Terni

Terni ©
Terni is a city in the southern portion of the Region of Umbria in central Italy. Explore Terni's surroundings by going to Borgo Medioevale e Rocca (in Arrone), Spoleto (Piazza del Duomo, Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta Spoleto, &more) and Orvieto (Duomo di Orvieto, Decugnano dei Barbi, &more). And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic scenery at Cascata delle Marmore, appreciate the history behind Palazzo del Capitano, pause for some serene contemplation at Cattedrale della Santissima Annunziata, and don't miss a visit to Piazza del Popolo.

Plan my day in Terni using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Perugia to Terni is an approximately 1- hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or take a train. In September, plan for daily highs up to 29°C, and evening lows to 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to take a bus to Cascia.

Rita, and appreciate the views at Valnerina.

Rich in culture and religious tradition, Assisi is known as the birthplace of St.
Venture out of the city with trips to Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio (in Mercatello), Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria (in Perugia) and Montioni Frantoio e Cantina (in Montefalco). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica Papale e Sacro Convento di San Francesco d'Assisi, step into the grandiose world of Rocca Maggiore, take in the spiritual surroundings of San Damiano, and contemplate the long history of Eremo delle Carceri.
