Gubbio

dav

Wherever you look in Gubbio, there’s another great view of this wonderful city.

 

I looked across at the Roman amphitheatre that held 15,000, to the town that’s little changed since the fifteenth century.

It’s majestic and  it was a special place for St Francis when he visited in 1206 and tamed the wild wolf that was terrorising the population.

 

Just beside the city walls is this wonderful statue.
