Where my great-grandfather was born – Gubbio, Italy

I know the hour long bumpy bus ride is almost over when I see the ancient roman theater. We arrive in Gubbio, the small town in Umbria where my family is from.

At the Top of Mt. Ingino we stopped at the cafe, unfortunately it was closed but we still could enjoy the view! We also stopped in the Basilica of Sant'Ubaldo (the town's patron Saint)

On the way down the mountain we took the funavia (a small chairlift).
