Italy’s Quiiky Tours Offers “House of Gucci” Excursion

Quiiky Tours, the Italian-based LGBTQ+ tour specialist, is offering a full-day “House of Gucci” guided tour. Guests can visit many of the movie’s filming locations that feature its leading stars, Lady Gaga and Adam Driver.

“The great buzz surrounding the ‘House of Gucci’ biopic inspired us to create this unique tour,” said Alessio Virgili, co-founder and CEO of Sonders & Beach, Quiiky Tour’s parent company. Beyond the tours, the company offers its clients a comprehensive network of gay-friendly vendors, hotels and community organizations in Italy that allow them to enjoy a supportive and inclusive environment throughout their visit, he added.

Quiiky’s “House of Gucci” tour begins with visits to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping center, Scala Square and the Fashion District, all of which are featured in the movie. Guests then continue to Milan’s Central Station and Via Vittor Pisani, a street that doubled for some of the New York City scenes.

The tour moves to Villa Necchi Campiglio, which served as Rodolfo Gucci’s (Jeremy Irons’) studio in the movie. Located on Via Mozart, the house was built in 1935 by the Necchi-Campiglio family, which once presided over a sewing machine dynasty. Surrounded by a private garden, swimming pool and tennis court, it has been converted into a museum. It retains all the original furnishings and interior designs, besides its art collection, which includes masterpieces by De’Micheli, Gian Ferrari and Guido Forni. Guests will also visit the restaurant Il Salumaio in the courtyard of Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi, where Gaga and Driver shared a meal.

Guests will also visit the Church of San Sepolcro, the church where the real-life Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiani married in 1972. The building’s history dates to its construction in 1030 on the site of the ancient Roman forum. Also part of the itinerary is a visit to Via Palestro 20, where the actual headquarters of the Gucci fashion house was located and Maurizio was shot dead in 1995.

The tour concludes with a visit to Villa Balbiano on the shores of Lake Como. Villa Balbiano was built in the 16th century by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio. This is where Maurizio’s uncle Aldo, played by Al Pacino, celebrated Maurizio’s birthday. Among the highlights are its art collections, furnishing and lake views.

Tour prices include an English-speaking guide, entrance fees and transportation to and from Lake Como, the fictional location of the Gucci family villa. Guests can also choose private transportation and a stay at Villa Balbiano in Como for an additional fee. Good to know: Quiiky pays 15 percent travel advisor commission on all bookings.
