Tip of the week: You can save money traveling to Europe by flying to a secondary city. But you have to pack light or you'll get socked by extra baggage fees. You can fly into Milan, instead of Rome, and then take the train and save thousands. Go to Google Flights and put in your departure city. Then you'll get a map that shows you different destinations and prices. Kayak does it too. Also plan to leave plenty of time in between flights. Even spend the night. Another great flight is Fly 4 Free.
