Stuck for a Father’s Day gift idea? Running out of time to plan something in time for Sunday? If your dad is getting a bit fed up of receiving packets of plain black socks every Father’s Day, then why not get him a gift that he’ll never forget. Take a look at some of our suggestions below and start planning a city break that he’s sure to love.
The capital of Bavaria, Munich is a great city to take your dad for a short break. Germany has a great reputation of being a beautiful, pristine and well-organised country, and Munich is no exception to the rule. Explore the many museums and beer halls or simply watch the world go by at the Marienplatz. If your dad is the adventurous type, book yourselves on a city Segway or bike tour.
What will dad love? The beer!
It’s almost impossible to know where to start with a city break to Rome. How can one city have so much to see? Imagine yourself amongst the Roman crowd on a tour of the magnificent Colosseum, picture chariots racing around the Circus Maximus, climb the Spanish Steps and guarantee your next trip to Rome by tossing a coin over your shoulder in to the Trevi Fountain. Make sure you fit in a tour of the Vatican too!
What will dad love? The history!
Portugal‘s capital city, Lisbon is the sunniest capital in Europe, making it the perfect city location to soak up the sun and explore the surroundings with dad. There are endless museums, attractions and historical sights to discover, such as the Jeronimos Monastery, the Belem Tower and St. George’s Castle. The best thing about Lisbon is the variety of tours you can join in order to see them all!

If you really want to spoil dad and take him a little further afield than Europe, then the Big Apple is a great shout. Take a boat trip to the Statue of Liberty, get a head for heights at the top of the Empire State Building, ride on a horse and cart around Central Park or absorb the sights and sounds of Times Square. If you want a real treat, take to the skies on a helicopter ride and experience Manhattan from up above!
What will dad love? The vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere!
