I had an amazing trip to Italy in October 2009. My mom and I spent 10 busy days in Rome, Florence, and Venice. Although I loved Rome the best, Venice is one of those magical places that you just have to see for yourself. The canals, the gondolas, the dead-end alleyways. There is just something so mysterious about Venice. Although I ate very well in Rome and Florence, I couldn’t find as many gluten-free options in Venice. I was only there for about 2 days, so I didn’t go hungry and I brought treats with me from the other cities.
Just last week, a very interesting email came to me from a woman named Veronica in Italy. She has a 13-year-old daughter with Celiac Disease so Veronica understands the sometimes daunting task of traveling while maintaining a gluten-free diet. Veronica is the caretaker of an apartment with a gluten-free, non-contaminated kitchen in Lido, a short vaparetto ride away from Venice. The apartment is available for short-term rental and would be the perfect base for your Venetian vacation.
Here’s some additional information about the apartment in Lido from Veronica:
This apartment is furnished with elegance, praticality and taste. In all its details, note the constant attention of the owner had to create a welcoming and equipped with all amenities to make guests feel at home.
The apartment is on first floor of a typical 1900 villa.

This apartment is ideal for a family who want to spend a vacation in Venice or a group of friends who want to spend a weekend of fun at the beach.

This apartment is located in the heart of Lido, 100 meters by foot from the vaporetto that take you to Venice and to the beautiful Piazza San Marco.
In Venice, there is one one restaurant especially gluten-free. Then you can eat at Hard Rock cafe and in any places you can have salad, meat, fish. On the Lido which is an isle in front of Venice, there is a fish restaurant where if you advise inn time they can make you pasta, risotto and also pizza.
The rates are all inclusive from 120 to 200 euro per day per apartment.
Now, since I have not been to this apartment I cannot vouch for it myself but I thought this would be an interesting option to explore when traveling to Italy. If you end up inquiring and traveling to this apartment in Lido , I would love your feedback!
