If you’re looking for a cheap getaway to Europe this summer, treat yourself to all the pizza, Peroni and evening piazzas you can possibly fit into a trip to Italy. We’re seeing flights from as little as £26 return — even in August.

Another advantage with going to Italy right now is that the government has banned all overhead bin storage on flights to and from the country, meaning that if you’re flying Ryanair, you get to check your cabin bag for free, as long as it fits with the airline’s size restrictions. Additionally, given that Italy is on the U.K. government’s travel corridor list, you won’t have to quarantine for 14 days on return to England.

There are a variety of destinations up for grabs at great prices for summer months. Choose from Pisa (PSA), Venice (VCE), Palermo (PMO), Rome (CIA) and Olbia, Sardinia (OLB) — all for less than £70 return.
