Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare from New York City to Pisa starts from $1,027 in mid-November (Alitalia). A six-night stay at the Grand Hotel Plaza typically runs $734 per person, so you'd spend $1,761 on airfare and accommodation alone. For $302 less, this travel package gives you airfare and six nights in Italy, plus a seven-day car rental with unlimited mileage, daily breakfast, and most taxes and fees.
