Everyone knows the stories of madcap flight prices to London in the bad old days of the 1980s - but what many forget is that a return flight to Rome would often set you back what a trip to New York would cost nowadays.

Luckily, prices to one of the world's most beautiful countries have come down - and a holiday in Italy may be cheap, but it's still classy.

If you fancy visiting this year, you'd better hurry as Topflight's May Madness sale - with savings of up to €400 per person or €1,100 per family - ends this Thursday.

The Hotel Bristol is the jewel in the crown of stunning Sorrento. It's a great base for other classy resorts like Positano or Capri, a trip into underrated Naples, or a day at Pompeii, it's reduced in price from €1,199 to €799, flying out on May 28.

 Lake Garda is stunning, and the four-star Bella Italia campsite is a firm favourite with Irish families. A week there for two adults and two children has been reduced from €2,796 to €1,596 departing Ireland on May 23.

Hotel stays in the resort of Torbole on the lake are also available.

And the seaside town of Lido Di Jesolo - a great base for visiting Venice - is down from €687pp (half board) to €449.

Other destinations include the Adriatic Riviera, Sorrento and Sicily, with flights from Dublin, Cork or Belfast City Airport.
