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

We had a fantastic tour of the Vatican with Paolo from Quiiky. Paolo was knowledgeable, personable, fun and really gave us a different insight into the history of art and the gay artists that are part of the Vatican's history and more! Highly recommended!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

One of the best ways to visit an ancient city is to understand how life is nowadays and how it was long time ago…

The tour starts at the Oppian Hill, one of the famous Seven Hills of Rome. From above, you will see a beautiful view on the Colosseum. Afterwards we will visit the Colosseum and thanks to a skip-the-line ticket we will enter without being stressed by the waiting times.

Let you get stunned by the amazing structure and our guide will explain about the history of the Colosseum and their protagonists the Roman Soldiers.

According to the history it is well known that these soldiers needed to show their self-discipline not only during a battle but during their lives. In fact Augustus, considered as the first Emperor, did not allow soldiers to get married but to follow some sexual habits: having sex with prostitutes of any gender or with male slaves; war rapes and having same-sex relations.

Our guide will tell you the life inside the most famous monument in the world: from the famous fights between gladiators. Then, we will have a little break in the nearby of the Arch of Constantine, erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine’s victory over Maxentius.

From there we reach the Palatine Hill, the most famous of the seven hills of Rome and where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf. We can see the Imperial Fora and the Circus Maximus which was an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium.

Some stories about ancient homosexual personalities like some emperors happened in the past and were part of that hidden history.

Nero

Nero was the last Roman Emperor of the dynasty founded by Augustus. Some stories about his sexuality had been left by some writers like Suetonius. These stories relate (“Nero”, 28-9) how Nero used to enjoy sexual relationships with men. He married Sporus and he treated him as a wife. Nero was also related to Doryphorus, assuming the passive role with him.

 

Julius Cesar

Then we take a walk along Via Sacra, the main street of ancient Rome, where we will find the Temple of Caesar, the site where he was cremated. 

Julius Caesar was a Roman politician and military leader, he was known for having an affair with the king of Bithynia from which he was referred as the “Queen of Bithynia”. Also some tellings say that when he won the battle against the Gauls the soldiers sang “Caesar may have conquered the Gauls, but Nicomedes conquered Caesar” and he was also known as “Every woman’s man and every man’s woman”

We will also see Piazza Venezia and the Pantheon during the tour.

We suggest you to have lunch at the Coming Out, near the Colosseum, in the gay area of Rome.

Ovid (43 B.C.E.-17 C.E.) talked about “a boy or a girl” (aut puer aut … puella) or Lucretius (94-55 B.C.E.) didn’t determine: “whether boy or woman” (sive puer … seu mulier) was a love of him.

Visit the most beautiful attractions of the Eternal City and find out all the details has ever showed!
