Versilia a Popular Summer Destination for LGBT

A few days ago I read this article on the Italian newspaper La Repubblica about gay and lesbian tourism in Tuscany and the popularity of the area of Versilia over Greece as a destination for the LGBT community. It didn’t really surprise me since Tuscany has always been a land of freedom. Just think that the Grand Duke Leopold I was the first to decriminalize homosexuality in Italy back in 1853.

Torre del Lago in Versilia is one of the top 5 summer destinations for the LGBT community. This in large part is due to the hard work of Friendly Versilia, a local project set up in 1998 to work with local entrepreneurs and businesses to turn Torre del Lago into a gay-friendly destination.

Versilia offers everyone the chance to relax and lots of entertainment options for everyone who wants to spend their holidays under the Tuscan sun.
