You should in theory be able to do it in one step.

However, the 2.1.3->2.5.x is a simpler change and has been done by more 
people,  than the 2.5.x->3.0.3 step.

Therefore it might make life easier for you to go via 2.5 .

If you go via 2.5 you'll need to install or build Zope twice - 2.9.x to 
run Plone 2.5.x on, then 2.10.x to run Plone 3.0.x on. Thats a little 
extra work.

Bear in mind also that 3rd-party products you're using are more likely 
to have caught up with 2.5.x than 3.0.x

If I was in your position I would go to the latest 2.5.x now, and go to 
3.0.x in a few months time.
