After passing through old narrow alleys, stores and cafes, we finally reached the piazza which is a contrast to Gubbio's alleys--huge and open. You can enjoy the panorama view of the old town below and the fields nearby, sit on the old stairs for a break or sip a coffee in one of the cafes beside the piazza. There are... More

Gubbio is an austere and hilly town, of of the beaten path but worth a visit. The Piazza Grande is at the top of the steep slope where Gubbio is built. Surrounded on 3 size by medieval palaces it opens on the town below and the valley. On a clear day you can see large part of Tuscany and Umbria.... More

Besides the historic significance of the Piazza, the view overlooking the city of Gubbio is spectacular.

Honestly, we were only in Gubbio for something to do on a chilly day that threatened rain. We were glad we went. It is a beautiful town with the Piazza Grande as the show piece. Two pieces of information: 1. The town is very steep and there are free elevators to get you from level-to-level. 2. Bathrooms are public pay... More

This is the first real top attraction of Gubbio, the city center, the famous Piazza Grande, a large square literally crowed of tourists at all hours of the day, a beautiful panoramic view from here down to see the Roman amphitheater , and the beautiful Palazzo dei Consoli that houses the museum. An idyllic atmosphere, all adorned this magnificent medieval... More

We were staying near Perugia so did a day trip to Gubbio. This was made easy as we had a hire car, it also meant we could stop anytime we saw something interesting to photograph or even do short walks. The countryside was so green, with stone buildings and orchards, trees lined up along tops of hills. As soon as... More

Gubbio is a stunning Renaissance jewel and the Piazza is the focal point. The main car park is by the Roman theatre (there are many better Roman theatres in Italy) and you walk up the hill through beautiful narrow streets until you reach the Piazza - and an amazing view. When we visited the Piazza was being set up for... More

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!
