Gluten Free Holiday in Pigneto distrct of Rome, suitable for lactose intolerants, vegetarians and or vegans as well.

Welcome to Pigneto, the renowned bohemien district of Rome at the gates of the historical center, full of bars and restaurants of various kinds, is one of the most famous Roman areas for good food and drink and for the presence of artists and intellectuals, perfect for your Gluten Free Holiday or Vegan, Vegetarian and / or Lactose free in Rome.

Once a poor and suffering district, “the crown of thorns that surrounds the city of God” as defined by Pierpaolo Pasolini, today sees a redevelopment thanks to its strategic position, the richness of cultural ferment, the presence of important elements of street art and a local community that sees added value in the integration between different cultures and sensibilities.

Suitable resources for people with celiac disease as well as for lactose intolerants, vegetarians or vegans are available in the area.

There’s a variety of resources that allow you to taste from classic Italian cuisine to ice cream, from baked goods to desserts without excluding reality as bistrots and wine bars.

In the pedestrian area in Via del Pigneto, for locals simply “l’isola” (the island), you will find richness of food and wine offer as well as fun and joy.
