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.

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
