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

The basilica is located on top of a hill on Gubbio and it's reachable through a foot path or cableway. Both ways offer terrific views on the below city. The church houses inside the "ceri", big "columns" taken to the city during a yearly procession.

Nice view from the environs of the church. The inside of the Basilica is interesting because of the architectural use of multiple arches.

The basilica on top of the hill is quite interesting, especially for teenagers who thought there was an embalmed body on top of the altar. However the best part was the wonderful trip up on the telerifico. The carriages only fit 2 comfortably standing and initially feel quite precarious, however once you get used to it, the views are amazing,... More

The basilica is a short walk from the top of the cable car. We were lucky enough to see it decked in flowers from a recent wedding and it looked beautiful. It houses the body of Saint Umbaldo in a glass coffin and has the most vivid stain glass windows.

This basilica is so peaceful to visit and beautiful. It is a short walk from the little cable cars. When we were here there was a bronze exhibition by sculpter Rabbini Luigi which was fantastic. There is still evidence of murals on the walls. There are some translations in English which is really helpful. Well worth a visit.
