The church was beautiful and it was fun to see the ceri used in the annual run up to the church. However, the long walk up was too much for me on a hot day but perfect for more seasoned hikers. The funicular proved to be too scary to try but the bolder among you will want to give it... More

I visited Basilica di Sant'Ubaldo last month by walking up a beautiful well marked trail that starts at the Civico Cimitero that is just on the outskirts of Gubbio. I was mainly interested in doing this trail walk but I was rewarded with a great "bonus" once I got to the basilica. The associated museum helped me understand the ongoing... More

There was nothing spectacular about this Basilica (except for the walk or ride up the mountainside, which was phenomenal), but the vibe of the place was simply extraordinary.

The ascending to the Basilica of Saint Ubaldo up on the mountain has to be one of the most important things to do when one visits Gubbio. Here one understands the devotion and the continuation of the XIth c. ritual od the Ceri which unifies all Gubbians in their differences.

A basilica on top of the hill - a sombre but quietly peaceful church holding the "Tre Ceri" - (Three Cancdles) that are raced around the town. Very cool even in the heat of the day. Magnificent views from the top as well as ample parking(free)

Not large, but also not crowded. Worth the visit to see the huge "Ceri" (candles), which are the signature symbol of the state of Umbria. View is magnificent at the top of the hill overlooking the town.

Made a trek up here from the cable car and i feel it was worth it. Good information about the Cera and a nice enough church.
