Day 8-Gubbio, 9-16-14

Breakfast then bus trip to Gubbio. Gubbio is a good-sized hill town from probably over 2 thousand years ago.  It is so steep that they have a couple of elevators to take people up to different stages. 
Tablets were discovered here that were only recently transcribed that were created in about 2 BC  and describe the way people worshiped in these regions before that time. There is a park there where 41 people were lined up and shot during WWII. It was market day and we enjoyed roaming through the stalls. I had my pork sandwich for 2.50 Euro. They have a roasted whole pig-still warm-and shave off the meat. We visited two museums and we saw a few more churches, one was total simplicity (beautiful)-see photo. They have a 2-person basket that takes you to the top-like a ski lift-but it was starting to rain and closed when we got there. We have become like billy goats and don't mind climbing anymore.
