Why It's a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare from Boston to Florence starts from $823 with taxes for travel in mid-November (Alitalia). Add to that $188 per person, including tax, for four nights at Hotel Meridiana, and you'd be paying $1,011 for just the airfare and accommodations. For $62 more than that, this package covers the flight, four nights' hotel accommodations, daily breakfast, and all taxes and fees, and has the convenience of all-in-one booking.

More Additional activities are available for a fee, including a morning city tour of Florence that visits Piazzale Michelangelo, the Accademia di Belle Arti (to admire Michelangelo's David), and the Piazza del Duomo for $63 per person, and a tour to the gorgeous towns of Siena and San Gimignano in the Chianti area for $77 per person. Hotel upgrades are available from $30 per person. Extend your stay from $2 per person per night with a special.
