brilliant little cages giving a superb view of gubbio and then lovely walks when you get to the top. There's even a restaurant which will pick you up and take you 5 minutes down the road for good food.

Taking a ride in the open air “cage” was a great experience. Spectacular views of the area and wonderful church at the top. If you are adventurous either hike up or down and enjoy the countryside!

This trip up the hillside in the birdcages was enjoyable. The most difficult part was hopping on, but from there it was all about taking in the view of the city below. We were there on a clear day and were able to see for...More

A great way to reach the Basilica at the top of the hill above Gubbio, where the 'candles' used in the annual race are stored. Apart from the wonderful views over the city and countryside, the ride itself is great fun in the 'bird cages'....More

Nice way of getting to the Basilica of Sant' Ubaldo. 2 persons are guided into an open 'standing-cage' and are slowly lifted up the hill. On top of the hill you get a nice view over de town. Nice attraction for kids too.

Of the 7 people in our family group, 4 swore after driving up and seeing the "bird cages", that they were NOT going up under any circumstances. Well, long story short, they went and it's the activity they talk about the most since our trip...More

The day was cold and windy but we were not leaving Gubbio without riding the funicular. I was happy to learn both my husband and I could ride in the same basket. Getting on and off is tricky as one must jump in and out...More
