Gubbio – Umbria

Gubbio is one of the most perfect of Umbria’s medieval hill towns, as its atmospheric streets and alleys are unspoiled and not on the main tourist trail. The town is set at the feet of the Apennines and the views from all around are quite spectacular. The main square is halfway up the town and houses the Palazzo dei Consoli, which is a vast 14th century palace.

There is a great walk to the Basilica which is high above Gubbio. It takes a good hour or so but there is also a funicular (cable car) that will take you there – either way it is worth it for the views.

Approx 30 mins drive.
