Vienna,Milan or Budapest?

Have three days free in a few weeks and would like to do a small city break. After some light research, I've found that the three cheapest cities to fly to from these dates are Vienna, Milan or Budapest. Would like to know which of these three would be best suited to me? I enjoy history, cheap food and accommodation, beautiful architecture, the ability to explore a city without worrying about crime, and being as far away from drunken west euros as possible.

      I'd say Vienna. To me it's the best of the bunch in terms of history and architecture, and it has everything you want but the the cheap food and acommodation. Though it's far from Geneva or Oslo expensive either, it's still affordable, just not *cheap*. And I second what has said about drunken western euro hordes in Budapest.

    Budapest is probably your cheapest bet. All three are incredible cities with incredible history.

    Vienna 100%, look for the relevant thread's info on it too. Milan isn't as interesting, Budapest will have drunk west euros

    i'd say vienna, i lived nearby for most of my life and vienna is very safe by international standards and the drunks are usually natives and stay inside pubs. i have never seen a drinking group from outside austria or germany in vienna. just avoid ottakring and favoriten, but there's nothing to see there anyways. overall plenty of museums, beautiful churches, food is generally affordable by international standards even if eating out got a lot more expensive in recent years.

    Milan would have better weather. You could jump on the train and be in Florence in 90 minutes, or Rome in 3 hours. Italy would be my first choice between those 3 any time of the year honestly.

    Milan is a typical one-day city, so off the list.

    Budapest has a bigger inner city, much more interesting things to do and to see, but tends to be a bit dirtier, the people are not so "western" etc. Budapest is also the cheaper option.

    History: you can't find a street in Budapest without something historical, Vienna has also interesting things to see but much less in my opinion
    Cheap food and accomodation: Budapest wins 100%, Hungarian food is also bomb
    Beautiful architecture: both cities have beautiful buildings etc., in Budapest there are more, in Vienna they are better renovated
    Safety: Vienna wins but nothing to worry about in Budapest either if your'e not entirely stupid
    Drunken west euros: can be found in both, but Vienna has less

    Overall, Budapest is simply a better tourist destination in my opinion.

    There's also one interesting thing to add, I don't know why, but it's like Budapest wants to show off with the Danube, but in Vienna, it's like they tried to hide it. Bummer.
