Queer Tuscany Tours is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Click-in-Tuscany, a gay-friendly tour operator from Pisa that has been on the market since 1992 and is always on the cutting edge! In this new experience designed for the LGBTQ+ tourist market, we have decided to offer you a new, exciting photographic tour that will take you to discover our cities… with just one click!
In Florence, we will start from the iconic Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, where the powerful bankers and lords of Florence held refined symposiums with the greatest gay philosophers of the Renaissance. We will then cross the narrow streets of Dante’s medieval quarter, where you can admire the House of Dante, who was the father of the Italian language and author of the Divine Comedy, but also the first ally of the queer community! Our next stop will be the Palazzo del Bargello, the headquarters of the Magistracy of the Night, the only one in Italy that did not punish homosexuality and lesbianism with capital punishment. We will continue towards Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and end in the majestic Piazza Pitti, the mansion of the last grand dukes of Tuscany and a place of great libations and real orgies – according to tradition – where Gian Gastone de’ Medici would show off his passions as Queen of Drag (even before RuPaul!)!
In Pisa, we will show you the places of “Pisa 79”, the first gay demonstration officially authorized by the Italian government in 1979! From the splendid Piazza dei Miracoli – the most representative place in the city and home to the emblematic Leaning Tower – we will cross the streets of the city, discovering the most important places for the queer history of Pisa, such as Piazza dei Cavalieri, where the scientists of the Accademia del Cimento gathered to make bizarre experiments and court Grand Duke Ferdinando II de’ Medici. We will take you to the historic headquarters of the Collettivo Orfeo, the first openly homosexual cultural association in Italy and, across the Arno, we will arrive at Palazzo Blu and end up in front of the beautiful and moving mural by Keith Haring (his only public work in central Italy) .
Our experience will make you the absolute protagonists of your trip and even real supermodels for a day! In the company of Roberta, our extraordinary professional photographer, and an LGBTQ+ tour leader, you will discover the main monuments and squares of Pisa and Florence, taking spectacular photos that you can collect in a unique souvenir of your Tuscan stay! In this way, you will not be passive observers, but will lead the visit in first person, active protagonists of a unique LGBTQ+ experience, which mixes art, culture and… PRIDE!
Also, why not blow some soap bubbles or wear a funny hat while making a toast with a nice glass of Prosecco in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa or on the Ponte Vecchio footbridge in Florence? Or maybe you could enjoy a tasty gelato on a romantic sunset walk along the Arno river! With our LGBTQ+ photo tour you can do it in a judgment-free and perfectly inclusive atmosphere!
