Hit the vegan hotspots from Venice to Rome on this unique Italian vegan food adventure
It’s remarkable that Italy, where tradition runs so strong and deep, is where some of the world’s most progressive, innovative and exquisite vegan food experiences can be had. Join Intrepid’s very first vegan-themed trip in Europe, from Venice to Rome, and discover why Italy positively excels at vegan food. It’s more than just the olive oil and bread, more than just the funghi and pappardelle and espresso and gelato – it’s the dedicated producers at all levels of hospitality that have taken up the movement with gusto and zero compromise, from the backstreets of Venice to the rolling hills of Tuscany. Come and see how Italians do it better, especially when they are bucking the trends and rewriting the rules.
Kick things off in style with a welcome dinner in Venice’s first vegan restaurant, La Tecia Vegana. This tucked-away gem combines old-school, white-tablecloth Italian dining with a superbly innovative vegan menu
Get hands-on in the famous foodie town of Bologna. Partake in a vegan cooking class with an experienced local cook, hitting the local market beforehand to source fresh local ingredients
Discover UNESCO World Heritage-listed San Gimignano, a gorgeous town in the hills of Tuscany. This ‘medieval Manhattan’ is a pretty good backdrop for a wine museum tour and a sample of the world’s best gelato
Two nights in a unique all-vegan villa in the hills of Tuscany is a getaway to remember. Think solid oak furniture made locally by hand; exquisitely crafted interiors of chalk, clay, hemp and linen; panoramic views of the rolling countryside and an organic farm-to-table vegan feast
Rome is the perfect place to finish – it’s a big town, but a veritable smorgasbord of vegan delights if you know where to find them (and we do). After a farewell dinner in a beloved local restaurant with 30 years under its belt, this legendary city is yours to explore
Veganism is about more than just food, of course. It’s an entire movement, a shift away from animal products generally. Being the sustainable-minded bunch we are, we’d love to offer trips that visit vegan hotels and use only vegan alternatives to products such as leather, but the logistics of doing so make it impossible at this stage. Perhaps we can offer this one day! But for now, the focus of our vegan trips is of the epicurean kind – quality, local, authentic vegan cuisine done by those who do it best, in some of the most incredible places around the world.
We’ve put a lot of research into putting this new trip together. However, that doesn’t mean it will run perfectly. In fact, because it’s a new itinerary we expect a few bumps along the way. In our experience, a little detour here and there can make things more interesting if you approach the adventure with flexibility and an open mind.
Anyone who has an interest in local vegan cuisine is welcome on our Vegan Food Adventures.
