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 are some of my favorite finds.


Via Doge Michiel 2/C 


Located out on Lido, Bio Sound System is a vegetarian restaurant with daily changing veggie and vegan menu with tofu and seitan dishes, plus vegan cakes!
