the oldest city of Umbria

The blocks of limestone from which was built Gubbio, gives at the town the nickname of "gray city". Gubbio is the oldest town of Umbria, which has preserved its medieval appearance.
Gubbio has a magnificent view over the sweet hills of Umbria. As Assisi, also Gubbio is closely linked to the figure of Saint Francis in particular at the encounter with the wolf. The Church of San Francesco is the place where the wolf refuge for the night.

Leaving the Piazza Grande, the main center of the city, we recommend a tour of the monuments: from the Palazzo dei Consoli to the Palazzo del Capitolo, to the Cathedral and the Church of Santa Maria dei Servi, to learn better about the history and legends of Gubbio.

Largest tree in the world
In Gubbio you will find the largest tree in the world that lights up every year. The tree has a size of 650 by 400 meters and is made of hundreds of lights that follow the slopes of Monte Igino; So no tree in the true sense of the word, but a work of art made of lights that can be seen both from above and from the city.
