Upon entering the palazzo it's hard not to imagine what it would have been like to have lived there. There are interesting artifacts and a spectacular view. Unbelievable! Buy the inclusive ticket for 12euro.

This Palazzo is one of the principal sights of Gubbio and is not to be missed. It has amazing architecture and is set above the town, imposing it's grandeur over it. Well worth a visit for art and architecture aficionados.

Didn't have time to go into this building but from the outside is very impressive. It can be reached from the Piazza Grande, there are also some nice shops and bars here.
