“Fantastic”

Funivia Colle Eletto
Ranked #1 of 1 Transportation in Gubbio
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Gubbio is a lovely old city to walk around with some great views from the town square.
The cable car is something else - it takes you to the top of the local mountain (more lovely views, very good restaurant at the top), and it does so in a unique manner. Going up is great, but coming down the cage that you stand in gives fantastic and unrestricted views out over Umbria.
The staff manage the cable car extremely well - they look after people with reduced mobility, or small children, so that it really is a ride that anyone can, and should, do.

We loved Gubbio. It's true that there are not a lot of "attractions" in the town, but the character and spirit of the town itself was the biggest attraction for us. I was quite surprised to see the stand up cages, but they afford a better view and I think they are actually safer than your typical chair lift. I could have ridden this a few more times, as it was so enjoyable and very reasonably priced for our family of five. There is a short walk at the top to visit St Ubaldo in his very peaceful setting. If you are in Gubbio, and the weather is nice, don't miss this. One of our party was in ill health and not moving very quickly, but the Funivia operators were very accommodating and stopped the ride so she could embark and debark, so don't worry about needing to be a top athlete to get on and off this ride.

This is fantastic take you to the top in style !!! well organised and although it looks like a health and safety nightmare I did it and I am far from agile and past retirement age. Two to a cage but I would do as we did on the way back down and have one each, makes it easier to get on and off and allows greater mobility to look around as you go up and down. At the top the poor old saint is in a glass case but tastefully displayed. Views over the valley are superb........ do it, its well worth it.

On a cold Christmas day on a family walk needed to have a drink after a visit to church and on Christmas morning this little restaurant/bar/cafe was most welcoming. The host was most welcoming and polite even though when we arrived on this morning we were the only ones there. After ordering a bottle of Prosecco he brought out beautiful little complimentary snacks which were very nice indeed. More so, the Prosecco was no more than €14 and it was very good quality. You would not find this anywhere in the UK. From here you can sit outside and view the whole of the Umbrian and Gubbio countryside - just beautiful- it will make you speachless. Gratzie mille
