Italian-based Quiiky Tours, which focuses on LGBTQ travel, launched its 2022 season with a wide range of guided tours that highlight the legacy of Italy's gay art, history and culture. They include "Untold History" tours that include "Rome -- Vatican Museums in a Gay Light" and "Florence: Renaissance Under a Gay Light."
Offerings include two- and three-hour tours, such as "Homosexuality in Ancient Rome," and comprehensive full-day tours, such as "Leonardo da Vinci's Genius Under a Gay Light."
"LGBTQ tourism is one of the fastest growing segments of the travel industry," said Alessio Virgili, co-founder and CEO of Quiiky Tours. "For travel advisors, LGBTQ customers are among the most loyal. They were among the first to start traveling again following the government lockdowns and are leading the way in the recovery of the industry. Statistics also show that LGBTQ travelers are more affluent than their straight counterparts, and they spend more when they travel."
Quiiky pays advisors 15 percent commission on all bookings.
