ROMAN HOLIDAY

THE ITALIAN CAPITAL DRAWS MILLIONS OF TOURISTS EACH YEAR, PROMISING TALES OF ANCIENT HISTORY AND ARCHITECTURAL WONDERS, AS WELL AS WORLD-CLASS GASTRONOMY AND STREET FOOD. WINQ VISITED FOR A TASTE OF THE ETERNAL CITY’S SPLENDOUR AND LEFT FULLY SATISFIED

It all starts with a taxi from the airport to the Trevi Fountain.

We - myself and the rest of the press trip group, guests of Citalia (www.citalia.com) – join in with the crowds surrounding the 18thcentury monument, backs turned to the water, to throw coins over our shoulders.

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
