Reclaim the hidden LGBTQ history of Italy with the highly entertaining Professor Andrew Lear from and Oscar Wilde Tours.

Italy is one of the world’s travel hotspots, with amazing art, history, natural beauty–and of course its fabulous cuisine. But did you know it also has a deep and rich LGBTQ+ history?

From Julius Caesar to Michelangelo to “Call Me By Your Name” and “The White Lotus,” there is LGBTQ+ history all around you in Italy, from famous artworks like Michelangelo’s David to lesser-known but amazing sights, like Emperor Hadrian’s villa in Tivoli and the Belle Epoque villas of Capri.

Let Professor Andrew Lear of Oscar Wilde Tours fill you in on the LGBTQ+ sights and history of Italy.
