Let me say at the top, this is not a sponsored post. I don't know anyone at Gate 1 Travel and they don't know me. What I do know and what you probably know about me, is that I love Italy. I always have my eye out for reasonable airfares and deals to get my American tucas on Italian soil.
So, the other day I was scrolling through the emense dumpheap of email that I get every day and a Gate 1 Email caught my eye. I am too lazy to opt out of anything, so the quantity of promotional email that I get, fills my mailbox to the top about every week or so.
I have a friend at work who told me about the great rates that this Gate l had to Italy, so I have been monitoring it. What I saw on this most recent email seemed too good to be true. It had an offer for 8 days in Tuscany with hotel, airfare and rental car for $699 a person. I re-read it half a dozen times because I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Airfare to Italy from NY is generally around $1200. That's airfare alone. With a lot of homework and shopping, you can get a flight for around $1000, and that takes a lot of work. $699 from soup to nuts? It just seems unbelievable.
So, this company had a trip to Tuscany that costs less than a trip to Florida. The problem is, I can't go due to work and it is burning me up. It seems almost like a crime to miss out, so I am doing the best thing I can think of as an alternative and passing the information on to you.
Below, you will find both the link to the offer.
I hope that this helps someone discover Italy and fall in love with it like I did. Ciao, bella!
