Why It's a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest multicity airfare from New York to Venice and from Rome to New York starts from $1,236 with taxes for travel in late October and early November (Austria Airlines). Add to that $433 per person including tax for two nights at Hotel Amadeus, $71 per person for one night at NH Bologna de la Gare, $703 per person for four nights at Hotel Lorenzo il Magnifico, and $260 for two nights at Milton Roma Hotel, and you'd be paying $2,703 for just the airfare and accommodations. For $459 less than that, this package covers the flight and nine nights' hotel accommodations, plus daily breakfast, three rail transfers between cities, a departure transfer, an Uffizi Museum tour (a $95 value), a tour of Rome (a $85 value), and all taxes and fees. It also offers the added convenience of all-in-one booking.
More Extend your stay in Venice or Rome for from $125 per person per night, based on double occupancy. Several hotel upgrades are available. Many optional tours are available in each city for an additional fee; inquire at booking.
