There are a series of elevators which will take you up the steepest portion of the hill to Piazza della Signoria and behind the Cathedral further up. Nevertheless, some incline is unavoidable. If you can handle some moderate steps and incline, you should be OK.

Thanks for your response. The last time I was there was 50 years ago, when I was young and "fit"!!

Hi Suzanne,

I visited Umbria with a knee injury last year....not ideal but still manageable and thoroughly enjoyable! I found the elevators in Gubbio fantastic! There were still some inclines though. We stayed near Spoleto which also had some elevators. Narni also had elevators right into the centre of the town, which was an absolute treat as I hadn't been expecting them and once you were up in the town there weren't many steep hills to climb.

Hope this helps and have a lovely trip.

It is steep but there are now 2 elevators that will take you to the Piazza Grande and then the Duomo - there is still some walking up steep cobbled slopes required, but if you take it slow and wear good comfortable shoes it is manageable. Also make a trip to the tourist office in the piazza quaranta marteri - as they can give you a map and show you the least steep ways of walking. Also take the Funivia - funicular to the top of the mountain for stunning views...Gubbio is so beautiful I highly recommend you visit! Buon Viaggio!
