Gubbio (Umbria)

Gubbio is a town in the province of Perugia (Umbria). The historical centre of Gubbio has a decidedly medieval aspect: the town is austere in appearance because of the dark grey stone, narrow streets, and Gothic architecture. Gubbio is home to the Corsa dei Ceri, a run held every year always on the 15th day of May

What others are saying about Umbria

I am trying to find my Italian roots.  I have documents for my grandfather but I want to find his parents and grandparents.

I have names in my grandmother's line but I need help to validate my findings.  What sources can I use while I am in Italy.

Hi, does anyone have any recommendations for where to find an Italian/English speaking caretaker for a property we're buying in Umbria? 

@joncoh asks:

Hi there - it's time to renew our house/contents insurance, and yet again Intasure have bumped up their premium, this time by nearly 20%, despite the fact that we have never claimed, and they have also removed earthquake cover.
