Gubbio - Urbino

The agriturismo near Gubbio, Casa Branca, didn't seem to be a working farm at all. But, it was out in the country. Gubbio, although Medieval, was not very interesting, so we drove to Urbino and that was well worth the trip. There is a national art gallery there that had some really fine works of art.

Our agriturismo in Gubbio was the only place we stayed that had access to an English TV station. CNN international was giving good coverage of Hurricane Rita. We were very concerned for our house and dog, and was glad to see our Mayor White of Houston being interviewed.
