We’re willing to be flexible on where we start our Europe trip and I’ve heard that different airports charge different taxes, with hundreds of dollars difference possible.  Does anyone know of specific airports that are cheaper or significantly more expensive?

The UK usually has the highest taxes. Still, it’s quite possible the total fare to the UK will be cheaper than to another city.
 
So there’s no way to be sure what the best city combination is without pricing out the combinations.

Which is to say: “always make your decision based on all-included total price.”
