I'm scared of heights but this was fun! This lift felt a lot safer and more secure than it looked. The kids and I loved riding it. The views and the basilica at the top were very much worth seeing. Read more about our time in Umbria on our blog, World Travel Family.

Like a basket attached to a cable, these people carriers ascend to a terrific viewing point over Gubbio. Great fun for a few euro. Travel as a single or a duo, all good fun as one leaps on and off the non stop ride. Enjoy coffee on the terrace at the top and have fun watching people leap on and... More

We stumbled on these little cable cars whilst walking through Gubbio. It looked a bit dodgy but fun so we gave it a go! You have to jump in quick with help from the man operating it and then hold only to each other as you are carried up the hill in a small circular cage! On reaching the top... More

It took our fourth time in Gubbio to finally take this wonderful ride up the mountain. We should have done it sooner, it is much easier than it looks. Getting on and off is the easy. Even those challenged by heights will survive to see the breathtaking views.

You must ride the Funivia to experience the ride in itself plus the sensational views. You need to be able to step up quickly into the cage as it doesn't stop - but the staff assist you both on & off so it isn't a problem - you can go by yourself or two can travel together - but once... More

I thought 7 Euros a person was a little expensive for this but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the scenery as you went up (and down) the mountain in the somewhat rickety basket.

So it looks a little dodgy- but it's fantastic. You won't forget riding up the beautiful hillside in a little cage built for 2 and the wonderful views of Gubbio. It's cheap and great fun!

An amusement ride above a gorgeous medieval town -- well worth the 4 euro to ride up to the top in a little cage. So cool, especially in good weather!

Great way to meet Gubbio and sourrondings. These small open cages allows you to have a complete view of the entire city and reach the Basilica of St. Ubaldo where the urn of the patron saint of the city stands in just six minutes. The cost is 5 euros. If you visit the Umbria area you can´t miss this experience.

Our family loved it. Some had initial trepidation but it was beautiful day and the views were terrific. Like nothing else we had experienced, jumping quickly into a moving cage, heading up to the top and jumping quickly out again. Good value. It was great fun and recommended unless you have a fear of heights or mobility issues.
