Gubbio is a city of stone, stern and stately, and splendid for its slightly austere charm. Gubbio, with its ancient origins and profound, Medieval character (still alive today), attracts an enormous amount of tourists every year. The city's strong ties to tradition culminate in the Corsa dei Ceri every May 15th. It is an event like no other, parvaded by an atmosphere of symbolism and legend, lived with intensity by all those that witness it. It is not by chance that the Ceri are by now the symbol for the entire Region of Umbria. From Piazza Grande to the Bargello Fountain, a stroll through this jewel of a city means jumping into a time long ago!
