When entering this Palazzo the building immediately takes you on a trip back in time. The building is well preserved and gives you a good idea of courtlife during the renaissance. A wonderful bonus is the view from the loggia on the upper level of the building. In the building there are little expositions of different quality. Very interesting though... More

Visiting Gubbio requires you to stop by this Palace. It includes several pieces of Gubbio's history, a good summary of its culture and a marvellous Loggia to see the entire city

In the beautiful city of Gubbio, one of the oldest of Umbria, you'll find this Jewell of a castle, that at first sight reminds you of the Palazzo Vecchio. The inside is a lesson in the architecture of these buildings, toilets included. The museum has wonderful pieces of ceramics, among them some by the eugubine master Giorgio Andreoli. Also it...

It's a long steep climb to the top but with lots of interesting things to see en route so you can take your time. The Iguvine tablets which are a Rosetta stone for Etruscan & Latin are there. Not very exciting in appearance but important to archaeologists. I was interested that there importance was recognised & they were valued so... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here, especially since it was a very hot day and it was sooo cool inside. Many rooms to explore and well distplayed. Well worth a visit.

This was a far more interesting museum than I had expected. We went for the Iguvine Tablets, but there was much more worth seeing--including some interesting Tibetan horns that we have not seen the likes of elsewhere. Great old Palazzo too. Good value.

The Palazzo dei Consoli is undoubtedly what makes the Piazza Grande is one of the most beautiful and characteristic of the city of Gubbio (UNESCO world heritage). This building also houses inside the museum also, obviously with a ticket fee. Personally I decided not to visit the museum, I just admire this beautiful building externally. Really very nice.

It stands on the edge of what is supposed to be the largest hanging square in the world, a feat of architectural brilliance. The views are lovely. There are some really interesting Tibetan artefacts which are unique in the world. It is also home to the IguvineTablets, some of which are written in the ancient Umbrian language and it has...

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
