Going to Venice next June. When is the best time to buy plane tickets?

Cruise and hotel are booked, all that's left to do is buy a flight. (IAD-VCE, June 2012.) At the moment the cheapest airfares are hovering around $1400-$1600, some with annoying day-long layovers in out-of-the way cities like Istanbul or Moscow. Do US-to-Italy airfares get any better at a point closer to next summer, or is this as good as I'm going to get?
(I've also tried booking separate legs to various European cities, then connecting to a train low-cost carrier or train, and the savings so far have not been considerable.)
