  • The most beautiful place to visit in the city. Go to Gubbio and did not visit the Palazzo dei Consoli is like eating a carbonara without eggs and bacon ... UNMISSABLE

  • Only the incredible Eugubine tables deserve a visit to this museum. The building is beautiful and well cared for, the collection is very interesting and the staff in the ticket office are friendly. At the midway point, there is also a terrace with a nice view over the city and on the main square. Fabulous location! :-)

  • This impressive and unique architectural complex dominates the entire Valley and is presented to the tourist with all its austere simplicity. The art collection inside alone would be worth the visit but the context in which it appears often steals the eye at beautiful works of art. Huge vaulted halls daring and suspended to unbelievable heights refer to the glories of the past visible now in cinematic reconstructions. La loggia suspended in view of the Valley offers a panorama of incredible beauty.

  • 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.
  • Majestic
  • On 15 may each year in Gubbio celebrates the festa dei ceri, unique, spectacular and exciting event. Origins and traditions persist, the city and beautiful, the view and the facilities amazing. The Eugubini also are great people, ospitalie and very close to the city

  • Unfortunately the study by Federico da Montefelòtro is no longer the original one but the square and the Palace are worth a visit for the views of the hills from Gubbio and medieval atmosphere that reigns
