This gay group trip will show you some of the great historical sights of gay Italy. You’ll be travelling the Amalfi Coast and the Puglia region. Donatella Versace said that the best things about living in Italy are the art and the food. This trip will confirm that statement.
You’ll be welcomed at the airport by one of our representatives and transferred to your hotel. A welcome dinner will await you and you’ll be able to meet your fellow travellers.
On the second day, you’ll catch a scenic high-speed train to the city of Naples. From there our guide will take you for a tour of the city that includes lunch in a traditional pizzeria.
After the tour, you’ll head to the archaeological site of Pompeii – the ancient Roman city that was devastated in 79AD by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and engulfed in lava. Much of the city has therefore been preserved, giving us an unprecedented insight into what life was like in antiquity.
From there you’ll be taken to Positano, where you’ll be staying in a boutique hotel situated in the mountains. This hotel will be your base for the next few nights and you’ll enjoy a dinner with spectacular views of the coast.
On the third day you’ll make your way to Capri Island by ferry. You can walk through the hilltop town and public gardens. After lunch, you’ll board a private motorboat and explore the Blue Grotto, a famous sea cave.
In case of unfortunate weather conditions an alternative tour to Anacapri – the highest part of the island – will be arranged. In the evening, you’ll have the opportunity to explore Capri by yourself.
On the fourth day, you’ll take a guided tour of the Amalfi Coast that will shine a deeper light on the historical background of the area. It’s also one of Italy’s most iconic landscapes and protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We’ll be heading to Matera in Southern Italy. Here you’ll find the ancient Sassi homes, which are believed to be the oldest human settlements in all of Italy. You’ll stay in a hotel that served as a former church, displaying historical and archaeological sites within the building.
On the sixth day, you’ll take a guided walking tour around the city’s historical sites.
On the seventh day, you’ll make your way to Ostuni in the Puglia region of Italy. Ostuni is located on a hilltop and full history. You’ll explore its white buildings and ancient walls, plus scenic views across the Adriatic Sea. Here you’ll take a guided walking tour of the town, passing all the key sights such as Bishop’s Palace and the Cathedral. The evening is at leisure.
On the eighth day, you’ll visit the Castel Del Monte – a rare octagonal castle – which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back to the 13th century. After your visit, you’ll make your way to the port town of Trani where you’ll come across a synagogue established in the 12th century.
You’ll enjoy a lunch and a walk through the streets of this coastal town before returning to your hotel.
On the ninth day, you’ll travel to nearby villages such as Alberobello to see the ‘trulli’ style architecture. The peculiar cylinder buildings with cone-shaped roofs are a distinctive feature to the Monti district and date back to the 14th century. In the evening, you’ll come together with your fellow travellers for a farewell dinner in a classic Italian setting.
Today you will be transferred to Bari airport, ready to catch your departing flight home.
