Santuario Francescano del Presepe

Reviewed By Sharon_zz - Tel Aviv, Israel

It was a short drive from our Terni's hotel. We came for a visit on a sunny day and enjoyed the silence, the natural nature of the place. The view from the Franciscan Sanctuary of Nativity was breathtaking. The whole holy atmosphere was magical. We loved the Collection of the miniature Nativity scene and other Biblical stories miniatures. It's one of a kind collection, we have never seen anything like it. Most of the small boxes containing the biblical scene, were gifts or offerings from other Catholic churches from various countries. This Sanctuary is great place to visit with kids.

Labro

Reviewed By preglad - New York

There's something so utterly peaceful about Labro that we kept looking at its inhabitants to see if there was anything resonating in them that seemed beatific or at least collectively neurosis free. The church, the castle, the turns, up down across, the distant mountain in May yet covered in snow and the lake well off to the side below seem to whisper, "We want to be part of the show".
Point your camera in any direction. It hardly matters. Play pin the tail a la shoot me blindfolded pictures. Chances are as good as not that something pretty will wind up as a result. I expected Hansel and Gretel to make an appearance at any moment, but then woke up to realize Labro was neither a fairy tale nor the Teutonic Nordic Alps.
Just its own sweet simple brand of lovely Umbrian magic~

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.

Centro Rafting Le Marmore

Reviewed By RomanMax - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

We got a very professional training and a nice (and tough!) workout when going down .
1 -Training with theory and practice: a mix of jokes and serious instructions. It was I believe a good compromise (teach the people, help them having fun and at the same time make them aware of the risks of this sport).
2 - The real practice with a Full Metal Jacket instructor (Ciccio, hope he will not come after me now). Very forceful person that was sincerely trying to push us to the limit with hard words. But the team was composed for 5/6th of non-sporty people, so I believe he should have adjusted his target and controlled his wording a bit.
Conclusion: very nice experience if you like nature and workouts. Team work is fundamental in this sport together with a good paddling technique.

Lago di Piediluco

Reviewed By Sharon_zz - Tel Aviv, Israel

A short ride from Terni, you will find this magical peaceful lake. We took a pedal boat, and started pedaling in the lake. The atmosphere was romantic, the view was breathtaking. We saw some birds and ducks, nature at its beauty! After an hour, we returned to the lake shore, and had some coffee at the kiosk that rents the boats.

Narni Centro Storico

Reviewed By gerry p - Berkshire, United Kingdom

Beautiful hill town, with atmospheric winding lanes, an underground Roman cistern and some interesting churches. The Duomo itself is worth a visit, with its elegantly simple 11C nave, held up by what look suspiciously like looted Corinthian Roman columns. There are several crypts to explore and some gaudy Baroque additions adding some dubious bling.

Percorsi con Gusto

Percorsi con Gusto was born in 2011 from the love for cuisine and excellent food, which has to be authentic, local, away from the mechanisms of mass distribution and close to those of the short chain. Percorsi con Gusto aims to keep alive the Umbrian and italian tradition of the past, marked by a slow scan of time and by the concept of proximity and "local". Much of the Italian tradition is built around the table and the "home-cooked". It is out of this concept that comes PcG. To keep alive one of Italian greatest treasures, the cuisine.

Parco Avventura Nahar

Reviewed By Salima K - Brugge, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium

we had lot's of fun, taking the adventure course. safety first! you get good explanation, instructions and equipment (helmet, belts...) to have a safe parcours. We had a 4 year old and 7 year old with us, and the instructor did the parcours with them. there is an extra parcours for the daredevil adult, while the kids climb the wall. The course is in the wood: so nice and cool on a hot, sunny day.
we loved it!

Museo Civico Archeologico e Pinacoteca Edilberto Rosa

Reviewed By hotchocolate21 - Dublin, Ireland

We really enjoyed our visit to this super little museum. Everything was explained and marked out really well to make the whole Etruscan and Roman history very interesting. Highly recommend a visit to this museum and to view the wonderful bronze statue of Germanico.
