I see that airfare isn't part of this package. Do you offer airfare deals? How are airport to hotel transfers arranged? Will there be specific times you must arrive?

Hello Jennie, yes you are correct that we do not include the airfare in this package. When we offer one of our premium cooking vacations on Groupon, we try to give people as many date options as possible. The main reason for that is due to the limited number of rooms in the Palazzo. Since you can book between March and November, 2013â€¦thereâ€™s absolutely no way to negotiate discounted airfare for an entire year. Thatâ€™s why we do not include airfare in our packages. As for the roundtrip transfers from the airport to the Palazzo, we do provide that as part of your package. We will pick you up on Sunday around Noonâ€¦and take you back to the airport in Rome (FCO) on the following Saturdayâ€¦again, around Noon. So you would need to arrange your flights to accommodate our pick-up and return times. Most people fly out on Saturday afternoon and arrive into Rome early Sunday morningâ€¦between 8 AM and 10 AMâ€¦leaving enough time for customs. Your flight out the following Saturday should be in the afternoonâ€¦no earlier than 2 PM. I hope this helps you plan your trip so that you can join us in this fabulously edible destination!
