7 Instagram Accounts You Should Follow If You Love Calabria

Do you love Instagram as much as I do? I’ve always had a passion for photography even though I’ve never owned a fancy camera or taken any classes. But, I do love capturing moments and with Instagram I can share them with the world. I also find a lot of inspiration from Instagram. I’ve discovered new places and seen old places from a different perspective.

So, if you love Instagram and Calabria, then this is the post for you. I’m sharing 7 Instagram accounts that you should follow if you love Calabria.

    Hello Lulu! I just started on Instagram a couple of months ago (as I got my first smartphone that I could take photos with), so I consider myself a newbie. Thanks for the recommendations. I’ll check your list out. I’m just karen.haid and I’ve been posting photos of Calabria, of course, and also Basilicata and a little Sicily.
