Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest nonstop multicity airfare between New York City, London, and Rome, starts from $838 in mid-January (Delta Airlines). Add to that $201 per person including taxes for three nights at the Ambassadors Hotel, $228 per person including taxes for three nights at the Kyriad Bercy Village, and $174 per person including taxes for three nights at Hotel Portamaggiore, and you're already spending $1,441. You would also have to pay $63 per person for the one-way train ride between London and Paris including Chunnel fees and $162 per person for the one-way flight between Paris and Rome (on SAS), bringing your total to $1,666.
