Vegan Food Guide to Venice

Vegan Food Guide to Venice

Eating vegan is easy in Venice! Sure you can find cheeseless pizza or vegan gelato anywhere … but you can also find all the delectable Italian classics, and more, all easily veganized.

 

Most spots are easy to get to just by walking around or you can hop into a water taxi or on a water bus, and cruise around the many canals. There’s even a few places on the mainland that are great stops on your way into or out from the islands.

 

Here's my personal guide on the best vegan eats, and because Venice is perfect for walking, accompanied by some shots of beautiful Venice throughout the day to guide you!
