Terni (Umbria)

Terni is a city in the southern portion of the region of Umbria in central Italy, located in the plain of the Nera river. It was founded as an Ancient Roman town. During the 19th century, steel mills were introduced and led the city to have a role in the second industrial revolution in Italy. Because of its industrial importance, the city was heavily bombed during World War II by the Allies. It still remains an industrial hub and has been nicknamed "The Steel City" and the "Italian Manchester". Terni is also known as the "City of Lovers", as its patron saint, Saint Valentine, was born and became a bishop here, and the remains are preserved in the basilica-sanctuary in his honour. Nearby, at the confluence of the Velino and Nera Rivers, is the Cascata delle Marmore, a 165-metre-high (541-foot) waterfall.

What others are saying about Umbria

Can anyone help please? I purchased a small apartment in Umbria in October 2018. In 2019 I engaged the services of a local tradesman to clearout my basement which was kneedeep in rubble from the previous owner.

Buongiorno tutti.  We have owned a home in Ficulle for about 5 years.  Our caretaker and his wife have recently told us they will no longer be able to care for our home.  So we are in need of help to clean, care for our 80 vines, 30 very young olive trees, take care of the lawn, plants welcome gu

@Montie55 asks:

Hi everyone, we have a property in Mirabella, Panicale but live in the UK.  With not being able to get out there at the moment are looking for some help with maintenance.  Does anyone have a contact for an English speaking person or company that could help?
