We fly to Florence going through Paris round trip for 460 dollars. That was on Northwest and it's international affiliate. Seems the cheapest flights are through Amsterdam too though... all four of us got flights for 487 round trip to AMS. Shiphol. Oh, Delta is always higher in my experiences with them but they are trying to compete with cheaper airlines so.. go to their website and look for deals if you are just dead set on AirFrance/Delta.

Yes, but Jenaflix, didn't you say on another post that you went last March to Florence? That is in no way comparable to the OP's time period in question!

Hi wl,

You have a fairly good price.

My estimate is a 60% chance of dropping $100 and a 40% chance of going up $50 between now and the end of March.

You have a very fair price for that time of year.

Hi there,
I say grab the tickets and run!! I live in Western Canada and paid $1562.50 USD when I bought in January (trip is in May) I could have had tickets for $1198. USD if I had taken a risk and bought non- refundable, no cancellation etc. You are lucky that you have so many carriers and competition. This helps keep your prices so much lower.
