Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest multicity round-trip airfare between Boston, Rome, and Venice starts from $974 in mid-February (United). Add to that $72 per person without taxes for two nights at Hotel Gabriella, $55 per person including taxes for one night at the Sangallo Park Hotel Siena, $38 per person including taxes for one night at Hotel La Pace, $65 per person including taxes for two nights at Hotel Montreal, $49 per person including taxes for one night at Hotel Porta Palio, and $75 per person including taxes for two nights at Hotel Vecellio Venice, and you're already spending $1,328. According to RailEurope.com, a rail pass that would cover the five train legs between cities would cost $284 per person, bringing your total without this package to $1,612. For $166 less, this travel package gives you the same perks, plus daily breakfast at the Siena, Pisa, and Venice hotels, and all taxes and fees.
