Gay Cruising Rome

Rome has many parks and squares, which become popular hook up areas in the evening, post work.

Colosseo Quadrato gay cruising

The park by the Colosseo Quadrato is busy in the evening – you cant miss the building with its Rainbow Light show.

Outdoor cruising in Rome has decreased with the advent of social media and dating apps such as Scruff and Grindr. Indeed you will find many of the hottest Israeli, Brazilian and Italian escorts all using the apps. However during the Summer heat, Italians and tourists like to hook up at these popular outdoor gay cruising spots.

PIAZZALE DEL GALOPPATOIO

Located near the top of via Veneto (right near the American Embassy). Beware of Police Checks. Busy at night time with local guys of all ages. Guys will park their cars across the street while they cruise.

MONTE CAPRINO

Not the easiest place to find, Walking from Piazza Venezia past the Roman Capital Building, take your first right up the winding road overlooking the Forum. Walk for approximately 2 kilometers. We have been told that the gates close now in the evenings, however one remains open. This area gets busy late at night especially by the terraced gardens along the hill overlooking the ruins.

COLOSSEO QUADRATO

The Colosseo Quadrato, by the Metro Magliana is busy by the gardens near Bar Palombini roma, especially in the evening and it can get quite crowded.

Rome gay beaches

Rome’s gay beaches are a 30 min day trip away and have a cruisy atmosphere in the late afternoon. Follow the orange umbrellas!

Ostia Gay Beach Rome

Even if cruising is not your thing, a visit to Ostia Gay Beach in Rome should be on your agenda if you are visiting in the Summer months.

The flight from the inevitable Roman summer heat in the city beings in June and to Ostia Beach Resort. We recommend a day trip to the less well-known Spiaggia Il Buco gay beach, as its cleaner and generally nicer.

From the heart of the city it is about a one hour journey on public transit and makes a fun picnic day away from the historic ruins and a chance to catch some eye-candy as the local gays and lesbians enjoy their piece of paradise on the Tyrrhenian Sea.

There is a stretch of nude beach which is mostly populated by the gay community. And of course there are plenty of places to escape the sun and enjoy a cool beverage plus some local pasta specialties or real Italian thin crust pizza.

Getting there is slightly complicated but if you take the Metro B (blue) line train from the Termini Station to Piramide and then change to the Metro destined for Ostia and get off at Cristoforo Colombio, then take the number seven bus to Capocotta, you will easily find the beach using your gaydar—or by asking a local resident. It is well worth the journey and any Roman holiday needs some oceanside time.
