Italy Vacation Bundle

Hello there.

You might already be aware that throughout this week, I’ll be posting vacation bundles of popular destinations for Eid Al Adha, including:

Each vacation bundle post will include flight and hotel options for 2 people, so you can choose what suits you best. All vacation bundles run for the period of 4 to 11 September 2017 (8 days in total).

Again, before we go any further, here are a few important notes:

  • I am not sponsored or affiliated with any party mentioned in this post
  • This post was written out of my own interest in travel, and the desire to share this interest with as many people as possible
  • All hotels recommended in this post are options that I would personally consider when travelling
  • Prices indicated in this post might change from the time of posting
  • Don’t rely solely on information in this post
  • Make sure you verify all information, terms and conditions before making any bookings

Now that the intro is out of the way, let’s talk Italy. This post will look at both Rome and Milan. Tickets are still reasonably priced, but quality accommodation options are drying up fast, especially Milan. If you’re intent on going to Italy during Eid, I’d recommend booking your accommodation pretty soon.

 

Itinerary

4 September 2017: Bahrain (BAH) to Rome (ROM)

3 nights in Rome

7 September 2017: Rome to Milan

4 nights in Milan

11 September 2017: Milan (MXP or BGY) to Bahrain (BAH)

 

 

Flight Options

  • Pegasus: BD 203/person
  • KLM: BD 256/person
  • Etihad: BD 260/person

Flight options are still pretty reasonable. For convenience’s sake, the inbound flight is to Rome, and the return flight has been set out of Milan. Pegasus is the cheapest option, but there are two things to consider:

  • The ticket includes only carry-on luggage
  • The inbound flight to Bahrain flies out of Orio al Serio, which is further away than Milan’s main airport Malpensa Airport

All things considered, I’d prefer shelling a little bit extra for Etihad just for convenience.

 

 

Rome Accommodation Options
