Terni has preserved a historic centre of great cultural importance with monuments such as the Church of St Francis and the Paradise Chapel, the Church of St Alò, the Church of St Salvatore, the Church of St Pietro, the Cathedral, the Roman Amphitheatre, Palazzo Spada, the "Arrow of Light" Obelisk and the Basilica of St Valentine, where the body of the Saint is housed.
In Terni the visitor has the opportunity to discover a townscape which is not to be found in other Umbrian cities, that of a modern city, and one which was an important site in the Industrial Revolution. The city was once home to important figures such as the writer Cornelio Tacito and the Emperor Marco Claudio Tacito.
Just moments from Terni one can find sites of spectacular and unspoilt beauty, such as the world famous Marmore waterfalls, the highest in the whole of Europe, and the Piedilugo Lake. Those visiting Terni in May will be able to participate in the Cantamaggio, a traditional event with rituals of dance and song in honor of the Spring.
