Gay Owned: Gay Wedding Honeymoon Travel in Torino, Italy
Even if Italy isn't the most tolerant country for gay couples, it has become more and more accepting in recent years. Homosexuality has been legal here since 1889, and the age of consent is 16. It's illegal to have sex in public (for gays and straights), and even open displays of affection by same sex couples can be an issue with some officials.
We don't have mariage equality or civil unions yet, but in some towns there are registered civil partnerships that give recognition to gay couples. And yet, Italy remains a favorite romantic destination for gay men and lesbians.
Rome, Florence, and Venice are wonderful places to see at least once. But over the years, the growing number of visitors from all over the world has made them extremely tourist-oriented and commercial. They have lost the "true Italian" authenticity and experience that many visitors crave.
Italy, a country with more than 3,000 years of recorded history, has so much more to offer. There are many places not yet overrun by tourists, where you can experience the towns, food, people and customs which are truly Italian. Landscapes that rival (and maybe even surpass) Tuscany await your discovery along Italy's back roads.
If you are gay and are planning a trip to Italy, how can you find the best places, enjoy an Italian adventure, and still be safe? This is why I started my company, "My Hidden Italy", back in 2007.
