Looking for a reason to skip on over to Italy? How about a flight that’ll cost you less than $340 roundtrip — with dates available over Thanksgiving? Skip the turkey and thank us later with a plate of penne pasta.
First noted by Scott’s Cheap Flights, you’ll find these rates from a variety of airports, though the cheapest routes take off from New York (JFK). Let’s take a look at the details.
Fare Deal — Details
If there is a route you’re looking to book, you’ll want to act quickly. We don’t expect this pricing to last.
- Class: Economy
- Routes: Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Washington D.C. (IAD), Newark (EWR), San Francisco (SFO) to Milan (MXP)
- Dates: October 2022 to May 2023

You’ll find a few different operators for these flights depending on your departure airport. The cheapest rates, which will run you just $331 roundtrip, are flown by low-cost Italian airline Neos — and they’re nonstop:
Otherwise, you can fly with Star Alliance carrier TAP Portugal, which includes a stopover in Lisbon or Madrid. These fares are much more widespread.
Finally, those on the West Coast want to be on the lookout for discounted flights from Oneworld carriers British Airways and American Airlines. We found rates as low as $460 roundtrip from San Francisco (SFO) during Valentine’s Day.
Best Ways To Book
Because this is a cash ticket, you’ll want to use a credit card that’ll maximize the points that you earn. If you’re booking via a third party, opt for cards such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which will earn you 3x Ultimate Rewards per $1 spent on all travel. We value Chase points at 2.0 cents each, meaning you’ll net a 6% return on all bookings when using this card.
If, instead, you opt to book directly with the airline, you’ll want to whip out a card like The Platinum Card® from American Express. This card earns 5x Membership Rewards per $1 spent on all tickets booked directly with the airline (up to $500,000 per year). We value Amex points at 2.2 cents each, meaning that if you used this card, you’d be getting an 11% return on your booking.Hot Tip: Trying to figure out when to plan your visit?
