There are still some conservative sides in Rome due to the influence of the Catholic Church, but this exhilarating spectacle is developing day by day when it comes to gay acceptance. Truth be told, this vibrant city is ideal for romance as the Renaissance architecture and the opulent monuments inflame the soul of any visitor with nostalgic and inspiring feelings.
Walking is the best way to get around Rome, especially romantic walks to the Colosseum, the Vittoriano street or the Via del Corso shopping area. Every corner has hidden treasures and a vibrant street life to amplify the effect of the cosmopolitan atmosphere. Archeological sites and bourgeois palaces adorn the historical heritage of Italy where everything can happen.
In Rome all the gay venues can be found on the ''Gay Street''. The colourful gay nightlife is a must especially on weekends when all then fancy parties are organised. Fridays nights are best for the big party in Muccassassia, while on Saturdays gay gatherings happen almost everywhere. Gay venues like Coming Out, GIAM@Planet and K Men are the main attractions in the gay street, but they are not the only ones. Befriend a local and learn their secret hideouts.
Most travellers prefer Rome for its millennia-long elements of power and culture, the ornate statues and its inspiring artistic side. Fill your soul with the unique atmosphere of Renaissance elements all over the city and trigger your inner artist.
