Few regions are like Umbria, capable of arousing such intense emotions.<br>For the visitor, crossing this region with different profiles and multiple souls is like entering into a dimension where spiritual suggestions, artistic testimonies and environmental highlights perfectly complement each other.<br>Museums and archaeological parks will make you experience a journey through time and history.

The best preserved Roman archeological monument in the city was built in the first half of the first century, during the reign of Julio-Claudian family (a popular name for the first five Roman emperors: Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero). It could host over ten thousand spectators with the huge elliptical arena, almost one hundred meters long and seventy-three meters wide.

Anfiteatro Fausto was named after Faustus Titius Liberalis Sevirus Augustalis, when an inscription had been found of his stating he had, at his own expense built a monument. It was thought the amphitheatre was the monument but that theory is now questioned. Built 1st century AD, it measures 98.5 metres long and 73 metres wide and was able to accommodate 10,000 spectators, although a good deal of it still lies under surrounding buildings. The amphitheatre still retains some of its dual coloured opus reticulatum. It was closed when we were there but we were very fortunate, as someone was working there and let us in to have a quick peek, which was wonderful. It appears it is closed unless used for performances, which is a real shame.

When you visit Terni, don't miss this archeological attraction. The ruins of the Roman Amphitheater, is near Terni's Cathedral. This is proof that Terni was an important city during the Roman Empire period. I loved the 2 colored wall, which was named: "Opus reticulatum". You will be able to see the original oval shape of the Amphitheater

beautiful example of roman anphiteatre. In Summer is also used for Opera. Unfortunately is not always open. Is worth a visit with a good guide.
