Most of you will watch the Sochi Olympics from home, but have you ever wondered how much it would cost to see some of the action in person?
   
We checked out the prices of flights, hotels and tickets and here's what we found.

We'll start with flights and it's not cheap or easy to get to Sochi. The least expensive flight I could find was out of O'Hare in Chicago. It takes more than 17 hours over 2 days to get there at a price of $1,647 per ticket.
     
Now that we're there, we need a place to stay and prices for hotels are all over the place. I found the Calypso Hotel in Sochi for just over $500 for the week. If you want something a little more high end,  there's the Sochi Beach Hotel, which is right along the coastline of the Black Sea. That will set you back almost $3,200 for the week. If you really want to splurge, there's the Mishilen Hotel for just over $5,200 for a seven night stay.
   
Of course, you'll also want to see a few events while you're there. Hockey fans, you'll shell out more than $1,100 for the prime seats for the gold medal game. Figure skating is a bit more affordable, with the best seats for the free skates coming in at $754 each.
   
If you want to head up into the mountains, you can get an even better deal. Many of the best alpine skiing tickets cost $130 but the best deals, are for the sliding sports bobsled, skeleton and luge, those cost just $15.
