It's not so hard to put yourself back in the 14th century when you enter. There's a big, big room, fireplaces. Imagine a long table, blazing fires, dogs running around and begging for bones. Go upstairs (and be careful, they're well-worn, a little slippery) and see marvels like the ancient Eugubine tablets, written by ancients who predated Romans. The building... More

This museum is spread over several floors of the palazzo, but can be be viewed in one or two hours. The main attractions for us were the bronze tablets inscribed in the ancient Umbrian language, but the rest of the museum is well worth seeing. Gubbio is a ceramics town, & as Australian ceramic fanatics, we were astonished to see... More

Houses some of the most important Italian literature in the country - Ecubine bronze tablets and examples of Majolica ceramics from the 16th century. An imposing structure that provides some of the most glorious views in Umbria

In the upper rooms there is a gallery of local Renaissance art, exhibitions of majolica and of the history of the foundation of modern Italy. There are... More

The city is dominated by the Palazzo dei Consoli,its square battlements and campanile declare its power- mantra. the palazzo commands attention with an open,large empty piazza with a high parapat that looks far over the mosaic of roofs to the green plains stretching beyond the town. Shelved against the slopes of Monte Igino,Gubbio looks almost precisely as it did during... More

This elegant palazzo has great views of its piazza and the valley below. It contains the wooden prisms that are used in the Corsa dei Ceri each May. This event pits three teams in a strenuous race in which these large wooden structures and statues of saints are carried uphill to the basilica of Sant'Ubaldo, who is the patron saint... More
