Italy deal alert: Fares from Miami and NYC to Milan, Naples and Rome from $442 round trip
If you're considering a trip in the fall before the holiday season consumes you, we have a great new deal alert for you.
You can save big money on airfare to various Italian cities from Miami, Newark and New York City. There are flights to Bologna, Milan, Naples and Rome in this deal, so don't expect the lowest-price fares, some of which are under $500 for nonstop travel, to last very long.
As with the majority of these discount deals, you'll pay extra to check luggage. Checking a bag will cost between $60-$75 each way, so keep that in mind as you choose your itinerary.
The best availability for this sale is for October and November. There are even flights that include the Thanksgiving holiday. There are also some good prices for flights between January and May of next year.
