Very nice with good museum.

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

Beautiful location and gardens, and interesting to learn of the history of Saint Ubaldo and Francis of Assisi.

On top of the hill, at the end of the ropeway, you'll find the Basilica di Sant'Ubaldo. It's a rather modest church but with a nice and serene atmosphere. Inside you can see the casket of the Saint this church is dedicated to, the ceri which are carried uphill every 15th of may and on top of the tabarnacle the... More

Nicely situated on the Monte Ingino. Serene and pieceful church. With good views over Gubbio and surroundings. Cafetaria with good terras and friendly service. Shadow and cool drinks.

Once you arrive at the Basilica on the Funivia for the brave or walking up the mountain for the stout , you climb the steps to enter a lovely courtyard and cloister that leads to the church. The altar features a glass casket with the remains of the saint. To the side are the large Ceri that are carried down... More

We had the added fascination of a wedding in progress when we visited the cathedral so we couldn't look around as much as we might have done. Definitely worth a visit though - especially if you've taken the funivia up the hill.

After a wonderful morning walk, we reached the basilica. This church overlooks the lovely medieval town of Gubbio which is perched high on a mountainside. The church is very pretty and does contain the remains of St. Ubaldo. Much history is associated with this place. The church is the end of the annual Race of the Ceri, structures which look... More

It was a terrifying trip up the mountain on the 'ski lift' but worth the fear (I am afraid of heights). Beautiful cloisters await you as well as a fine view across Umbria. There is a cafe but it was closed when we went (April 18)

Pleasant experience visiting the basilica of St. Ubaldo, this is located at the top of Colle Eletto, there are two ways to reach this church, walking from the town center following the directions folliwing the road uphill of about 1 hour, or easily through the cable car in few minutes and effortlessly takes tourists near the basilica. Here is guarded... More
