Focus on Gubbio: history

Going on holiday in a Gubbio farmhouse is like taking a step back in time. Gubbio is in fact a splendid town that seems to have remained unchanged since the Middle Ages and as such it is rich in history and monuments of particular interest, one more beautiful than the other. As evidence of its beauty is the fact that it has often been the site of film and television sets.

Its roots date back to well before the Roman era, of which the beautiful Amphitheater is still clearly visible. In fact, the Eugubine tables were found in Gubbio, evidence of the occupation by the Umbrian population of this territory.

We said town because Gubbio does not reach 35,000 inhabitants but despite this you will need a fair amount of time to visit it. The small number of inhabitants and its particular position, make that since ancient times it has been the scene of particular encounters such as that between San Francesco and the Wolf as well as special finds as evidenced by the other number of fossils found in its vicinity.

Gubbio is located on the slopes of Mount Ingino which dominates the valley below on which you can climb with the special funicular to enjoy a breathtaking view that you will not easily forget, as indeed we hope, your holiday in a Gubbio half-board farmhouse.

What to see during your vacation in a farmhouse in Umbria in Gubbio

During your stay in one of the Gubbio farmhouse you will probably think often of finding yourself in a distant era. In fact, it will be easy to confuse you given the medieval atmosphere you breathe.

Especially if your visit starts from the beautiful Piazza Grande, the real center of the town which is a beautiful panoramic terrace. On the square there is also the Palazzo dei Consoli dating back to the first half of the 14th century and now the Civic Museum which, thanks to its particular architectural profile, has become the symbol of Gubbio.

Among the things you can’t absolutely miss during your holiday in Gubbio there is also the Basilica of Sant’Ubaldo, the patron saint of the city which is located at the top of Mount Ingino. To visit it you will be faced with a dilemma. You can choose to go up the slopes of the mountain on foot or to take the comfortable but, for the less adventurous and for those suffering from dizziness, a frightening cable car.

Among the other things you can’t miss, there are also the Palazzo Ducale, former historical residence of the Duke of Urbino Federico di Montefeltro, the Duomo and the splendid Via de ‘Consoli with the Bargello palace and much more.

So much more that probably one day will not be enough to see everything and you will have to return to your farmhouse in Gubbio before continuing your tour.
