“Lovely view”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Was quiet the day we were there, beautiful and sunny and the view was terrific. Large and open, it was a great spot to sit and take in the charm of Gubbio and, of course, that view.

“Deserves more time”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Great views from this very large open piazza, constructed in good quality stone material. A great spot for the Don Matteo TV series.

“Only if you have spare time”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

By Italian city standards, Gubbio is small, not that attractive, but full of charm.
This city is ideal for those who are searching for antiquities.
Maybe one of the most amazing things about Gubbio, is seeing this walled city nestled on a mountainside from far.
Its people are very kind and friendly.

“The best kept secret in Italy, Umbria at its wonderful best.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Umbria is modest, like Tuscany but without the pomp. And if you travel around Umbria then you MUST visit Gubbio. It is modest and restrained but has enormous beauty and really amazes as you turn each corner. The people are open and friendly, prices are very reasonable and the city offers much more than the guides can tell you, just take time to walk around and take photos. And chat to the locals they all seem to enjoy a quick chat in English. Italy at its unpretentious best. Well worth several visits,as the surrounding coutryside makes driving a real pleasure.

“4th Sunday Antique Market”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Visit the ancient town of Gubbio in the afternoon on the fourth Sunday of the month to enjoy the antique/art/pottery market circling the piazza on the first level of the town. Then, walk up the hill a short way and take the public elevator to the Piazza Grande to see the view that extends for miles and miles. On the top level of the town stands the Duomo. One caveat: if you want to dine at any of the wonderful Umbrian restaurants in Gubbio, you need to have reservations for 7pm or later.
