The Web page on gay-friendly tourist destinations in Sicily by MYplaceinSICILY
Sicilians are open minded people
welcoming whoever comes in peace. Gay people find gay-run bars, saunas, beaches and many other "friendly" mixed crowd places. That may be the reason why the east coast of Sicily has always been one of the leading gay
tourism destinations in Italy!
Romantic Taormina Swinging Catania
The "gay capital" of Sicily ranks
within top ten gayfriendly cities in Italy and is one of the most tolerant places in the south. Catania is a city of 700 hundred thousand and a university town with a vibrant and varied nightlife. It started as a gay holiday destination a couple of years ago: gay life goes all night long all year round and is much noisier than in Taormina! 
One of the leading gay resort
in the Mediterranean since the 60s, Taormina is relaxed but glamorous. After spending the whole day at the beach, you can take a stroll, do some shopping and reach the town park to see the sun set behind Mount Etna. After dinner, you can have a drink in one of the gay bars. Ideal for couples; unsuitable for disco bunnies!
Siracusa: the next one?
Siracusa has not a gay life out of the closet, but the extremely charming and recently reborn central district of Ortigia attracts a growing number of gay travellers, also due to a number of new quality hotel structures. If you are planning a journey to Sicily, you should definitely keep an eye on this town!
