Find the cheapest flight to Italy

Italy regularly tops the list of the most popular countries in the world to visit, but it also has the distinction of being more expensive to fly to than other popular countries in Western Europe. Getting cheap flights to Paris, London, and even Amsterdam – especially from overseas – is often much easier than finding cheap flights to Italy.

The reason for this isn’t entirely clear, but it means that if you’re having trouble finding cheap flights to Italy for when you want to go, you might need to get more creative with your searches. This includes looking for the cheapest tickets you can find to any big hub in Europe, and then looking for cheap airfare on a budget airline to where you really want to go in Italy. This requires more attention to schedules, but it can sometimes save you quite a bit of money.
