Palio della Balestra Gubbio

Jump to last reply

We are contemplating staying in/near Gubbio for this year's Palio della Balestra on Sunday, May 29. Would you suggest staying in Gubbio or nearby and taking a taxi into the town for the day of the Palio? Also, does anyone know when the festivities begin and end, particularly whether they begin on Saturday or just on Sunday, and what the general schedule is on Sunday. Since we would have to squeeze it in, we might only be able to stay on Sunday in Gubbio (which I am not sure I want to do. I prefer to avoid one night stays and I am not sure it would be wise to try to check in and park on a festa day. And we've never been to Gubbio, so it's unfamiliar. Having said that, maybe it would be worth it!)

And if anyone has any lodging recommendations in Gubbio or nearby, we'd welcome those, too.

p.s.: We were thinking of going to the Infiorata in Spello on May 29, but when my boyfriend heard about the Palio della Balestra, the Infiorata went off the table.
