a 5 night italy package for $899, which is cheaper than a trip to nyc.

even if you dont opt for a package like the one above, this website WILL be of great use to you once you arrive in europe
http://www.ryanair.com
they have trips from rome to london for example for around 15 euros.

There are a couple of options...

First, you can check travelocity.com and click on their "dream maps" feature.  This will then allow you to check the lowest fares to a region from your destination city for a set date range.  You can then click through to find specific flights.

Rather than using a company such as hotwire or priceline where the tickets are non-changeable and non-refundable, I would also look at a travel agent that specializes in discount airfares (also known as a bucket shop) since they often have access to bulk airfares that may allow you to fly cheaper.  If you are a students, companies such as STA travel also often have good student fares.

Safe travels!

The closest European city to your departure should be the cheapest based on fuel costs but that is not always true.  In the 60's and 70's it was cheapest to fly the national airline of Iceland and take a stopover in Reykjavik.  You might want to let a travel agent do your hunting since day of departure also affects cost.

Fly into London and take a train wherever you wanna go.  London flights are cheaper than the rest of europe by hundreds of dollars!!!!  and trains are so cheap and easy to use in Europe.  I'd definately recommend doing that if possible.

EDIT: btw I don't know if by alone you mean no friends are coming or you mean u really just want to do it alone, but check out contiki.com they have some amazing european tours for ages 18 - 30.  So cheap, and at such an amazing price.  Everyone I know (including myself) who has taken them can't stop raving.  They are just AMAZING!
