Italy LGBTQ Flag
Italians by nature are well known for their open-mindedness and welcoming, friendly nature and LGBTQ travellers will find Italy is largely accepting. Same-sex relations have been legal since 1890, however it is in the past two decades that LGBTQ rights have significantly advanced with civil unions legally recognised in 2016. Same-sex marriage along with other LGBTQ rights remains today a contentious political issue.

Travellers visiting high-tourist areas such as Milan, Venice, Florence and Rome should have no problem expressing themselves and enjoying a hassle-free holiday. It would be recommended to practice caution with regards to public displays of affection when visiting smaller towns or rural areas though, in line with an overall more traditional or conservative approach.
