Gubbio is a lovely small walled medieval city in Umbria in central Italy. It is located to the northeast of Perugia on the slopes of Monte Ingino. The city's history dates back to the Pre-Roman era.

Get in

By train

In a country well-served by railways Gubbio is unusual in that the closest station, on the Rome-Ancona line, is 18 km away at Fossato di Vico station. There is a bus service from there. An alternative is to take the train to Perugia and take a bus from there (40 km).

By road

If coming from the north coast (e.g. if you were driving down the coast from Venice) leave the A14 Autostrada at Fano.

From the north on the A1 Autostrada, exit at Arezzo. From Rome and the south exit the A1 at Orte and follow signs to Perugia and then to Gubbio.

By air

The airport at Perugia has flights from Milan and London Stansted.

Get around

Within the walls, traffic is restricted, so be prepared to walk, if you are physically able.
