I am trying in earnest to find a decent priced airfare to Italy for the Heart of Italy tour, starting August 29th. Is it just too late to find a deal?
Initially, I was hoping to fly into London from Los Angeles on the first half of a round trip ticket . Then take a one way trip to Rome, then following the tour take another one way from Florence back to London. Then fly back on the second half of the round trip ticket back home- Los Angeles. When I price this, it is way more expensive than I thought it would be. (1,200 for RT LAX-LHR, and 150 each for the one way)
I tried another approach, where I tried one way tickets; LAX - FCO then FLR - LHR then LHR - LAX..... but EACH flight came up in the thousands!)
Maybe it's stick shock- but it all seems too much.
Can you give me an idea of what is normal. What are you expecting/have already paid?
Thank you travel buddies!
