Retiring in Europe is a dream within the grasp of American couples picking up two Social Security checks per month.
A recent survey found five European cities where life is affordable for a couple living off an average income of $33,696–a minimum annual salary calculated using the average Social Security check most seniors receive alone. As reported by CNBC, the findings show that for $35,000 or less per year, two retirees can live the American dream abroad.
Here are the five cities where the price is right, starting with the cheapest. [CNBC]
