Lufthansa has launched an attractive fare sale from the USA to it’s 17 destinations in Italy.  This particular sale runs between now and September 4 and is valid for travel between August 25 and October 26.

Personally this is my favorite time of year to travel to Europe and it’s when most of our trips take place.   What makes it my favorite time is that the late summer and early fall marks the end of the “High Summer” travel season.   Tourists, prices and temperatures recede creating a far more enjoyable atmosphere.

Over the last couple of years I’ve had the good fortune of visiting some of Italy’s greatest places.   We have experienced Venice, Rome, Vatican City (I know, technically not in Italy), Poveglia IslandSorrento, Capri, Naples (including a great visit to Pompeii) and other parts of the Amalfi coast (click each link for my trip reports).   Each of these cities and areas have unique experiences that await their visitors which makes Italy such a wonderful place to visit.   Every city and region has their own identity and culture!

Back to the Fare Sale…

Fares during this sale start as low as $1109 (Charlotte to Rome).  Fares from most other East Coast Lufthansa gateways range in the low $1200 range.   If you’re traveling from the West Coast, your fares will range between $1300 and $1369.   For you mileage junkies, the best value on a ‘cost per mile’ basis  would obviously come from starting your travels from the west coast.

You must depart between August 25 and  October 26, 2013
