If you thought an Italian vacation was out of your budget, think again: Norwegian Air will soon offer nonstop flights to Rome for less than the cost of most hotel rooms. According to Condé Nast Traveler, the airline will soon offer one-way, nonstop flights from Newark, Los Angeles, and Oakland, Calif., for as low as $189.

Yes, you read that right: You could fly to Rome’s Fiumicino Airport and back for less than $400. The first flights will begin on Nov. 9 from Newark Airport, and just two days later, the airline will launch flights from L.A. starting at $229 each way. Bay Area residents can start taking advantage of the inexpensive airfare in February 2018.

So how exactly is Norwegian Air able to offer these great deals? Well, you’ll be flying on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, a large energy-efficient aircraft that helps to keep the costs down. But, like many budget airlines, you’ll be paying extra for things like seat assignments, checked and carry-on bags, and in-flight dining.

For those willing to splurge, Norwegian will offer premium cabin seats starting at $539 one-way from Newark and $719 one-way from the West Coast.
