One of the core practices of AuPACS is to optimize points and miles. Our team prides ourselves on being able to find the very best award redemptions for every person’s situation. To that end, there are usually no single best ways to get from Point A to Point B on a map. So, the team at AuPACS compiled a guide that describes the best ways to fly to Italy on points and miles. We look at three key currencies, but this is, by no means, an exhaustive list. There are plenty of other value-added methods to book flights to Italy on points and miles. 

Italy is possibly the epitome of a tourist hotbed. There are beautiful beaches along the Amalfi coast, excellent food culture in the entire country, and stunning architecture from the likes of the Colosseum and Leaning Tower of Pisa. With this much to see and do, it’s no wonder Italy is a highly sought out travel destination.

You’ll generally want to fly into Rome (FCO) or Milan (MXP) for nonstops. If you’re not departing from one of the major airports like JFK, LAX, or ORD, you will probably want to look into a positioning flight.

Let’s look at some of the options for all cabins, ranging from economy class to Emirates First Class Suites.
