Wonderful walk up the mountain - even in hot conditions as the path is shaded and small chapels on the way offer fresh water straight from the mountain. Take the gondola back down. It's very cheap and great fun while soaking up breathtaking views.

The easy way to see the mummified body of saint ubaldo is to take the cable car. But the best way is to park at the Roman amphitheatre and meander up and up through the medieval city, through the city wal at Porto ubaldo. From there there's a wide, winding path right up to the Basilica steps. After refreshment from... More

Had a tranquil, if steep, walk to the basilica. There were a few fountains along the way to refill water bottles, which was much appreciated. Inside the basilica courtyard was quiet and the church itself was lovely. We, of course, admired St. Ubaldo's remains and also the massive "ceri" from the yearly festival. The stained glass windows depicting the life... More

A beautiful Basilica with courtyard in a peaceful, inspiring mountain top setting. The Basilica with San Ubaldo's coffin is of interest but the close encounter with the Ceri, their history and purpose is even more interesting. See the short movie about the traditional festival screened in the museum above the gift shop. Definitely worth viewing. The ride up to the... More

Amazing history and architecture. Definitely worthwhile making the time to visit in Gubbio even if you are not Roman Catholic.

A visit to the Basilica is more about the views down over Gubbio and beyond than seeing the Basilica specifically. Once up here you can also walk up to the ruins of the Rocca. It's a stiff climb, but still worthwhile.

We walked up the hill to this church and it was well worth the effort. Gubbio has a lot of tradition and history and is a very interesting place to visit. The church at the top is spectacular. We especially loved lightening a candle which were not real candles but LED when you put in your money the candle lit... More

My husband and I ended up here after taking the "birdcage"/funivia from the old town of Gubbio to the top. The ride to the top (and back down afterwards) was great and we are so glad we did it! The church sits atop Mount Ingino, outside central Gubbio. Unbeknown to us, the body of the patron saint of Gubbio, Saint... More

The trip to the basilica is great fun - the funicular is a standing cage and to ride, one needs to hop into the cage at the bottom and hop out at the top. (the funicular slows down, but does not stop) While ascending the mountain, views of chickens and goats pass by and, at one point, the pine forest... More
