This past weekend a small group of us, friends who have become  like family, spent three days discovering a few towns in the provinces of Umbria and Marche.

This town was one of the most beautiful towns I have ever seen. A sight to behold and a must see, Gubbio.

Gubbio is a medieval town and also the oldest one in the Umbria region.

We walked through the old part of Gubbio and  we saw churches, the Abbey, the palace and a lot of  craft shops selling typical products of the region, such as leather, pottery and embroidery.

I could probably spend the rest of my life just discovering all these breathtaking, small towns in Italy. Maybe one day I will start doing just that. But for now I will continue to share my Italian recipes instead with all of you.
