Terni

Terni is the second largest city of Umbria and also a main centre of the region. In spite of its modern appearance due to the industrial development of a large steel industry, Terni hides some significant art treasures. 

HALF-DAY TOUR

Church of San Salvatore: probably one of the oldest surviving buildings of the city, it is a unique circular early-Christian building completed in the Romanesque age. Some interesting frescoes inside

Palazzo Spada: once a private aristocratic palace, and now the local town hall, the palazzo is an imposing 16th cen. Building, to be visited on request

Roman Amphitheatre: this ancient venue for gladiator games in Roman Terni has been recently restored to show traces of the original structure. Still in use for summer plays and concerts
