This just in: Sceptre Tours is running a special on a six-night Rome vacation -- including airfare from New York -- for just $699 per person. What's more, this price is even valid over the typically jacked-up Thanksgiving holiday. To put this into perspective, airfare alone is running at almost $1,000 roundtrip right now. The Sceptre package also includes six nights at the Alba Hotel and breakfast.
Visit Sceptre.com for more details of call Sceptre directly at 800-901-4042; taxes of up to $150 per person. Sale ends Sept. 30, but my guess is the best dates will sell out way before then.
