Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest multicity round-trip airfare between New York City, Rome, and Venice starts from $893 in early April (Aer Lingus). Add to that $338 per person including taxes for four nights at the JSH Hotel Rome Villa Doria Pamphili, $313 per person including taxes for three nights at Hotel Silla, and $184 per person including taxes for two nights at Hotel Villa Rosa, and you're already spending $1,728 on airfare and accommodations alone. For $129 less, this travel package gives you airfare and nine nights in three Italian cities, plus second class rail between them, daily breakfast, and covers all taxes and fees.
