Though it was slightly scary to hop into the 'birdcages' but it was definitely one of the best things to do. The views are spectacular and people of all ages will enjoy it.

Super way to get a virtual air view of Gubbio, these small cages just take two people giving a real sense of adventure

The church houses the body of the patron saint of Gubbio, Saint Ubaldo (the 12th-century Bishop Ubaldo Baldassini), kept...More

I was slightly sceptical, even though I'm not afraid of heights, but needn't have worried. You feel totally secure in the baskets and as you ascend it's totally quiet. The views are stunning and you can see for miles on a clear day - the...More

A trip not to be missed. Stunning views from beginning to end. Felt as safe as houses during the trips up and down. Cages are small only taking 2 at a time but this only adds to the experience, but if you are a family...More
