Why It’s a Deal According to a recent search on Kayak, the lowest round-trip fare between Boston and Venice for travel in late March was $847, including taxes (Delta). Add $524 per person for seven nights at Hotel Olimpia, and your total for airfare, accommodations, and hotel taxes is $1,371 when booked independently. For $276 less, this package includes airfare, accommodations, daily breakfast, round-trip transfers between Venice and Cortina, and all taxes and fees.
More Add a six-day Dolomiti Superski pass, valid at Cortina and 34 surrounding ski resorts—including more than 700 miles of ski trails—for $287 per person. Additional hotel nights are not offered because extending your stay beyond the included seven nights would drastically increase the cost of the package.
