Gubbio is a charming medieval town just down the road from Umbertide and Perugia. The town is set against the slopes of Mt.

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

Great views from this very large open piazza, constructed in good quality stone material. A great spot for the Don Matteo TV series.
