One of the most important dates of the year is approaching. Father’s Day is celebrated on March 19., and the children who celebrate it in Spain have already set to work to surprise their loved ones with the best gifts. And what could be better than delighting them with a getaway?

According to a study by Skyscanner, the number of searches for flight reservations increased between March 17 and 20 of the same month, coinciding with this national holiday. Which destinations were travelers’ favorites this weekend? London and Rome.

If you’re one of those who will be traveling to either of these two cities, we at LOS40 have compiled some plans for you to take advantage of to get the most out of the experience. You can adapt it to the days of your stay and organize yourself as you see fit.

Rome, the queen of Father’s Day

The Italian capital is the one that leads the list of searches for flights on Father’s Day weekend. What can you do in this European city? Of course, toss your coin into the Trevi Fountain for it to fulfill your wishes. You can also visit the Roman Colosseum and Piazza Navona. Of course, you can also visit the Vatican, a unique and historical place. We recommend that you buy your tickets in advance so that you don’t miss these visits and avoid the queues.

As for gastronomy, Rome offers a wide and exquisite variety. Walking on Italy and not trying its pasta, ice cream and pizza could be considered a moral offence. Some outstanding restaurants in the city include Osteria Da Fortunata, Rione XIV, Pane e Salame, and fior Di Luna, among others.

London is always right

The second destination chosen to travel on Father’s Day weekend is the city of fish & chips. Indeed, sitting in one of its picturesque streets tasting this mythical dish of British gastronomy is something to put on your list. Besides visiting the most important points of the city, such as Tower Bridge, Big Ben, the London Eye, Picadilly Circus, Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, London offers a wide variety of places of interest. Although we can’t ignore the changing of the guard, which takes place at 11am during the chosen weekend.

London is full of parks to stroll through, as well as theaters and musicals to enjoy. You can also visit its museums. And it is that many of them are free, so you can get even closer to the culture of this city without spending a pound. Soho, China Town, Camdem Town and other places are also essential.
