Our hotel lobby has the perfect answer for visitors to Gubbio who want the selfie without leaving the building. This city of 33,000, with most buildings dating to the 14th and 15th centuries, is a wonderful maze of alleys and passageways that author/philosopher Hermann Hesse loved to explore. A medieval church is never more than a shout away.
On our way here, we enjoyed getting to know a family from Paris who is walking a section of the Way of St. Francis. They are Gildas and Geraldine with their 23-year-old son Gregoire. Their engaging conversation helped us conquer some steep climbs Thursday without noticing the pain. Gregoire is a political science major studying at a Paris university. He is every teacher’s dream student. He knows so much and wants to learn even more.
