Gay & Lesbian

All roads lead to Rome – the gay ones too!

Despite Italy’s reputation as a homophobic country which indeed is true in many ways, Rome does have something to offer to LGBT visitors besides its museums and cultural venues. The local scene is relatively small when compared to other capital cities, but still very vibrant and most importantly - on the rise!

Not your typical Gay Village – Italy’s largest LGBT festival!

In summer, Gay Village takes over a huge site of historic parkland and transforms it into an outdoor entertainment complex with bars, two dance floors, an open-air gym, an exhibition space and an outdoor cinema. There's live music, theatrical performances, film screenings and a whole lot more!
