I know that there are a few here in this forum going to Italy. I was wondering if they can tell us where, how, what price, airlines, and when you will be travelling here so we can assist each other in finding the right price...or better yet, a better way to get to Italy....

I will be leaving at the end of April. 2 Weeks. So far we have found $650 tickets directly to Rome from NJ.

Flying to Italy :

  • From wich city/country are you flying from
  • Wich city in Italy you want to arrive
  • Can you change flights or only direct flights

That sounds like a good deal. The cheapest we've found for mid-May is $889 Canadian direct between Montreal and Rome. (My friend is insisting we reserve our seats [she's terrified of flying] so add on another $30.) If anyone finds a cheaper way, let us know!

It's much cheaper to fly to London and then getting a cheap flight to Italy through RyanAir. Also, check out flying into Dublin then to Italy. I'm flying out on April 20th from Los Angeles to Dublin for $525 and then from Dublin to Pisa on the 24th for $29. Do a lot of experimenting with different airports in Europe and the U.S. Also, check out cheap European airlines like ryanair, easyjet, airberlin, skyeurope .... stuff like that. There are lots of variables you can adjust to save lots of money. Hope this helps.

I also think that it's cheaper flying to London or Dublin and from there to Italy. Check Aer Lingus, they've got good prices... http://www.aerlingus.com/

1. I'm flying from EWR/JFK/PHL (USA, NJ, PHILADELPHIA)
2. Arrive in Rome
3. I don't really care, I want to maximize my time a good 12+ days as opposed to 10 days. We have currently off on the 16th-29th so I'm trying to plot time to leave on 16th and arrive back on the 29th of April.

Well prices are going up quickly. 650 was a few days ago, now it's 670. Not surprising. However, I have to add in an additional 100+ or so for taxes bringing it up to 770 or so. Still cheaper than what you have found.

We ran a few variables using RyanAir. Unfortunately, if we use a similar route from EWR/PHL/JFK (NJ/PENN USA) to Dublin, flights leaving from Dublin via RyanAir has to stop to Heathrow, London before it goes to Rome.

Then again, you are going to Pisa.

Quick question.. Are you sure you have only the 16th through the 29th off, because the 16th is a sunday and the 29th is a saturday, I would think you'd have the whole weekend off, but maybe not. Anyways, I still think you should consider non-direct flights. You can leave at 8:55p on April 15th from EWR to London for $559 after taxes. Then get a short flight to Italy. You also don't have to get the connecting flight to Rome. It's usually cheaper to fly into a different city then take a bus or train into town. That's what I'm doing when I fly into Pisa I'm going to take a train to Bologna because it's more cost effective that way. Also, when searching for flights leaving on the 16th they usually don't arrive to Europe until the 17th, so you effectively lose a day and don't get it back until you leave. I'd also keep Dublin in mind, maybe don't use RyanAir, but I've found tickets out of EWR in the 400's. Check out Orbitz, Expedia, and Travelocity. Also, check out bookingbuddy.com. I bought my tickets through Orbitz, I think they have the best prices, but you definitely need to compare all these search engines. Orbitz has a flight from EWR,PHL,and JFK to Rome for $741 after taxes. Anyways, I hope this is more help.
