About Gay Rome

Gay Rome - City Guide

Read more about Gay Rome

Rome is one of the most popular cities in Europe. It was the capital of the Roman Empire and later the Papacy. Rome has been at the heart of so much history, both good and bad, throughout the ages. It’s like an open-air museum.

You’ll find a decent gay scene in Rome, although it’s smaller and more discrete than you might expect. You’ll find more clubs and late-night events than gay bars. The gay scene in Rome tends to pick up later at night.

You can build your whole Italy trip around Rome. You’ll want to explore The Colosseum, the Roman Forum and St Peter’s Square and Basilica. There’s Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. Not to mention the graves of Keats and Shelly – for literary buffs. You can also wine and dine in great style in Rome. This is a city you need to see at least once in a lifetime.
