Anybody who knows me understands I am of my heritage. Naturally, last 13, once I visited Todi, Gubbio, and Florence I took Instagram photographs of my trip. While Todi and Gubbio are in from the Umbria area florence is in Tuscany.
I still managed to capture Even though the October weather did not cooperate totally. When I was younger is the reason it remains among my favourite areas in the world. I’ve been back several times, but on this trip I took my wife for the very first time.
