When in Rome…

Is it true? Does Rome really have a gay district? Well, that’s what we hear. Just minutes from the Coliseum in the Celio district, the Viale San Giovanni in Laterano has become the meeting point of the Roman gay community and international gay and lesbian travelers.

In the last 18 months, new restaurants and bars have transformed the area that should shortly become a completely pedestrian zone. The newly opened Bar Eleven brings a touch of London’s Soho to the heart of Rome and the newly renovated and renowned club Coming Out continues to attract the gay scene.

The elegant and contemporary Hotel Capo d’Africa is close by and offers pampered luxury for the discerning gay and lesbian traveler. The hotel has long been a magnet for writers and musicians and houses an exceptional collection of contemporary art. The roof terrace is a perfect place to enjoy an evening cocktail whilst overlooking the historic sights of Rome. The Hotel Capo d’Africa is also linked to cultural events in the city, such as the Massenzio Literature  Festival and the Villa Celimontana Jazz Festival.
