Italy Gay Summer Pride – The full program

I know you are curious… What  is going to happen? Italy Gay Summer Pride 2017 will kick off officially on Thursday, September 21. We have prepared for you a long weekend packed with beach, fun and sun!

Day 1. Thursday, September 21.

You arrive independently to Gallipoli from either Bari or Brindisi airport (we can also arrange transfers for you, just send me an email for all the details). Where to stay? It is totally up to you. You can stay with me at the Bellavista Club, the tallest hotel in  the bay of Gallipoli; you can also decide to stay in any of our other partner hotels (soon to be disclosed); or book any other accommodation independently.

If you choose accommodation independently, you can simply purchase the Italy Gay Event Pass, which will give you access to all the events we have organised for you. Early Bird Price: only €149 if you buy the pass before May, 31.

Once checked into the hotel, meet me and  your new gay friends from all over the world at the Welcome Aperitif over the bay of Gallipoli, right in the old town. 1 Free Drink and Canapes will be included. Afterwards, you can join us for an optional dinner in the Old Town, exploring the city, having a few drinks… the night is young!

Day 2. Friday, September 22.

Is it your first time in Puglia? Then you’ll probably want to explore and discover the beautiful surroundings of the area, there are plenty of options! Rent a bike or a car and choose what to do on your own. You can also join one of the few optional day tours we have prepared for you: explore Lecce, Santa Maria di Leuca, Otranto and many other beautiful places!

If you are not in the mood for moving about you can lay down by the pool: access to the swimming pools of Bellavista Club, Joli Park Hotel and Ecoresort Le Sirene’ is free for Italy Gay Summer Pride participants. Another option is to head down to the beach: a VIP exclusive area at the Samsara Beach Club will be available to all our guests. Whatever you choose to do, make sure to join the infamous Sunset Beach Party: every afternoon the best beats at Samsara will make you shake your booty till the sun goes down.
