Cheapest way would be with Ryan Air... as for Train I believe a single train pass can get you to all those places.

I don't know enough about traveling in Europe to be much help, just wanted to say this would be like my dream trip. Hopefully you can get the logistics worked out :)

Yeah .. I am looking into Ryan Air ... I was hoping someone here who are local and help with which best way to get around ... like from London to Paris .. it's better by train since you get off in downtown area rather than going to the airport and wait and all that .. airport is usually away from the city so it's like another hour trip each time. Thx ya'lll.

When is your trip? Here my suggestion:

Flight: USA -- Amsterdam
Flight: Amsterdam -- Berlin
Flight: Berlin -- London
Train: London -- Paris (Takes you about 2 hours on the Train and will take you into Central Paris)
Flight: Paris -- Lisbon
Flight: Lisbon -- Barcelona
Flight: Barcelona -- Rome
Flight: Rome -- Athen

Flying is the fastest way, but the trips to the airports where those "Cheapo" Airlines (they are good, nothing to worry about) are landing can be pricey.
For example: London -- Berlin

To get from Central London to Stansted Airport (London's Airport where all those discounter flights are) you will need to pay at least £40 - £50 for a cab, unless you go by bus, but I do not consider bus as a "fast" way. Cab takes about 40min, and bus around 2 hours which would make a big difference in the overall travel time. Well, landing in Berlin you need to get from there to the city as well.
Just bare in mind that Discounter flight themselves are cheap, but the location of the airports are normally much further away then the normal airlines.

So please do not just take the cheapest flight from Ryan Air/Easy Jet/AirBerlin and consider also the other airlines. You need to look on the maps where those airports are.
