Let's experience the silent and authentic spirit of this charming, Medieval town...
One of the first things which strikes visitors to Gubbio is the homogenous nature of its look. Unlike almost any other town in Italy it seems to have been designed and built in one Medieval style which makes for a unique visit.
Throughout this delightful little town, you can breathe a silent Medieval spirit and walk along the little stairways and alleys alongside warehouses with their narrow-arched doorways, which are known as the "doors of the Deadman".
Don't be completely deceived by the sense of quietness. If you are fortunate enough to be here on the day of the Medieval 'Candle Race' you will understand why the local people have the reputation in Umbria of being quite simply, completely mad! The most magnificent work of art in the town is the imposing Palazzo dei Consoli, one of Italy's chief examples of Medieval civic architecture.
After enjoying the gorgeous panorama and the sweeping view, we will reach the 16th century Fontana dei Matti where you can earn an official 'license of madness'!
