“Worth the jump into a 2 man basket. Great Kid activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

We parked at the public parking lot and walked down the long street to the funicular past a statue of Umbaldo. There is a sign that says to go down the street, however it is a very long walk with no sign along the way to let you know that you are going the right way. A statue of the patron saint of Gubbio is along the way. Finally found the place and there was a parking lot there.
We bought our tickets and waited on the patform to get into the little baskets. We could not watch anyone else get on as there was no one there. So it was a little exciting to run and jump into the 2 man basket with the help of the attendant. Getting on at the bottom was quite the shock, but I was a pro by the time we came back down. The view is breath-taking. The church at the top is worth the trip where the body of the patron saint, Ubaldo lays in the front of the church. We listened to a tour box in the back of the church which was very informative. After walking around for a while. we stopped at one of the cafes to have cappucino. November is a great time to go as there is no one there and the operators are VERY happy to see you. Very enjoyable activity.

“Unique cable car to a great view (and food)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

For 5 euros you can ride to the top and enjoy a great view of Gubbio. The restaurant at the top was more than decent. I actually preferred it to several of the other meals I had in Umbria.
The ride is in very unique gondola/cages, and the lift shuts down for a few hours around lunch, so check the schedule before you wonder off to see Saint Ubaldo at the bascilica near by.
