Italy Off The Beaten Path: 430 reviews and 602 photos
Somehow Gubbio seems to have escaped the tourist hordes, which is not to say that you won't find any there, more that they are not there in abundance.
So it was when I arrived there on market day yet was able to walk elsewhere and find very few people.
I had trouble locating the Fontana dei Matti (Fountain of the Mad) as there was hardly anyone to ask and the guide book doesn't list it as such but calls it the Bargello Fountain.
As it turns out I had passed it once already. Compared to just about any other fountain in Italy it really doesn't rate, save for the legend that says if you walk around it three times you will go mad.
Since I had already spent a few hours driving the streets of Palermo, Catania and Syracuse a week earlier I felt I was already well qualified.
