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.

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.

Was quiet the day we were there, beautiful and sunny and the view was terrific. Large and open, it was a great spot to sit and take in the charm of Gubbio and, of course, that view.
