Fly to Rome for $600 round-trip

But today there's been a break in the pattern of super expensive airfares with deals from USAirways.

Plan to start a trip across the pond on or before March 18 to qualify for the following rates:

- $218 Madrid, Spain

- $279 Frankfurt or Munich, Germany

- $289 Brussels, Belgium

- $370 Amsterdam, Netherlands

Give at least a two week advance purchase notice. Stay a weekend to 30 days. Depart Sundays-Thursdays and return Mondays-Thursdays. Other days are $20 more each way.

Taxes, fees and surcharges are in most cases higher than the actual airfare. Add roughly $400 to the above rates for a complete price.

Buy tickets through Feb. 11.
