Celiac Friendly Accommodation In Italy

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!!

We have been thinking about going to Italy in the next few years but as we have a 10 year old daughter who is a celiac we have been concern about eating options in the land of gluten.

I discovered this site which manages accommodation throughout Italy that is celiac friendly. Many of the places serve gluten free meals and are very knowledgeable about gluten free food.

We haven't been there yet but thought it looked very interesting.

Make sure you tick the celiac box at the top left hand corner.

Wow! Thanks so much for posting this. I'm always a bit wary about booking places overseas (before gluten free even) so I check the reviews at www.tripadvisor.com. Most places worth staying at have been reviewed on there by actual tourists who've stayed there. In three years it has not steered me wrong yet. Good luck and have a glorious trip! Remember in the phamacias in Italy, you can order gluten free food to be picked up at a later time...either the day you order or the next day. That is possible in the larger cities anyway.


Dx'd with anemia - March 2005

Thanks Amber! I'll be going to Italy this summer and was kinda wondering how I was going to approach it.

We haven't made any firm plans as yet but are thinking about it.

I had a look at a few of the places on Trip Advisor and I am thinking twice now about those hotels as they some of them haven't got very good reviews. I always look at trip advisor also - an excellent site. Thanks for the reminder about it.
