Things to do in Gubbio


Gubbio, a town in the province of Perugia, is a lovely medieval village: it’s lovely to wander along its lanes with exposed stone houses, which transport you back in time, and it’s wonderful to gaze out from its balconies over the surrounding hills 🌄.

Gubbio is known as the “gray city” not because of the low levels of pollution in the region, nor because of the unsociable nature of its residents, who are kind and courteous, but because of the compact and uniform hue of the limestone stones used to construct this magnificent hamlet.

In this brief guide, we’ll tell you what to do and see in Gubbio if you just have a day to spare.

The Roman Theater is made of limestone stones and dates back to the first century BC. It is claimed to have held 7,000 spectators at one time; presently, some remnants remain, and the monument has been fully repaired. It offers some classic shows over the summer season.


Because of the unpredictability of its residents, the Gubbio, Gubbio is known as the city of madmen. Make three circuits around the Bargello Fountain, commonly known as the Fontana dei Matti, to obtain Matto’s driver’s license.

After that, for 3.5o euros, you can get a souvenir license with your name and surname in the shop directly next to the fountain.

Largo del Bargello is home to the Bargello Fountain.

Then proceed to Piazza Grande via Via dei Consoli.

I couldn’t stop shooting photographs of the magnificent Palazzo dei Consoli with a gorgeous blue sky as a backdrop in Piazza Grande. It’s a big and interesting balcony in Umbria, and it’s one of the locations that has truly charmed me. The Museum and the Municipal Art Gallery are currently housed in the Palazzo dei Consoli, an ancient government palace.

The building, in Gothic style, is 60 meters high and dominates the city. We recommend a visit inside, where the very important Eugubine Tables are kept.

During the visit, you can access the panoramic loggia, from which you have an incredible view of Piazza Grande and the city. The Palazzo dei Consoli is located in Piazza Grande in Gubbio.

The Palazzo del Podestà, which is currently a municipal house, is in front of the Palazzo dei Consoli. You may approach the Duomo and Palazzo Ducale by turning left from Via XX Settembre. The road is mostly uphill, however, you can take a free lift to these locations from Via XX Settembre (near Piazza Grande).


Returning to Via XX Settembre and going straight (opposite Piazza Grande), you will reach the Colle Eletto cable car station, which is home to the world’s largest Christmas tree during the Christmas season. The cable car is made up of baskets suspended from a ribbon that provides a thrilling adrenaline rush: you must board on the fly and can only transport two people.

In Via San Girolamo, you’ll find the Colle Eletto cable car. Click here to see the hours of operation. It costs 4 euros one way (you may walk back) or 6 euros round trip. I recommend that you utilize it for both the descent and the return because the descent is the most stunning.

If you have time, we propose stopping in the evening ✨ to enjoy the lit Gubbio, which is very evocative and deserving of your attention.
