Gubbio does not have a train station, which makes it a bit of a proper planning to get there by public transport. The nearest train station is in Fossato di Vico, approx. 20 km southeast of Gubbio. But since there are only a few busses from there, it might not make much sense to take this option. Better is to travel to Perugia and take a bus from here, there are ten busses per day to and from Perugia. Busses to and from Gubbio arrive at Piazza Quaranta Martiri, which is quite convenient since it is at the bottom of the town, inside the town walls.

Bus schedules from Perugia (Gubbio is bus no. 22).
The nearest airport is in Perugia, however this is more of a national airport. Alitalia has flights from Milano to Perugia by now. Alternative airports are Ancona or Roma (with train connection to Fossato) or Bologna.
Driving distances: Ancona – Gubbio: 1 hour, Bologna – Gubbio: approx. 3 hours. (Roma – Gubbio: no idea, but according to Google maps also approx. 3 hours).
Update, October 2010:
On most of my trips to Gubbio so far I arrive at Ancona Airport (Falconara). This is the best choice because it is a small airport with full facilities but one does not get lost. It is also not near Ancona city but some 20 km west at the coast. There is direct access to the main highway SS76, the one which leads west to Fabriano, Fossato di Vico and Perugia. I have rented cars from either Hertz or Europcar, got them very quick and was quickly out of there. The distance from the airport to Gubbio is approx. 70 km and it took me a bit more than 1 hour, but then the road has been drilled into the Appenin mountains with a lot of tunnels. I haven’t driven this road in winter yet, it might be a bit of a challenge since I am sure that it is a snow region.
One very important note though in this context: take in mind that gas stations on the superstrada open only at 6 am. On my last trip in August 2010 my flight left at 7 and I was at the airport at 5:45. Too early to fill up the car, so I had to pay additional gas filling fee. I should have talked to the Europcar guys when I picked up the car....
Ancona airport is being served by Lufthansa and other airlines. I flew Lufthansa from Frankfurt and had to change planes in Munich. From Munich it was Air Dolomiti, which codeshare with Lufthansa. It was a pleasant flight (well, two..or four if I count the return trip as well).
