Fantastic views on the way up from the "funivia" on the old town of Gubbio. The basilica is very nice and worth spending some time visiting. Don't miss the "ceri", these three 300lbs wood structures that are taken down to the city and brought back to the mountain by teams running all the way up on the feast of St... More

The monastery itself is not particularly spectacular (after all, it is a monastery) but the views are spectacular and the museum (free entry) has some interesting artifacts and a video of the Festa Del Ceri for those of us who aren't there to see it.

If you are just on a day trip to Gubbio it is understandable that this Basilica may be forgotten because the city itself has so much to see. But if you have some more time it is certainly worth it to go to the top of the mountain to see the Basilica of Saint Ubaldo. The basilica itself is not... More

What a beautiful Basilica. This is where they light up the whole mountain side from Gubbio up to the Basilica during Christmas. If in the Gubbio area this is a MUST see.

After saint Marks in Venice or the Duomo in Siena, well, it isn't that. Saint Ubaldo basilica is a small cloister with a big gift shop and a very nice church. The stained glass is remarkable and the organ is the first I've seen where the organist sits in front of and facing his pipes. Frankly it looks like an... More

Take the ski-lift-type thing to the top. Then visit this lovely small church set in an old convent. The church dates from various periods, most importantly, the 16th century, but it will look like a modern reproduction because the stucco was ruined in WWII (why they bombed up there, I do not know--supido!) The reconstruction looks very nice but obviously... More

Excellent view over Gubbio and the valley. Church is worth a quick visit and perfect spot to grab the funivia. Parking Available

Take the funivia to the top of the hill and visit this very nice church with a very good little museum that displays both artefacts and videos of the amazing Festa dei ceri.

Well worth a visit for architecture, art, history, culture if nothing else. Take a picnic... Plenty of beauty spots and picnic table areas in the shade with water points. Wear modest/decent clothing for visiting the basilica as they may not let you in and it's disrespectful. Or at least take cover up like a shawl/t shirt. Generally shoulders covered and... More
