My girlfriend and I are heading to Italy (first time) between July 22nd - August 26th. We have some time booked in in Venice firstly for 3 days then plan on travelling to Rome and just getting completely lost in Rome until the 5th of August, we then start a 12 day tour that takes us around spots like Florence, Amalfi etc.
I've seen online that there is an event called gay village happening during the time we are there.. unfortunaltey I cannot read Italian so I'm finding it difficult to understand what it is exactly, and if it is worth trying to locate ourselves nearby. Is there anyone with more information? Or helpful hints on nearby accomodation so that we can be a part of gay village? Also, is this event just gay or lesbian orientated too..
From the online research I've done, it appears maybe the Parco del Ninfeo area?
Given that most of our time is in Rome, are there any hidden gems worth knowing about?
Thank you in advance!
