DISCOVER THE NEW AMAZING GAY TOURS!
ABOUT THE CITY... Rome is the capital and largest city of Italy. Known as the ‘Eternal City’, Rome is one of the world’s most visited tourist destination. Its historic city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with famous landmarks, grand palaces, ancient churches, ruins, statues and fountains. Rome is also recognised as one of the fashion capitals of the world, with a growing nightlife scene. The gay scene in Rome is not yet as ‘out in the open’ as in other European capitals – partly due to the influence of the Catholic Church. However, times are changing and, as in many other European countries, a new generation of gay men has emerged.

Tivoli & Roman Villas (from Rome)
After breakfast meeting with our LGBT Friendly Driver and departure to Tivoli and discover two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Villa d’Este and Hadrian’s Villa. Visit the Renaissance Villa d'Este was built in the 1550s for Cardinal Ippolito d'Este, the son of Lucretia Borgia. Built over a Benedictine convent, the palace was intended for entertaining and contains lavishly frescoed reception rooms. The main attraction for visitors, however, is the breathtaking garden. Designed to impress the Cardinal's guests, the Villa d'Este's gardens are composed almost exclusively of water features and precious fountains. After lunch on your own, continue with the Villa Adriana, a undescribable place. The Emperor Hadrian conceived a countryside dwelling here that would by normal standards be considered a town. A gigantic complex with underground service passages big enough for vehicles (tantalising glimpses are still visible), the Villa incorporates lakes, fountains, libraries, baths, temples and gardens. The area covered is staggering, and highly confusing even when armed with a map; it's easy to imagine the emperor himself asking for directions. Afterwards transfer back to Rome.
