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... More

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

This wee hillside ride is fantastic and great value 6 euros return for one of the best views ever .... Cafe and restaurant at the top but we wished we had taken a picnic as this would have been ideal . One of the highlights of my trip travelling Le Marche Umbria and Tuscany ....

This is something that you've just got to do. Pay your 6 euros (5 if you've got a tourist card), take a quick run and leap into a moving bucket that will take you up the Rocca to the Basilica of Saint Ubaldo. A stunning ride of about 15 minutes as you glide above the trees with a fantastic view... More

This is a really fun way to get some astonishing views of the city of Gubbio and the whole surrounding region. And at the top is the very interesting and informative Basilica of Saint Ubaldo, who is said to have talked Frederick Barbarossa out of sacking Gubbio in 1155 (when he did sack the nearby Spoleto). For those concerned about... More

What an amazing way to see the surrounding countryside. A 10 min ride in a metal basket which fits 2 people for 4 euros one way or 6 euros return each. It looks a little scary but it's safe and a lot of fun and the views from the top are stunning. Don't miss the basilica of Saint Ubaldo which... More

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.
