A lot of people walked out of their viewing of Call Me By Your Name with the sudden urge to eat a peach and take a trip to Italy. Well, withthat’s specifically for fans of the film, you can live out those daydreams — peach not included, as far as I know.
The eight-night tour is being offered by Quiiky Tours, a company specializing in gay and lesbian-themed trips and tourism. It includes both famous historic cities like Milan and Bergamo, but also specific locations from the film like Crema, where most of the movie was shot.
Prices start at $2,500 per person, which includes the accommodation for eight nights, tours in the specific cities, car rentals, two wine tastings, and entrance to the Cave of Catullus and the hotel spa, both of which are on Lake Garda.
Given that it’s an LGBTQ-specific tour, this seems like it would be a great way to travel, even if you’re not particularly interested in Call Me By Your Name. As LGBTQ people, we don’t often get the certainty that we can travel somewhere and feel safe – tours like this are a step in that direction. At least you know you’ll be surrounded by other gay and gay-friendly fam. (It’s worth noting you have to be 18 to join the trip – sorry, Elio!)
