You definitely don't remember the first time you met your dad, but he remembers the first time he met you. Dads are our role models, and on a day like Father's Day, it's important that we celebrate everything they've done from that first time they met us. Here's what you can do for Dad on this special day.

Cooking Class at EATALY


Traditionally, it's mom who cooks, right? Not these days. Treat dad to a cooking class the whole family can enjoy at EATALY where you'll learn how to become a master in the kitchen. Book a class to learn different dishes from traditional homemade pasta with sauce to other more intricate meals served in EATALY's restaurants. At the end, you'll get to eat it and toast to a glass of champagne, but even more fun, you'll be spending time cooking with the family.

Go to a Football Game

Maybe Dad hasn't had time to get to as many games as he anticipated this year. As football season is soon coming to an end, take him to a game before it's over. Whether he's a fan of Milan, Roma or Napoli, all teams have games at the end of the month, making this a perfect opportunity to spend some sports time with Dad. What better way to celebrate than by cheering for your favourite team?

Shopping on Montenapoleone

While balancing the many duties of life, fathers don't always have time for shopping. Maybe they pretend not to like it, but we know the truth. Spend some time in the sun strolling down Montenapoleone in Milan and enjoy the simplicity of walking and window shopping with Dad. As you pop in and out of stores, be sure to remind yourself that it's not every day you get to shop with dad. Perhaps, buy him something nice... and maybe something for yourself too.
