Fly Delta Air Lines from Motown to the Eternal City

I’ve just unearthed some great news for Detroit residents who have been harbouring a desire to see the wonders of Rome in Italy.

Delta Air Lines has just started running direct flights between Motown and Italy’s eternally famous city.

Sometimes actually getting to Italy can be a wee bit arduous for people over in the USA, what with fiddly stop-overs in other European airports, but now, in one, albeit long, hop, Motown folks can be roaming around the delights of Rome much more easily.  And this non-stop flight should help those travelling with small children considerably.

This means Motown residents can consider Rome as a much more realistic vacation destination, which, in my book, is great news!

Of course, there is more to Italy than just Rome.  Rome makes a wonderful starting point for exploring the likes of Tuscany, Abruzzo, Umbria, and elsewhere.  Then there are delights such as the glorious islands of  Capri and Ischia. Do not forget Pompeii either – one of my favourite places in Italy.

In the same area as Pompeii, there is the stunning Amalfi coastline which is not that difficult to reach from Rome.  Curious Motowners will find flight times if they read on.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

The new Delta Air Lines scheduled service takes off from Detroit Metro Airport at 7.45 p.m. and touches down the next day in Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport at 10:45 a.m. the next day.

It is probable that those from Detroit in Southeast Michigan will want to return home at some point, in which case, they can hop on the 12:45 p.m. flight from Rome which will land them at Detroit Metro Airport at 5:20 p.m.

Here is a link to Delta Air Line’s web site, just in case someone might like book a non-stop flight to Rome. 😉

There, I hope this news might brighten up some people’s weekend.
