Up Up and Away, Off to Italy we go

Dear Postcards from Rome Reader,

One thing, that unites lovers of Italy everywhere, is the ceaseless hunt for great airfares. If we are not there, great fares offer a chance to return sooner than we think; If we live in Italy, it's the perfect gift for kids or grandkids to allow them to visit.

Norwegian Air recently announced insanely low airfares from New York JFK to Oslo and Stockholm this winter, and to Rome this summer during July and August! For fares this low, it is well worth a detour to Norway or Sweden this winter for a few days, then pick up a discounted Ryan Air, Easy Jet or Norwegian Air flight into Rome, Milan or one of Italy's smaller airports.

The summer 2014 fares are just outrageous and I understand they are selling quickly, so don't waste a minute before checking the Norwegian Air website for departure times.

Why these deep discounts at the height of the summer vacation season? Norway is awash in money from its North Sea oil production and is eager to boost the country's tourist industry. With it's spectacular venues for skiing and winter sports, these low cost flights will make Norway and Sweden even more attractive winter vacation destinations.

When the usual summer airfares from New York to Italy are in the $1500-$2000 range, these summer discounts clearly indicate Norwegian Air wants a piece of the lucrative air traffic into Milan and Rome. You may not be aware, but Italy comes in at Number five on the list of the world's most popular tourist destinations just behind Paris, New York, China and Spain.

Some suggestions to stay abreast of discounted Airfare offers to Italy, register to receive fare alerts to and from your closest International Airport to Italy at:

Another point of information, you can save a few hundred dollars if you opt for a stop-over instead of a direct flight to Italy. Schedule the stop-over to allow enough time for a few fun hours of sightseeing if you are in one of the many fascinating European capitals such as Lisbon, Istanbul or Moscow. Enjoy the day, your luggage has already been checked through to your final destination--Italy.

Happy Fare Hunting!
