Italy Without Gelato
Vegan Trip Options Grow As More People Embrace a Plant-Based Lifestyle
Intrepid Travel has recently introduced an Italy tour that includes dinner in Venice’s first vegan restaurant and two nights in an all-vegan villa in Tuscany. Prices start at $2,610, pancetta not included. The adventure company also added vegan-focused tours to India and Thailand, where visitors can make a plant-based meal with a homestay host.
These trips are designed for a growing market: vegans, people who do not eat or use animal products, often motivated by health, global warming or animal welfare. A recent report by Global Data noted a 600 percent increase in the number of vegans in the U.S. over the past three years. A December article by Forbes was titled, “Here’s why you should turn your business vegan in 2018.”
