Naples Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Naples for Gay travellers


Gay Holidays in Naples, Italy

Naples, an Italian town with liberal character, is a charming destination for gay couples in love and for gay singles who want to meet gay locals and tourists. Having the largest historic city centre in Europe and a rich Neapolitan culture, makes it especially ideal for gay travellers looking for quality and sophisticated holidays.

This town is the regional capital of Campania, the oldest continuously inhabited urban area in the world and one of the 3 largest cities in Italy. The Greeks and Romans affected much the whole mentality of Naples and thats why its a fascinating destination to visit as the town has many authentic places, colourful exuberance and an amazing nightlife.

The incredible architecture, the fascinating museums, the great shopping experience and the palatable food choices all compensate for the modest gay scene Naples has. The gay atmosphere in Naples is reserved compared to Milan and Rome but the romantic element is so vibrant and heartwarming that any gay couple will surely want to visit this city.

Even though the gay life is not as organised as it should be, there are still some great gay venues for you to explore. Depot Napoli and Macho Lato are some exclusively gay cruising clubs while for those interested in rejuvenating experiences with interesting people the Blue Angels gay sauna is what you need. Keep your ears open because Naples is known for frequently organising wild parties like the Criminal Candy ones that will literally boost your whole experience in Naples!

Gay Tips

Nowadays, the gay acceptance is in continuous growth with the same-sex sexual activity being legal since 1890, while same-sex civil unions have been recognized in Italy since 5 June 2016, providing same-sex couples with most of the legal protections enjoyed by married couples.

Naples’ biggest event of the year is the Napoli Pride which is held each May.

Naples hosts a small inclusive gay scene as the majority of clubs, bars and cafes are known to have a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Piazza Bellini is a good starting point to discover the gay bars, cafe and saunas of Naples that are concentrated around the gay district of the Piazza.

Criminal Candy is the biggest gay house & pop dance party in Naples taking place in various venues!

There are two gay cruising clubs in Naples called "The Basement Napoli" and "Depot Napoli". Both of them feature themed nights & events like naked nights, total black nights, and more.
