Vegan in Tuscany

How to survive Tuscany being vegan?

Here are some local tips to be vegan in Tuscany.

  • We love the restaurant, bar and market, La raccolta in Florence, you can enjoy home made pizza and bread.

Also good for its vegetarian and regular options.

  • Have a cooking class with slow food cooking school in Paciano or at your villa, on request they are happy to accomodate vegan options.


  • Green go is a sustainable shop in Florence, with nice vegan options, it is a restaurant, bar and shop.

  • If you are lost, regular Tuscan restaurants serves Fagioli all’uccelletto, local beans usually made vegan style or in Umbria the pizza onion and sage is a great option.
  • Also ask for Torta al testo filled with vegetables at Maria la pizza più buona che ci sia, or better Da Faliero, along lake Trasimeno.
  • In September, but also all around the year,  a must is to have Pici all’aglione (double check that pici are not done with an egg), otherwise you can ask for simple pasta all’aglione that is a spicy tomatoes sauce made with a special garlic of Val di Chiana, Tuscany and Umbria.
