Beginning in November, the budget airline will launch flights to the “Eternal City” from Newark, in the New York City area, and Los Angeles and Oakland, in California.

“Rome is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, and a favorite among Americans, so it was an obvious choice as we continue to expand our transatlantic presence,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s chief commercial officer, in a statement.
The new routes give travelers a cheap option to get to the city and see its most famous monuments, like the Colosseum or the Trevi Fountain. Rome is now the airline’s 13th European destination with nonstop service from the U.S.
As with all low-cost airlines, travelers should familiarize themselves with Norwegian Air's fees for services like seat assignments and meals ahead of booking.
