With Some Effort, You Can Save Hundreds

As I predicted, low-cost airlines are starting to pop-up now that the traditional airlines have gotten greedy.   Two of my favorites are Icelandair and Norwegian Airlines.   Icelandair has the feature of a "free" stopover in Reykjavik on any of their flights.

Another strategy is to fly into cities where there is competition for flights by discount carriers.  Even if you don't want to take a discount carrier, the "big boys" have reduced their fares in order to compete.  Some of these cities that are much more expensive to fly into are Copenhagen (CPH), Oslo (OSL), and Milan (MXP).   If you can fly into these airports and find a quick way to get to your destination, you will save hundreds.  For instance, I have a trip coming up starting in Naples.   I saved $600 by flying into Milan and taking the 4 hour train to Naples.   Since my flight arrives in Milan at 7 am, I get to Naples (then on to Sorrento) just in time to check in.

Trieste VisitThere is much more to Italy than Rome, Florence, and Venice.  We do recommend visiting those three cities if you have never been to Italy before.  However, there is so much more to explore.  In between trips to Croatia, we had the opportunity to go up to Trieste, very close to the Croatia and Slovenia border. Although we spent only a short time there, we found it to be a refreshing and most enjoyable way to experience Italy.  Read about our short visit to Trieste in today's blog post.
