    It is not the first time I visit Gubbio but I must say it is the first time that I can watch the sunset from this square and there's only one word to describe it "spectacular"

    Who goes to Gubbio should definitely stop and see this square. Superb scenery. Possibility to use the elevator, up at a certain time. Otherwise ... "some" rung and you have arrived. Not to be missed.

    A jewel that warms the heart. Real nice. When we were wards of the city were preparing for a big party and vintage clothes boys roamed the city preceded by drums and banners advertising the dinners that would be held in the evening in the streets of the city.
