Well worth a visit...
May 2017 • Couples
This lovely museum is very interesting and well worth the 3 Euro entrance fee. Others reviewers have described the exhibits so I'll just add that the curator speaks English and is happy to answer any questions not covered in the guide notes. Just be aware that the exhibits are on 5 floors and the stairs may be a problem for some.

Amazing History

A must stop to truly appreciate the history of the Roman Empire. Only negative is that all plaques are in Italian and not English but still worthwhile visiting.

Ceramics lovers must visit this museum

I enjoyed this small museum. It houses an extensive collection of majolica ceramics (bigger than at the Palazzo dei Consoli) in the tower at Porta Romana. The entrance fee is small and it is well worth the visit if you are a fan of majolica. Also has a few other historical items.

I like the Eastern entrance because you can experience both old and new Gubbio here. The funivia is also close by, as is the Locanda del Cantiniere restaruant well worth a visit!

An interesting glimpse at local art and medieval architecture.

Porta Romana is is the sole survivor of the six 13th-century towers that guarded the entrances into the city. A small admission fee gains entrance to the museum of antique Umbrian ceramics housed within the tower. Because it is a tower, the ceramics are displayed on several floors of small rooms stacked one-above-the-other and connected by a steep, narrow stairway. The prize of the local museum are three very rare majolica plates produced by Gubbio's Maestro Giorgio in the early 16th century. The church of Sant' Agostino across a small plaza from the Porta Romana contains frescos by local artist Ottaviano Nelli, and the surrounding neighborhood is quite picturesque. The Funivia (cable car) station for a ride up to Monte Ingino is also very close to the Porta.

This interesting museum is housed in the tower of Porta Romana on the west side of the city. It contains a fascinating collection of ceramics, arms and other miscellaneous items, also providing an opportunity to see the inside of a gatehouse. Well worth the effort, furthermore entrance is free.
