What to Expect from Gubbio Truffle Hunting Experience

Rich in charm and history, Gubbio is the perfect place for those who love hilly areas and walks in the cities of art. Gubbio is a beautiful Umbrian town in the province of Perugia, lying on the slopes of Monte Ingino and lapped by the waters of the Camignano and Cavarello torrents. Moreover, like Assisi, it plays a special role in the history of Saint Francis: here, in fact, the encounter between the saint and the wolf took place, and here the Saint found asylum after having left Assisi.

Of ancient origin, Gubbio immediately strikes for its conformation, for its maze of buildings, houses and streets that exude history and a discreet charm at every corner. Famous in the past and still for crafts and for the processing of materials such as wood, leather, iron but above all ceramics, Gubbio is now also a popular tourist destination throughout the year, thanks to its evocative beauty made of interesting architecture, thematic itineraries and traditional events. Among the places definitely worth seeing in the city we find Palazzo dei Consoli, a Gothic-style structure located in Piazza Grande, home of the city’s civic museum.
