Vegan food in Italy

If you’re visiting Italy you already know that it’s the temple of the best and oldest cuisine in the world. You will find a lot of vegetarian and vegan options in almost every restaurant and the choices are various from pasta to pizza, from falafel to vegan burgers.

A lot of traditional dishes are just carbs with veggies, especially pasta and rice. Some of them are vegan or vegetarian and easily “veganizable”, but for a safe trip I will list some recommendation below.

Bear in mind that in Italian vegetarian/vegan people are about 8% of the population, but the number is more consistent in the north and that’s the reason why you may experience a some of difference in the offer of vegan food depending on the area you are exploring.

I have to say that the majority of restaurant managers are always willing to make their guests comfortable with their preferences and allergies, most dishes are cooked at the moment and customizable at your request, but always specify or show our “safe vocabulary” (you can find it at the end of the post).

Anyway, as I always prefer choosing an apartment or a hostel with a kitchen (my man likes to cook and he is better than a restaurant =)), I will soon make a list of the vegan foods you can easily find in Italian supermarkets and how to recognize them, so keep following me!

The best secluded beaches in south Crete

Whenever I go to Greece I feel thrilled, not only because I hope that I will find some vegan baklawa, but also because I’m sure that I will discover plenty of astonishing beaches.

In Crete you can be sure you can find the right beach for you: sandy or rocky, wide or narrow, textile or naturist, popular or secluded….

If you like the less crowded ones, then this is the article for you.

These are my favourite beaches in south Crete (sorry say that you will need a car to visit almost each one of them)

A glimpse of nature in Panama City

 

While visiting Panama City we got really impressed by the general lack of natural shadow in the streets. As Europeans we are used to walk along avenues surrounded by trees, parks and gardens.

In Panama, especially downtown, we noticed that the neighborhood is not actually made for walking: there are only a few pavements and they are often broken, it's a city designed more for driving than for going on foot.

The "Cinta Costera" is of course an amazing place to have a walk and admire the landscape, but it's not natural at all.

Lucky for us (and for you), if you are in Panama City  longing for a bit of nature, there's an amazing space just one km away from the central station, know as Albrock.

1) It can be less expensive than you may imagine

 

If you are planning a trip to Stockholm but you fear that it can be too expensive, do not worry! You can find so many different ways to enjoy the city without spending a cent 🙂

First of all, the city is pretty small and accessible, so you will almost never need to use a taxi or public transportation (even if the underground network is really worth a visit for its artwork).

Vegan food in Stockholm

As so many of you know, leaving for a trip (it doesn’t matter how long or short) often means packing up a lot of emergency food: we are always fearing that we will starve and that we won’t find enough vegan food to survive 🙂

This is of course an irrational feeling, maybe due to the difficulties we experienced years ago, when the offer of vegan food wasn’t so wide and people didn’t even know what “vegetarian” meant.

Lucky enough, things have changed now, and I have actually learned that you can find something great to eat in most countries…. But sometimes the problem is the price.

Before leaving for Stockholm I packed my usual selection of pasta, biscuits and gnocchi, just to be sure that I had at least the main ingredients for my dinners; I heard the Stockholm can be rather expensive, so I was prepared to eat really basic food for the whole week.

After visiting some supermarkets and some restaurants, I honestly can say that the prices are a bit higher than in other European countries, but you can still have a great food experience at reasonable prices if you just pay a bit of attention.
