My friends and I are trying to plan a spring break trip. We are going to Dublin for St Patricks and then want to make it from Dublin to Santorini, Greece, then end our trip by returnign to Rome, where we are studying abroad for the semester...what is the cheapest way to do this? We are looking at all sorts of crazy flight plans but not coming up with anything in our price range. Any recommendations?
i found a flight from London-Heathrow to Athens for about 144 pounds return leaving at the end of this month (BA.com)
What dates u needeing to be in Greece and Rome? How long u spending in Dublin?
Found this flight from Dublin to Rome
RYANAIR: 29.99 EUR Wed, 22 Mar (one way)
I then checked Alitalia for round trips from Rome to Greece - Where is Santorini? is it near Athens? Prices are about 140 Pounds (250$) Including tax from Roma to Athens roundtrip. Let me know exact dates and how flex u are - i can look up - im also goin to Greece at same time so im lookin for my own tickets so its not a problem.
also - sorry for my THIRD post - but why is it titled "England" to Greece? did i miss part of the itinerary?
hey thanks for all the info so far. The reason it said England to Greece is because when I was making the post we were looking at taking a ferry to England and flying out of there instead because we thought it may be cheaper. That may be a negative, though. Here are our dates: Leave Dublin March 20(or 21) for Greece. (This part is really up in the air: anything from Ireland or England is fine and any date near Monday the 20th is also fine.) Leave Greece March 25 Sunday for Rome. Also, Santorini is an island (also known as Thira) which is about a 9 hour ferry from Athens. Flying directly to the Thira Airport would be preferable, but not a requirement.
This forum rocks! Thanks so much for the help!

From there i asked a greek friend, he suggested Ferry is the best route. Also said the best way to Italy is by ferry as well.
hope this helps!
Jeff you rock. thanks so much!
One more thing...how do you find ferry prices? I was looking online and all the sites I could find were totally confusing/unhelpful. I couldnt really find many prices or routes.
I know - ferry info is never as easy as plane info - maybe best to show and ask. or try this site. theres a few phonenumbers u can call
theres also a Santorini section as well
and a forum so u may wanna get on there and ask around
