There are two ways to get to the basilica located on Colle Eletto, walking along the long path of approximately 1 hour uphill, or easily going up by using the cable car that takes tourists on top in a few minutes. Perhaps the best choice is to take a cable car and walk down into the village. I did the... More

A great activity to do with kids who have had their fill of churches and museums. 6euro return for adults and 5euro return for children. There is a pleasant bar just past the basilica.

I'd seen this reviewed on Tripadvisor when we were planning our holiday and was curious so Gubbio went on the itinarary - so glad we saw it and came, it's fantastic. The base station is at the edge town and a short walk away from the main sites. A line of iron birdcages travels by wire to the top of... More

I am not exactly fond of heights and the sight of green birdcages going up Saint Igino's mount did not exactly fill me with confidence. However, it really was worth it. The views were spectacular and there is a nice bar at the top if you need fortifying before braving the journey back down.

Literally, in a bird cage overlooking Gubbio. Ask how to get to this unique ride up the mountain to the church of St. Ubaldo. It's not as scary as it looks; it is a lot of fun. No wait time the day we went, perhaps due to the wind at the top. The church is a real gem-- lovely stain... More

At first glance, you might say, "really, do I need to do this?" But the open cages for two are easy to get in and, with the assistance of the handlers, to get out. The trick is to "hit the ground running." And I am no kid. It is a nice ride up the mountain and the views over Gubbio... More

You can get to the top of the hill without taking this, but why? It is a little hard to find, but completely worth it. Take some time to relax, because there are plenty of picnic tables and benches with stunning views of the valley and city below. I recommend you do this early in your time in Gubbio, because...

The Funivia is really a cage for two people lifting you up to Mount Ingino. The attendants are very helpful getting you in and out.:-)

We took the funivia up the hillside behind Gubbio. Up to 2 people can jump into a metal basket, which swings a bit, but well worth it for the fantastic views that you get. It only costs 4 euros single or 6 euros return. We took a single and walked the short distance to the basilica of St Ubaldo, then... More
