It was easy to schedule our tour. Everything was explained in great detail, so there was no confusion on the day of the excursion. The vans were spotless and comfortable. Our guide for the Colosseum was exceptional in every way. He was cute, knowledgeable, witty, flexible and engaging. We met so wonderful folks and shared a wonderful lunch with the guys from our group. Could not have been happier with Quiiky.read more

We had a fantastic tour of the Vatican with Paolo from Quiiky. Paolo was knowledgeable, personable, fun and really gave us a different insight into the history of art and the gay artists that are part of the Vatican's history and more! Highly recommended!read more

What an outstanding trip put together by Eduardo! The guides we had in both Rome (Ulisse) and Naples (Andrea) were absolutely excellent - they both were extremely knowledgeable and made the experience so much fun! Our hotel accommodations were excellent choices, and conveniently located to many things we wanted to see. The entire experience was highly enjoyable and we would recommend this company without reservation to anyone (gay or straight) looking for a uniquely tailored vacation experience.read more

Thanks Claudio for a great alternative tour of the Vatican. Having visited back in 1999 I wanted something a little different to do with my husband who had never visited before. It was busy but Claudio ensured we avoided as many crowds as we could and his insights made it a light hearted and fun morning, still with all the essential details you need to appreciate the artworks. It is great to see tour Quiiky offering tours with a twist and can most definitely recommend this one for your next visit to Rome.read more

We adored our Quikky tour of the Vatican with our guide Claudio. We had been a little apprehensive about visiting the Vatican but this tour is the way to go! Claudio had an expert knowledge of the art collection and we enjoyed hearing the "other", more scandalous stories of the private lives of Michelangelo and the popes. We loved our visit to the museums, Sistine Chapel, grotto and St Peters - I recommend joining the queue and adding on the view from the dome of the basilica - well worth the stairs!read more

First had a wonderful pre-cruise Quikky tour in Venice. Our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable, and a great deal of fun. Then I went on a tour of the Vatican and our tour guide was incredible. He is an expert on the Vatican and on the pertinent gay history (which turns out to be much more than you might even think). He literally made the Vatican come alive and provided one of the more fascinating tours I have taken anywhere. And the two wonderful owners of Quiiky picked us up and took us on a vehicular tour of Rome. Others got back from Rome complaining of the crowds and the heat... we got back energized, happy, and filled with fascinating information after an afternoon filled with fun and personalized care. Don't make the mistake thinking you will get an equivalent tour from a straight guide/company -- if you are gay, Quiiky is the way to go.read more

Excellent pre-cruise Quikky tour in Venice. Great guide who had so much intimate knowledge of Venice. Besides being very handsome he is a local resident for more than 2 decades with so much intimate knowledge that you can't get from a guidebook. This is my second time using Quikky for tours and transfers; they're my first choice in Italy!read more

Venice LGBT Tour

Venice does not need any presentation, as being the undisputed capital for romantic trips.

Not just for straight couples,….nay, there is an interesting gay story behind Venetian palaces.

Have you ever heard about the first gay community in Europe? Well, it was in Venice!

Itinerary

Day 1 Venice LGBT Tour

Have you ever heard about the first gay community in Europe? Well, it was in Venice!
This unique city in the world, has always welcomed the “others”. It was founded by refugees in the fifth century A.C., and, after then, Jews, heretics, exiled people found their new homes there. Until the nineteenth century, when a real gay community set in.
Lord Byron was one of the mentors of the European high society arriving in Venice in 1816. Palazzo Mocenigo, where Lord Byron lived, wrote and loved is a sixteenth century building. It has been converted into a Seventeenth and Eighteenth Fashion Museum, which is the place where our city tour starts.
By visiting the Rialto Bridge, a must in Venice, our trail unveils both historic places of gay meetings and courtyards (‘Campi’, ‘Campielli’) where prostitution was fostered and well-accepted, in order to prevent homosexuality. The double urban soul was an undeniable aspect of the Venetian courtesan life
The Gay Tour of Venice ends with a story you can’t miss: the Adventures of Casanova. We move to St. Marco Square to visit his places: the Palazzo Ducale, where he was kept in prison, and the Tavern, where he used to flirt with his uncountable lovers.

Day 2Venice traditions by Boat

Nothing better than a view of the city from a boat to understand what Venice means!
In order to discover the Venetian genius, we take you to the Murano Island:
This is the place where the glass industry originated. Here, artisans work the glass as their ancestors, with their mouth.
Glass-blowing is an ancient art, that was handed down from generation to generation. It is still possible to see the craftsmanship in Murano factories. Later, a half day tour to see another side of the romantic Venice: the suburbs of the working people, who lived and worked hard mainly for the nobles’ feasts and parties.

Il programma potrebbe subire variazioni per motivi tecnici e/o operativi.
