The event will take place in Rome from 1st to 12 June 2011. The Hotel Capo d’Africa offers a special package for the event. Its quiet and reserved location at the centre of the city’s gay scene, its cool style, its attentive yet discreet service are the best points of this gay friendly hotel.

Rome, the Eternal City, where the echoes of ancient Rome can still be heard in the squares, under the colonnades and along the narrow streets, is hosting Europride starting June 1st, the event that is perhaps the most reminiscent of ancient pagan revels. With lightness and exuberance, music and sparkle, Rome, the city of the popes, with its churches, domes and bell towers will make way for a festive, colourful, noisy procession that will take place on June 11. An event devised, organized and shared to assert the pride of gays, lesbians, transsexuals and bisexuals who, happy to be what they are, without prejudice or fear, supported by open-minded people who know themselves, will parade through Rome.

Rome will be different for one day, and being there is bound to be a unique experience. But after the gay event and the long procession, the proud warriors will need a rest. There are many gay friendly hotels in the capital, but the Hotel Capo d’Africa offers something more which art lovers and those who love beautiful things in general cannot fail to enjoy. The hotel was built at the beginning of the 20th century and is known for its reserve and its attentively discreet service that is much appreciated by its gay clientele, who apart from liking fun and often camping it up, seek and love what is beautiful. Certainly the Hotel Capo d’Africa has an atmosphere that is both classy yet discreetly luxurious, where guests can treat themselves to an aperitif on the terrace, tone up in the gym and admire the contemporary paintings decorating the interior.

In addition, the Hotel Capo d’Africa is located in a prime area, both as regards connections and the Rome gay scene, which revolves around the parallel street Via San Giovanni in Laterano. It is also near some of the most famous sights in Rome including: the Colosseum, the basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, the church of San Clemente on three levels and the basilica of the Santi Quattro Coronati. The roof and apse of this medieval church, one of the most beautiful in Rome and in the whole of Italy, can be admired from the hotel terrace, where on one of those pleasant June evenings guests can enjoy a barbecue included in the package. This package costs 300 euros for a double room with breakfast and can only be booked through the hotel itself by contacting: Tel. +39 06 594848, Fax + 39 06 32111478, E-mail: info(at)hotelcapodafrica(dot)com.

The Hotel Capo d’Africa is far from ordinary since its idea of hospitality is to create an informal very contemporary atmosphere. African exoticism is conjured up by many details from the tall palms flanking the entrance, to the roots of tropical plants and certain rare objects included in the décor. There is a stunning installation of black rubber roses by Paolo Canevari covering the wall of the lobby opposite the entrance.
The Hotel Capo d’Africa is also linked to cultural events in the capital including the Literature Festival held at the basilica di Massenzio and the Jazz Festival in the park of the Villa Celimontana.
