What is Italy Gay Travels?

Italy Gay Travels is a gay-owned and run Boutique Tour Operator. We organise Escorted All-gay Small Group Vacations and Events for International travellers in friendly destinations in Italy (and beyond). We take pride in serving the LGBTQ+ international community: our mission is to bring like-minded people together to make long-lasting friendships and incredible lifetime memories.
We are also happy to organize private small group vacations (from as little as 2 people) and individual tours. Feel free to send us an email with your requirements.

I am a solo traveller. Can I join Italy Gay Travels Vacations?

Absolutely! All our Small Group Vacations are open to solo travellers: about half our fellow guests are traveling solo! We will create the group and make sure to create an unforgettable experience with new friends from all over the world.

Do I need to pay a single supplement?

Paying a single supplement is not required for most of our trips. If you are traveling solo and prefer to share a room, we will try to match you with a fellow traveler. If you prefer some more privacy, you can choose to pay a small single supplement, available on any departure.

How many people are on your vacations?

We organise small group vacations: you can expect anywhere between 2 and 10 guests on a group vacation with us. Plus your host of course!

The only exception to this rule is the Summer Party Weekend: you will be joined by up to 60 like-minded friends from all over the world.

Are all of your vacations Guaranteed Departures?

Yes! We guarantee most of our tours at only 2 guests so you can start plan (and book your airfares) in advance. In the unlikely event the tour cannot run, no later than 90 days prior to departure we will contact you to give you options either to transfer your deposit to another departure or trip or we will refund your deposit in full.

In what language are your vacations run?

All our tours are run in English.

We cater to the international LGBT+ Community.

Who are your tour leaders?

All our tours are run by Sergio and/or Kendall, the two founders of the company. They both live in Italy so they will make sure you experience Italy like a true local. We also have Italian professionals to help us during the tours, with excellent levels of English.

Where are your guests coming from?

Our guests come literally from all over the world! You can depart from anywhere in the world as long as you make it to our starting city.

How do I book your vacations?

Booking our vacations is very easy. Just complete the booking form with all the required information. We will come back to you with the next steps required.

How much Deposit do I have to pay?

We require a minimum of €500 deposit on all of our trips. If you need to cancel anytime prior to 90 days to departure, worries not: just let us know and we will happily transfer your payments towards another trip or departure or reimburse you the deposit, for a very small fee.

I'd love to join one of your trips. But the dates don't work quite well. What can I do?

Just send us an email, specifying the tour you would like to join and the dates that could work for you. We will make our best to create a new departure date and market it accordingly.

Are lesbians and straight people allowed to join your trips?

Absolutely yes! Although most of our guests are gay men, we are open to include women, LGBT+ individuals and their straight friends and family.

When does the vacation start and end?

Our vacations start in the evening of Day 1 in the lobby of the hotel and finish after breakfast on the final day of the tour.

What about airport transfers?

Yes, we can arrange airport transfers for you! You will find all the details in the email you will receive at the moment of your registration. Also, 10 days before the start of your vacation,  you will receive an email from your tour leader with all the instruction about the tour specifics, the itinerary and so on.
