I'm traveling to Germany for the worldcup and would like to see some of France and Italy as well. I'll be there for three weeks and have games on 6/13 and 6/20 in Sttugart and Berlin respectively.
I have not booked my airfare or hotels yets. Does anyone have suggestions for cheap airfares from the U.S. to either Germany, France, or Italy. What about hotels?
I don't know what airfaire to suggest you, but you should make a reservation for your hostel in germany soon, since it is the world cup, and a lot of tourists will be there.
If you haven't booked your flight tickets yet, you will be very lucky if you get anything under 900 USD for June in Germany. Any promotional fares US-Europe end on May 31st, so you can kiss that 400 USD ticket Chicago-Berlin return byebye right now.
Look into flying to a totally different area of Europe ASAP and make your way to Germany then by rail or bus.
BTW, it would be good if you could tell us the soonest possible date you can fly out of the US and what would be the most convenient city for you. Then we could be helpful by doing specific searches.
