A friend recommended that we visit Gubbio while we were in Italy for Christmas. We took a train from Rome, exiting at the closest train station in Fossato di Vico. We then boarded a bus for the 12 mile trip to Gubbio. This medieval hill town is in the Umbria region of central Italy. Our trip took about 3hrs. and,... More

We love to go to Gubbio near Christmas time. They have a way of celebrating that even heretics like me can enjoy. Browse this piazza and the streets and enjoy. The Christmas tree on the side of the mountain is, supposedly the largest in the world. I don't doubt it!

I recommend any visit to Gubbio because as small as it is, there is a lot to see. The pink Duomo is one with an unforgettable fresco by il Pinturicchio.

Gubbio is a charming medieval town just down the road from Umbertide and Perugia. The town is set against the slopes of Mt. Ingino and you requires a bit of a hike to reach the upper levels and the main piazza. But the hike is worth it. From the central piazza you will enjoy a lovely view of the church... More

You've struggled through the narrow streets in your car to get to the hotel. You've finally found the car park, and settled into your hotel room. Now for the reward, a glass of cold prosecco under the awnings of the Hotel Relais Ducale in the Piazza Grande. Wonderful. The Palazzo dei Consoli on one side, the Palazzo dei Podesta on... More

An amazing view which houses the Palazzo Ducale. Stunning place to take a breather on the walk up to the cable car.

We only had a few rainy, cold hours to spend in Gubbio, but we'll go back in better weather. The Piazza Grande is the focal point of this lovely, steep city, every nook and cranny of which begs to be explored.
