Eurofly is a discount airline that flies between New York City and Rome, Naples, and other Italian cities. All of its flights are nonstop on new Airbus 330-200 planes. Beginning this month, Eurofly is offering vacation packages, such as a four-night air/hotel package that starts at $680 per person after taxes. You'll find Eurofly fares and vacation packages only at euroflyusa.com—not through Web travel agencies, such as Orbitz, or meta-search websites, such as Kayak.
