Catalin Varela

My name is Catalin Varela (or “The Celiac in Italy” on Instagram) and I’m the English-speaking point of contact for all things gluten free Italy. I offer custom travel consultations for others with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and wheat allergies planning trips to Italy, I have pre-curated GF travel guides for cities around Italy, I lead 100% GF culinary experience around Florence, and I work closely with the Italian Celiac Association. I also work with Equal Eats allergy translation cards (registered as an exhibitor- stand K31) as their social media manager.
