    Flight to Italy

    The whole international shipping thing got me going on really finding some airfair trends for my trip in the fall to italy.

    Anyone have much experience in the last few years flying over there? Prices are quadruple what I paid in 08.

    We are heading out there around sept 15 and returning the 30th (dates Flexible)

    Want to hit Rome, Florence, Venice, Capri, Naples

    So my questions:

    How many months in advance does airfare become the cheapest on average?
    What is the cheapest Airport to fly into? (Marco Polo, Bologna, Leonardo)
    Any cheap hotels anyone can recommend in the cities listed?

    Any help is appreciated!

    We have been researching for about the last 2 months and cant seem to find a decent flight under 1300. Flights last year in Sept were about 950. But I am not sure when those flights were purchased though. Can't seem to find reliable data and the AAA travel agent is less than useless.

    Anyone ever fly Air Berlin through Germany???

    Just booked a flight for 850!!! 400 cheaper than any flight.

    Reviews look good....any first hand experience?

    The old guy across the street from me helped put Air Berlin out of business. But that was 70 years ago.
    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened

    If the pilot has any semblance of a swastika on his uniform the trip is CANCELLED! I just couldnt pass on the price. 6 tickets at 850 vs 1400 is huge savings.
