Take the funivia up the mountain and visit. Gorgeous stained glass! See the three tall Ceri that are carried through the town every year on May 15th during the Ceri Festival. The funivia (birdcage) is a really fun way to get up the mountain as see this beautiful church.
It's about 40 minutes to hike up. Or you can take the funicular, which was not working on the day i went. The view is beautiful and the walk was really good exercise. The locals do it for the exercise. It's a very peaceful church.

The stained glass windows depicting the life... 更多
A visit to the Basilica is more about the views down over Gubbio and beyond than seeing the Basilica specifically. Once up here you can also walk up to the ruins of the Rocca. It's a stiff climb, but still worthwhile.
