Referred to as "The Eternal City", Rome is the capital of Italy and has one of the largest populations in Europe, with about 2.8 million residents based in the city. Rome houses some of the most visited tourist destinations, which is hardly surprising when the city has such a vast and rich history that spans over two and a half thousand years. There are numerous monuments and museums that give you some insight into Rome’s history and it is a fascinating cultural centre. Of course, there are plenty of nightclubs and bars, too, but since Catholicism is deeply ingrained in Roman culture, there are ambivalent attitudes towards sexuality.
Despite this, there are gay bars, saunas and bathhouses, as well as other establishments that cater for the gay community, particularly in the Viale San Giovanni area of the city. In the summer, an area of land is taken over by Gay Village so that it can be used as an outdoor entertainment complex. You can enjoy live music and film screenings, drink in one of the bars or go for a workout in the gym. Rome Pride is another opportunity for members of the LGBT to get together in order to raise awareness about issues faced by the gay community whilst also celebrating their contribution to society.
Rome is also the ideal city to be in if you’re interested in history and culture, as there are plenty of world-class museums and art galleries in the city, as well as historical artefacts. You may decide to pay a visit to the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, the Galleria d'Arte Antica, the Vatican Museum, Rome's National Museum at the Baths of Diocletian and at Palazzo Altemps, the Museo di Civilta Romana, the Museum of the Walls, and the Musical Instrument Museum. There are also lots of piazzas in the city which usually feature a church and a fountain or two in the area, with St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican proving popular and Trevi Fountain in the Modern Centre of Rome also attracting plenty of attention.
Whilst in Rome you can visit the theatre, explore the city, watch a game of football or two, experience the opera, listen to live music and simply enjoy the city’s fine history. A stay in Rome certainly won’t be boring – that’s for sure!
