We visited the town and discovered this magnificent place with a splendid view. The building is very nice, The museum inside is moderately interesting, except for the display of Umbrian tablets which was VERY learning.

It is a dominating historical building. This time we could see several exhibitions: historical view of torture tools, Pinacoteca, Garibaldi's uprising in Gubbio - but the most importantwere for us to study the bronze boards with ancien Umber scripts!

Previous reviewers have documented the treasures to be found here so I won't repeat those lengthy descriptions other than to summarise the fact that there is a wealth of ancient art and Gubbion historical artefacts to behold. As an example, the fact that the ancient...More
