Say "Arrivederci!" to the US and "Ciao!" to Italy because flights to the country just dropped to $286 round-trip. And surprisingly, these deals are available to various Italian cities such as Bologna (BLQ), Florence (FLR), Venice (VCE) and of course, Rome (FCO) and Milan (MXP/LIN). Some of these fares are available as soon as November, but you'll find most of the deals from January through April 2020.

Italy is my absolute favorite place to visit; I just can't get enough of the charming streets, amazing food and rich culture. Once you visit, you won't stop dreaming about your next visit back.

Atlanta (ATL) readers will be especially happy about this deal as there's plenty of availability to various Italian cities and it's on Delta. Note that some routes are sold by Delta but are actually operated by SkyTeam partner airlines like Air France and KLM.

All of these fares are available in each airline's version of basic economy, so you'll have to pay extra to pick your seats and check any baggage.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia.
