Best time to buy airline tickets to Italy for summer travel?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Italy during high season (late June or July) and I am reeling from the airfares I am seeing, having always before traveled in the off season. My goal is to fly non-stop from Philadelphia to Rome and return out of Milan. I read recently that when booking flights within the U.S., Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best times to check prices as that is when the specials are posted. Saturdays/Sundays are the worst days. So far, I have not seen any intelligence on timing a European ticket purchase (other than a friend suggesting that they tend to go down in March - on what this is based I have no idea). So, Fodorites, can you provide guidance? The travel will involve 2 adults and a child in her own seat (which I mention because I have heard that booking more than 2 people can put you in a more pricey bracket, leading to advice to book 2 tickets first and then a 1). Thanks in advance.
