We traveled in mid november to Italy. Expect the weather to be colder and wet during the times listed for this deal. That said, we never waited in line and enjoyed the more authentic experience of travel in the off season.

Also, like all other flight deals dealing the Air Emirates, you have to fly in/out of Newark and finding cheap/direct flights to that airport are few and far between.

Still a good price overall, even with the supplement for airfare. Flying from my home airport, this price basicly gave me a free rental car for the price I paid last year.

Whay would I want to go to Italy in the coldest months of the winter?
Obviously you must have missed a couple of winter olympics...
March 22 is spring break in some places and Easter week. Not a bad time to visit Italy's artistic towns. Not very crowded and avoid the summer heat.

I've always flown out of JFK when flying Emirates to Milan.

Milan is boring as hell, but $450 for Emirates and hotel stay is hot. Ever since they closed that McDonalds, there's no where to hang out.

If you're interested in skiing in Italy, check out Cortina d'Ampezzo. Ski destinations in Colorado (Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek, etc.) are modeled similarly to Cortina and other towns in that region of Italy.

Ever heard of Cortina?

Sestriere?
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/9912884...c-resorts/

Sestriere is technically France, but on the western border of Italy. Get off the plane in Milan. Start traveling West via Torino and you'll pass through some of the best and most beautiful ski resorts, for any type of skiing you are into..

You were kidding, right?

Prices and dates will vary, but I did a quick search for a rental starting March 1st. IMHO, the way to go is the $449/person and reserve a rental out of Malpensa. Using Kayak, I found a rental, total is $108, unlimited mileage, VAT included, road tax and snow chains included for a Fiat Punto.

Italy is small! If you reserve a hotel on the Southside of Milan, you can easily day trip to Montecatini and see the coast along the way. Plenty of scenic places to stop along the way!

Friendly warning: Traveling the Autostrada can be a liberating experience but Italy is finally enforcing their radar trap zones. These zones are easily identified in advance by large white signs with a picture of a policeman holding a radar gun. SLOW TO POSTED SPEED LIMIT! You won't get pulled over, you'll get a letter explaining you owe the Italian Authorities a STIFF FINE! Ignore it and it doubles..

That said, I've been seeing more and more inner city, random radar traps and forced stops by the Carabinieri. Make sure you have your U.S. driver's licenses and everyone has their passports in hand. They'll probably search the car so if you are unfortunate enough to get caught up in one of these random checks, relax.

Unfriendly Warning: The cops in Italy DO NOT have patience for people exercising their 1st Amendment right. Probably because THEY DON'T HAVE TO! You fall under Italian law. Stop when they tell you to stop. They are authorized to shoot you if you attempt to blow by and ignore their commands.

Not trying to scare anyone, that's just how things are over there now. Still, a very worthwhile deal!

Will they pull me over if I'm dressed like Mario and my boy Luigi is next to me?
Jokes aside - solid advice! Reps!
