Quiiky Tours Launches 2022 Season

Quiiky Tours, which touts itself as the first LGBTQ tour operator in Italy, has launched its 2022 season with guided tours of popular cities that reveal the legacy of Italy’s gay art, history and culture. Among these are the company’s “Untold History” tours that include “Rome—Vatican Museums in a Gay Light,” and “Florence: Renaissance Under a Gay Light.” These include numerous tours spanning two and three hours, such as “Homosexuality in Ancient Rome,” besides full-day tours such as “Leonardo da Vinci’s Genius Under a Gay Light”.

Quiiky is also accepting bookings for its nine-day “Call Me by Your Name” tour, which starts in Milan and visits some of the locations featured in the film, such as Bergamo, Crema, Lake Garda and Venice. It is available June 10, 2022. Other tours include the 10-day “Marvelous Three of Northern Italy – Milan, Venice and Florence,” available August 4-13, 2022; and the 10-day guided tour of Rome, Naples, Pompeii and Amalfi Coast, available September 8-17, 2022. Meanwhile, the company’s Atlantis Cruise is set to sail the Mediterranean, August 21-30, 2022. It will visit Rome, Pompeii, Naples, Amalfi, Messina and Taormina, where guests will be treated to local guided tours.

“LGBTQ tourism is one of the fastest growing segments of the travel industry,” noted Alessio Virgili, co-founder and CEO of Quiiky Tours, in a press note. “For travel advisors, LGBTQ customers are among the most loyal. They were among the first to start traveling again, following the government lockdowns, and are leading the way in the recovery of the industry. Statistics also show that LGBTQ travelers are more affluent than their straight counterparts, and they spend more when they travel.”

Quiiky Tours explore the often-hidden history of famous homosexuals, many of whom have had a significant impact on world affairs, its art and diverse culture. The company has established a comprehensive network of gay-friendly vendors, hotels and community organizations in Italy that allow travelers to enjoy a fully supportive and inclusive environment throughout their visit, with a guarantee of accommodations in hotels that are fully respectful of their rights.
