It was easy to schedule our tour. Everything was explained in great detail, so there was no confusion on the day of the excursion. The vans were spotless and comfortable. Our guide for the Colosseum was exceptional in every way. He was cute, knowledgeable, witty, flexible and engaging. We met so wonderful folks and shared a wonderful lunch with the guys from our group. Could not have been happier with Quiiky.read more

What an outstanding trip put together by Eduardo! The guides we had in both Rome (Ulisse) and Naples (Andrea) were absolutely excellent - they both were extremely knowledgeable and made the experience so much fun! Our hotel accommodations were excellent choices, and conveniently located to many things we wanted to see. The entire experience was highly enjoyable and we would recommend this company without reservation to anyone (gay or straight) looking for a uniquely tailored vacation experience.read more

Thanks Claudio for a great alternative tour of the Vatican. Having visited back in 1999 I wanted something a little different to do with my husband who had never visited before. It was busy but Claudio ensured we avoided as many crowds as we could and his insights made it a light hearted and fun morning, still with all the essential details you need to appreciate the artworks. It is great to see tour Quiiky offering tours with a twist and can most definitely recommend this one for your next visit to Rome.read more

We adored our Quikky tour of the Vatican with our guide Claudio. We had been a little apprehensive about visiting the Vatican but this tour is the way to go! Claudio had an expert knowledge of the art collection and we enjoyed hearing the "other", more scandalous stories of the private lives of Michelangelo and the popes. We loved our visit to the museums, Sistine Chapel, grotto and St Peters - I recommend joining the queue and adding on the view from the dome of the basilica - well worth the stairs!read more

First had a wonderful pre-cruise Quikky tour in Venice. Our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable, and a great deal of fun. Then I went on a tour of the Vatican and our tour guide was incredible. He is an expert on the Vatican and on the pertinent gay history (which turns out to be much more than you might even think). He literally made the Vatican come alive and provided one of the more fascinating tours I have taken anywhere. And the two wonderful owners of Quiiky picked us up and took us on a vehicular tour of Rome. Others got back from Rome complaining of the crowds and the heat... we got back energized, happy, and filled with fascinating information after an afternoon filled with fun and personalized care. Don't make the mistake thinking you will get an equivalent tour from a straight guide/company -- if you are gay, Quiiky is the way to go.read more

Excellent pre-cruise Quikky tour in Venice. Great guide who had so much intimate knowledge of Venice. Besides being very handsome he is a local resident for more than 2 decades with so much intimate knowledge that you can't get from a guidebook. This is my second time using Quikky for tours and transfers; they're my first choice in Italy!read more

Tour Details

Hendrik Christian Andersen Museum

Our Untold History Tour at the Museum of Hendrik Christian Andersen will show you one of the greatest collections in homosexual history in Rome.

Hendrik Christian Andersen

Hendrik Christian Andersen (April 17, 1872 – December 19, 1940) was an American sculptor, painter and urban designer from Norway.

Andersen was born in Bergen, Norway, in 1872. As a child, he emigrated with his family in Newport, Rhode Island, the following year. In 1893, Andersen traveled to Europe to study art and ended up  in Rome, settling for the rest of his life.

In Rome, he had a lot of friends including painters and writers. He developed a passion for art and much of his work was made for the project of a Perfect World City, the “City-World”, full of art, and that would motivate humanity to pursue a utopy.

In 1899, Andersen met Henry James, the American writer and patriot. Although James was about 30 years older, the two developed an intense relationship that lasted until the death of James in 1915. Although the precise nature of this relationship is still subject to dispute, the two exchanged numerous letters that show a very tight  homoerotic love, perhaps best illustrated by a letter to James Andersen, following the death of the brother of the latter 9 February 1902, in which James wrote:

“The fact that I can not help you, see you, talk to you, touch you, hold you tight for a long time or do anything to reassure you and make you feel my deep participation – this torments me, dear boy, it makes me ache for you and for myself; I’m screeching teeth and groaning against the bitterness of these things […]”

Andersen died in Rome in 1940, donating his house ( “Villa Helene”), the study, documents and more than 400 works to the Italian Government.

His house has been restored and converted into a museum and contains much of the work of Andersen, as well as those of other artists and contemporary photographers, his friends and acquaintances.
