    One of the most beautiful and imposing public buildings of Italy. Beautiful view on the inside, where you can admire the Eugubine tables. Very nice view

    The Civic Museum of Gubbio is in Palazzo dei consoli and there are various sections, all interesting, archaeological collection, Oriental collection and collection risorgimento, then picture gallery and pottery section. I found it very interesting and the views from the top are magnificent. get ready to scale, there are many!

    There are not enough words to describe the feelings that you try visiting the palazzo dei Consoli in Gubbio. It feels just like going back in time and it is all very fascinating. Congratulations because you also kept up very well.

    Fantastic looking building. There was a festival on, which meant we could not get inside, hence not a 5. The festival itself was great. The festival of the candles.

    Interesting but small collection of artworks and pottery.

    The museum is great, with a really comprehensive collection of items showcasing the history of the region over thousands of years. The highlight is the tablets in the ancient (and now lost) Umbrian language. It's also worth visiting just to see the inside of the building which is one of the best in the city.

    Great place for the view, with only one bar on the square it is not full of stuff either and has a nice open feel.

    The festivals here are taken very seriously. A great day for all !
