Terni between ancient and modern

per person

Located in the south-eastern part of Umbria, surrounded by an amphitheater of hills, Terni lies on a vast plain at the confluence of the Serra river with the Nera river. Starting from the second half of the 1800s, the city was one of the first in Italy to take part in that industrial revolution which earned it the nickname “Italian Manchester”, thanks to the enormous energy source of the Marmore Falls, naturalistic park together with the Piediluco lake. In its surroundings there are also many testimonies of the glorious past of the territory.

Friday
Arrival and first walk to Terni. The current urban and architectural layout, mainly modern and dynamic, is the fruit of much of the reconstruction work carried out since the mid-1950s after heavy bombing during the Second World War. Definitely worth a visit is the Basilica of San Valentino, which houses the body of the saint, patron saint of lovers. Noteworthy are the sites and monuments of industrial archeology, a singular itinerary between disused factories and plants that are the subject of a complex recovery project: examples include the Great Hydraulic Press, used for steel processing, located in front of the railway station , and the Papigno factory, converted into film studios.

After breakfast and before returning to your destination, we suggest a stop in the immediate vicinity of Narni, where we will visit the suggestive underground Narni path, which winds through the underground areas of the San Domenico convent: aqueducts, cisterns, tunnels, crypts and even the torture chamber of the Inquisition Court, with a cell that still shows graffiti engraved by prisoners waiting to be sentenced.
