At Hunter's high school graduation, Guy surprised his son with one of the best gifts: a one-month-long trip to Europe to discover all of its culinary treasures before Hunter enters college.

Here's one last family photo before Guy and Hunter leave for their epic journey.

On the first leg of their journey, the Fieri guys stop to visit the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, where a tour guide tells them the temple's history.

At Bairaktaris Tavern, the No. 1 gyro spot in all of Athens, open since 1879, Hunter gets a lesson in gyro carving and assembly from the owner while Guy watches proudly.

To give Hunter a true sense of what the local fisherman do every morning, Guy gets the two of them onto a local fishing boat in Crete, Greece. Hunter helps release the nets.

The best catch is a spiny lobster that will be dinner later that day.

On the dock, Guy and Hunter take a moment to grab a selfie in front of the beautiful harbor.

In Rome, it's the must-see first stop at the Colosseum.

Later the guys take a Vespa ride through the cobblestoned Roman streets.

Hunter gets a lesson in making the perfect cappuccino in Ciampini, a cafe in Rome. The uniform was a must.

Guy explores all the beautiful seafood at the Rialto Market in Venice, Italy, picking up some fish for dinner later. He points out the delicacies to Hunter.

Guy had a surprise for his son: a lesson in gondoliering from a true gondolier. Hunter's experience wouldn't be complete without the striped shirt.

In Murano, Hunter tries the art of glassblowing firsthand. After blowing a giant bubble, he shatters the glass.

Guy makes something a bit more practical, a goblet to bring back as a souvenir for his wife.

In Sesto Calende, Italy, Guy commandeers the grill at his cousin's house. Guy and Hunter prepare a dinner of grilled fish and Guy's signature cheeseburgers.

Guy presents his extended family with a family tree that traces the American Fieris back to the Italian Fieris.

Hunter goes wakeboarding on Lago Maggiore in Stresa, Italy, while his dad takes photos from the speedboat.

In Parma, the home of Parmigiano-Reggiano, Guy and Hunter get a lesson on how the cheese is made. They autograph a few wheels they hope to come back for in the future.

Hunter tests the doneness of one of the cheese wheels, listening for a uniform sound before it's opened.

At Salumificio La Perla, Hunter gets a demonstration on how to properly salt hams in preparation for making prosciutto di Parma.

A prosciutto maker shows Hunter how to use a horse tibia to test the doneness of the hams going through the two-year-long dry-curing process.  

While in Italy, the guys stop by the World Expo in Milan, checking out all the different national exhibitions, including the one from the United States.

Before leaving Italy, Guy buys his son a suit for college.

In Munich, Guy and Hunter head to Hofbräuhaus Kunstmühle to learn the old-fashioned art of pretzel making. Here, Guy tries to perfect his twist.

Fourth-generation pretzel maker and owner Stefan Blum shows the guys the drying process the pretzels go through before being baked.

Guy can't help but crack up when he sees his son decked out in traditional German lederhosen.

Father and son pose for a photo op after taking in the hilltop view of Paris from Sacre Coeur in Montmartre.

Guy tries biking hands-free as he and Hunter take a bike tour around the city of Paris, passing all the postcard sights.

At Boulangerie Du Pain et Des Idées in Paris, Guy and Hunter meet Chef-Owner Christophe Vasseur, who gives them samples of the croissants for which his bakery is famous.

Inside the kitchen, Chef Vasseur puts Hunter to work cutting dough into what will become croissants.

Guy and Hunter visit Vince Oisel, Guy's high-school friend, in Chantilly, France. Here, Guy and Vince reminisce over old photos from when Guy studied in France.

In London, the guys take in the sights atop a double-decker bus, passing by Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament.

Hunter gets a lesson in how to make perfect fish and chips from Chef-Owner Ahmet Ziyaeddin of The Rock & Sole Plaice, London's oldest fish and chips shop.

The guys try cooking naan in a traditional tandoor oven at The Punjab. Hunter, however, has trouble getting the dough to stick to the oven's wall.

In Spain, Guy's wife, Lori, and son Ryder join him and Hunter for the last stop on the trip. The family sits down to a paella dinner that Hunter made at A Casa Mia in Mallorca.

While enjoying a sunset on the beach in Mallorca, Spain, Guy shows Lori and Ryder photos from his and Hunter's unforgettable trip through Europe.

As the sun goes down behind him, Guy takes the opportunity to grab a selfie with his family.
