This cathedral is at one of the high points in Gubbio. Ask where the elevator is, and take it to the top so that you don't have to amble up the hillside. The interior is very dark, so dark that is difficult to take any pictures. The decoration is stark and has suffered over the years. When I was there... More

The stark interior of the Doumo is home to some of the finest and best displayed C17th religious paintings by Umbrian artists. Take the free public elevator and visit a cathedral where you can enjoy the space without cost or crowds.

Beautiful church with some interesting art. The architecture is impressive though it's not one of the country's greatest treasures. There is an elevator to get you up several of the levels to the cathedral.

Interesting, huge church. It is not for the textbooks and best examples for art historians but it has it's own charm. You can walk from altar to altar, you can find your inner peace, God or simpy admire work of artists and artisans.

Very beautiful and nice place. We were lucky to see the flag-show, close to the Duomo. Nice choice of restaurants near-by and a very beautiful old town. Liked the garden of the Duomo- breathtaking view and good place to take pictures

We had never heard of Gubbio and assumed it was just another Italian hill-top town - charming but not particularly distinctive. It was early morning, so the crowded car parks sparked our interest. Through the main gate, the first square was full of flags and banners, but no people. We wandered on and up through narrow streets. Suddenly there was... More

Gubbio is one of the most picturesque places i have ever visited. The duomo is not as grand as some in Italy but it has a amazing humble feel to it and just hugs you and endears you to its charm and history. A must see !!
