Cascata delle Marmore

Reviewed By Colophon - Portland, Oregon

The Romans drained a swampy valley by creating a waterfall (cascata) into the larger valley of the Nerni River near the present-day Terni. Today, the water is also used for power, so the falls are fed only part of the day. It's gorgeous, but to get the full effect it's important to be at the base early so you can watch the falls being "turned on" and experience the growing density of the billowing mists that follow the flow. We were there with an art class practicing "wet on wet" water color. No sweat getting wet, but there's a cafe on hand with warming drinks.
Ten years ago, we'd come here and been disappointed. It was at the end of a long weekend and the park was not only still crowded, but trash was piled everywhere and the restrooms were gruesome. This time, it was a lovely day with few tourists, no trash, and clean facilities. A treat. We made art. We got soaked. We loved it.
What we have not yet done is hike the trails to the top of man-made cataract, but we have hiked into the larger park behind it from the other side. Lots of trails for hikers, bikers, and horse riders.

Carsulae - Parco Archeologico

Reviewed By Victoria L - Kansas City, Missouri

This is a little hidden gem of Roman ruins that is currently still in the process of being uncovered. There is a line of ruins including a portion of Roman road you can walk along imagining yourself heading for the Amphitheater, forum or the area that was housing, you see the Amphitheater currently used for presentation, remnants of the forum, thermal baths not now really visible but a portion of mosaic floor is in the museum, the church of Saints Cosma and Damiano built in the 9th century using a prexisting building from the first or second century features alabaster in the windows. There was no one there so we rambled at our own pace , it would be great for kids who could run and explore. The small museum is also interesting for the collection of artifacts they have unearthed, a highlight is the almost life size Lion used to show the inevitability of death. Well worth a morning!

We began the walk through the woods to the the Marmore Falls from above as the group was composed of older people and it's quite a hike uphill. Also you can follow the water as the small stream gathers in volumn and turns into a thundering mass that becomes a roaring,leaping,photographer's challenge,impossible to capture the complete experience of being covered in rainbow-reflected spray and deaf to all but the sound of the waterfall.

Basilica san Valentino

Reviewed By BGCLondon - London

It was a quiet but sunny late morning in May when we visited. The Basilica is tucked away in a side street in Terni. It is small in comparison to others - and there were not many visitors so that in itself was a bonus for us. We entered to violin music - there was a wedding there in the next hour - and enjoyed an uninterrupted and peaceful wander around the interior - go behind the altar where they have the real tomb of San Valentino - and then sat outside in the Sunshine and watched the wedding party arrive with the rest of the locals - lovely, simple, atmospheric and somehow romantic because of the lack of any hype or touristy features.

This Church has a unique structure. It is a round building with some extinct parts that were added over the centuries. It is located on a small street, not far from the city hall. We didn't get to visit the church from inside, as it was closed.

Chiesa San Francesco d’Assisi

Reviewed By iperspazio - Province of Terni, Italy

Historical Research of the Sanctuary of San Franceco in Terni
 In the past it wanted to give the architectural project to Brother Filippo da Campello to the similarity of the original structure with those of St. Chiara and St. Francesco of Assisi.
In reality it is a common correspondence to numerous examples of Umbrian Franciscan.
 Dates back to the fourteenth century the construction of the Paradisi chapel, home of the beautiful frescoes by Bartolomeo di Tommaso from Foligno.Il first building dates from the second half of the thirteenth century, precisely in 1265, when the oratory donated by Bishop Rainerio to St. Francis in San Cassiano. After the death of the saint of Assisi, of design of Filippo da Campello was transformed into a convent. In 1437 it was modified with three naves and had added the chapel of San Bernardino; was later rebuilt in the seventeenth century and renovated after the earthquake of 1703. Of the original structure remains the exterior now where in the middle part has a Gothic portal surmounted by a large oculus. Of artistic merit even the decorations in polychrome pottery of the ornate bell tower with mullioned windows and Gothic arches and twisted four lights [1], by Angelo da Orvieto (1345) and the frescoes in the Paradisi Chapel (1) by Bartolomeo di Tommaso da Foligno from the XV century. In 1927 the San Francisco parish was entrusted to the Salesians. During the Second World War it was heavily damaged by Allied bombing. In 2005 he was proclaimed the sanctuary.

Reviewed By ricochet78 - Genoa, Italy

Nei luoghi di culto spesso non si incontra la spiritualità ma l’arte. Qui forse manca la ricchezza e l’opulenza e proprio per colpisce e piace. Incredibile la scalinata esterna. Bellissimo il timbro a disposizione dei pellegrini del cammino francescano e della Francigena.

We had direct access, through a small gate, into the park from our lovely hotel Bizzoni. We went there in the afternoon, when the last rays of sun were shining through the high trees. In the morning, we saw the joggers of Terni, from our table at the breakfast room.

Entrata 8€ a testa lettino 4€ ombrellone 3€ panini bibite gelati e caffè! Volano via poco meno di 40/45 € a testa. Sai che c'è la prossima volta con gli stessi soldi si va nella prima località di mare. Vuoi mettere la spiaggia con la sabbia al posto dello "spoglio" prato e il mare con l'acqua al cloro? Oppure il caldo appiccicoso e umido con la brezza marina?
