My Italian life

If You Are Thirsty!!!

 

How says the owner of this beer place, ‘good places should be discovered’! And he is damn right!!! It’s the most fun and “take it easy” place to discover.

If you are a great fan of good beer then pack your stuff and go to Italy to the small town called Gubbio and find the pub Don Navarro!! In Don Navarro you can experience fantastic local, worldwide famous beers and “taste of difference” beers. It’s a small pub with a lot to offer! I enjoyed the place, talked with super friendly owner and of course the beer. If I remember right, they have more then 18 beer variations!
