Gubbio

Gubbio is a medieval gem built of warm pink stone, dating back at least as far as the Umbrians who preceded the Etruscans. We travel through the Umbrian countryside and along the Tiber valley to Gubbio where a walk with stunning views beckons us. After a picnic lunch a visit to the church of St. Ubaldo, perched on the edge of the hillside and inside the relic of the saint himself. We descend by cable car to explore the medieval town, admire the local ceramics, visit the Roman amphitheatre and see the Egubine tablets in the Palazzo dei Consoli. Afterwards relax and observe the locals with a refreshing drink in the magnificent Piazza Grande. (4hrs/8miles)
