Thrill rides at Disney have nothing on the Funivia in Gubbio, Italy. You ride up in a hanging metal basket, standing ,getting the panoramic views of the countryside and the mountainside as the cable pulls you upwards to the Church of Saint Ubaldo. The ride is less than three minutes with no stops...you hop on at the bottom from standing... More

I've never seen a cable car like it. You literally stand in a little cage that rattles up and down the mountain. Mine didn't do much swaying, but I don't know what it's like when it's windy. I had one to myself, but you can share one, although it might be a bit of a squeeze. They don't stop at... More

How often do you get to travel up the side of a mountain in a basket? The funivia was so fun and such a great experience! Once you finish the ten minute ride to the top (I didn't time it, that's just a guess) you can enjoy the panoramic views, have a snack, and visit the Basilica of St. Ubaldo.... More

Take a trip up the local mini mountain in stand-up chairlifts for 2! This is a delightful way to get up to the cathedral and enjoy the view. Not for those who dislike heights - but great fun for everyone else. They will slow down or stop the lifts to help people get on and off with children or baggage.

I watched the "cages" go by a few times before we bought our tickets. The darned things don't slow down a bit. We're both quite fit, but it was unnerving to jump on to a moving basket and have my husband almost immediately jump in behind me. But, we did just fine. After having a visit in the Cathedral, we...

This was a fun ride that offers beautiful views. The "cars" hold 2 people and are much like a ski lift. The cars keep moving, you jump on, enjoy the scenery, and then quickly get off, with assistance, at the bottom of the mountain. Definitely do if you're in Gubbio.

As we drove up and saw the 2 - person open air baskets gliding up the mountain, I wasn't so sure about this. Once we got on the ride and started ascending the mountain, it was wonderful. The valley unfolds before your eyes. I must have snapped 50 pictures during the short ride. I highly recommend this attraction and it... More

This was a unique and fun little adventure in Gubbio that I highly recommend. The funivia is a variation on a ski lift where a series of waist-high metal baskets pulled by an overhead cable circulate between the town and the top of the hill where the Basilica of St. Ubaldo is located. The cars can fit one or two... More

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.
