This ride is not for people afraid of heights. It looks like a bird cage and feels a bit unsafe but the view is spectacular and takes your breath away. We went on a sunny day and I held on to my partner for dear life as I peeked and closed my eyes on and off for the ride.

This looks a little scary as you have to stand and cuddle up in a small cage, but it really isn't that bad, the views are brilliant and the church containing St.Ubaldo is well worth a visit too. If you feel like a little hike dont stop there, you can climb the pathway from the church right up to the... More

6 euros for a return ticket - fantastic value for money . Journey up and down lasts approx. 6 minutes each way , 360 degree view of the Umbrian countryside , probably the best 6 euros I've spent this year , but in true terms priceless , Very peaceful and quiet at the summit , there's even a hotel ,...

Moving up the steep mountainside in a small bird cage was a little frightening for someone afraid of heights. Once we reached the top however, the view was magnificent. It was well worth the closed eyes traversing up. The church at the top was stunning.

The funivia is not for the faint hearted as you stand in an open cage. But if you are not afraid of heights if offers spectacular views of Gubbio and the surrounding area. Pick a nice clear day without too much wind and you won't regret it.

We weren't aware of this when we got to Gubbio and were a little reticent about riding it, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our time in Umbria. The ride itself was great and even those who suffer fear of heights need not worry as it doesn't get too high off the ground. The view... More

A stand up, two person cage. One steps in then the other steps in then they shut the gate. It really is pretty easy although a bit more complicated than our chairlifts. This one give you a very good view of the Medieval town of Gubbrio and drops you near the top of the mountain at the minor Basilica of... More

As others have said, think of a regular chair lift where you sit and take away the seat and add a cage for 2. You step into the cage as it comes to you (they do slow it down for Seniors) and you stand one behind the other and are locked in. Up the hill you go with wonderful views... More

This is, in effect, a cable car where you stand up. One or two people in a cage. Not for the faint hearted. It goes up the hill to a Basilica, and you can walk down. Takes about 30-40 minutes to walk down.
