Pack your bags, because it just got easier to take your dream Italian getaway.

United Airlines is launching daily, nonstop, seasonal service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Naples International Airport in Italy from May 22 through Oct. 26, Forbes reported, just in time for your spring, summer, and fall vacations.

And, lucky you, these actually happen to be the best times to visit Italy (not that there's a bad time).

Once the service begins, United will become the only airline to offer nonstop service between the U.S. and Naples, reps for the airline said in a statement, which is excellent news for people who are dreaming of relaxing on a beach on the Amalfi Coast but aren’t exactly thrilled at the idea of a long layover.

“Naples is a natural extension to our existing service to Italy and we are hopeful our customers will take advantage of this new access point to southern Italy,” United spokesperson Jonathan Guerin told Forbes.

United also flies to a number of other Italian destinations, including Milan, Rome, and Venice. Italy is considered the number one most desirable destination for many people around the world (but especially the U.S.), according to a new study from the travel website TravelSupermarket.
