Gubbio

Todi achieved its top during the Medieval period, when it was enriched with splendid municipal palaces and enchanting and religious buildings. You can admire the Santa Maria della Consolazione Church, the Piazza del Popolo and the ancient arches with which the houses support each other, but also the walls that are built around or incorporate what is left of the theatre of amphitheatre, such as announced by the street names (such as Via dell’Anfiteatro Romano). Gubbio is the most thoroughly medieval of the Umbrian towns. Centre-stage is the immense and austere fourteenth-century Palazzo dei Consoli, whose crenellated outline and 98-metre campanile immediately grab your attention; the setting is equally gorgeous with the forest-clad mountains of the Apennines rearing up behind. The lesser Palazzo Pretorio opposite was built to the same plan. In the Museo Civico you’ll see the famous Eugubine Tablets, Umbria’s most important archeological find. It’s also worth a visit the Duomo, the Palazzo Ducale and the Basilica of Sant’Ubaldo.
