This is a beautiful place. Art work is gorgeous. It closes during the middle of the day so time your visit. It was peaceful just to sit and take it all in.

Just off the car park this church is almost as old as St. Francis himself. Though it needs some restoration its worth a visit and a respite from the summer sun. Great photo op with Francis statue outside (esp. for the kids).

A trip to Gubbio is a trip back into time. We walked through the town, from the base of the village where there are remains of an early auditorium, through the church, and then up to the gardens built by a local "bigwig" long ago...More
