Travel To Italy

Recommended Posts

I am leaving for Italy soon (like in 4 days) and I would like to hear from anyone who has been there.

Can you find gluten-free foods in a reg. grocerystore? How receptive are resterants to gluten-free diets?

LOL... very briefly but that video is well worth watching anyway...

Italy is probably the best place...I have been to and I travel a lot..

You can get gluten-free foods in pharmacies but last year they had adverts for a new a chain of gluten-free supermarkets ...

Diagnosis rate is 1:200 so awareness is very high... almost any resto is going to know about it.

Even little ice cream shops tend to have gluten-free cones

The Italian celiac organisation has lists of resto's in almost every major town...
