Last Night in Gubbio

Christmas is on the way here in Umbria, Italy, and last night we drove the few kilometres from Bellaugello Gay Guest House into Gubbio to witness the ‘switching on’ ceremony of this marvellous tree that gaily rises almost 400 metres – yes almost four hundred metres, to the summit of Monte Ingino behind the town.

Gubbio claims this as the ‘Largest Christmas Tree in the World

Here is a link showing the event, we did have cameras, but alas were too busy enjoying ourselves to have taken any good pictures!     Daily Telegraph Video report of the lighting of the Gubbio Christmas Tree …….and the prosecco went down a treat during the fab firework display!!
