Gubbio is a charming medieval town just down the road from Umbertide and Perugia. The town is set against the slopes of Mt. Ingino and you requires a bit of a hike to reach the upper levels and the main piazza. But the hike is worth it. From the central piazza you will enjoy a lovely view of the church and the surrounding country side. There are plenty of ceramic stores, truffles and good food to be found in Gubbio and the people are very friendly, especially if you speak to them in Italian! It is also great fun to stop in the Don Matteo Bar - named after the famous Italian TV character - the charming priest who solves crime in Gubbio. You can find posters and TV trivia from the show while sipping an espresso.

access to the lift was very handy but be aware of closing and opening times or otherwise be prepared for a steep climb

You've struggled through the narrow streets in your car to get to the hotel. You've finally found the car park, and settled into your hotel room. Now for the reward, a glass of cold prosecco under the awnings of the Hotel Relais Ducale in the Piazza Grande. Wonderful. The Palazzo dei Consoli on one side, the Palazzo dei Podesta on the other, and beyond a wonderful landscape view of beautiful Gubbio. Bliss.

This is one of the most beautiful and elegant Renaissance squares we have seen in Italy. Worth the trip!
