Hi ppl

I am planning a Euro trip starting from Chicago.
Chicago – Venice – Montreux – Bruges – Amsterdam – Chicago.

What’s the best/cheapest way to fly to Venice and back to Chicago from Amsterdam.\

Is there any specific city to/from where I need to book the tickets so that I can end up paying less. I am planning to travel via train between the cities.

Thanks Smile

I am leaving from chicago with $1000 for 8 days
Venice, Montreux, Bruges, Amsterdam

Cheapest would be to go in winter, but that’s not necessarily best.

BRU would also be on the route, so you could include that in airfare search; however, with only 8 days, AMS and VCE are good book-ends—I wouldn’t way to stray too far off course with such a limited amount of time.

Kayak and Cfares have good multi-city flight searches. You can also sign up for sale alerts on CHI-VCE, CHI-BRU, and CHI-AMS — because I don’t know of any flight alert that lets you set up multi-city itineraries, so you have to do each one. Airfarewatchdog, Bing travel, and Farecompare have good alert systems.
