Art Museum
“In the evocative architectural complex of the Palazzo dei Conservatori, which was Palazzo del Comune and which saw Piero della Francesca as Town Councilor, there are important collections of paintings from the 4th to the 18th century. The works by Piero della Francesca, born and died in Sansepolcro, are of exceptional interest: the Resurrection, the polyptych of the Madonna della Misericordia, the San Giuliano and the San Lodovico. On display are also works by Raffaellin Dal Colle, Signorelli, Pontormo, Matteo di Giovanni, Santi di Tito, Cantagallina and others; a section in the basement is dedicated to archeology with numerous findings from the Bronze and Iron Ages.”

Art Gallery
“La sede dell’arte del Cambio venne costruita da Bartolomeo di Mattiolo e da Lodovico di Antonibo tra il 1452 ed il 1457 nell’ala nuova del Palazzo dei Priori. Attualmente si accede da un ambiente stretto e lungo, detto Sala dei Legisti perché divenne la loro sede ufficiale agli inizi del seicento. Segue la Sala delle Udienze, tra i più grandi esempi di arte rinascimentale. Gli arredi lignei interni sono di Domenico del Tasso (1491-1500) le imposte lignee di Antonio Bencivenni (1501). La decorazione a fresco è un capolavoro di Pietro Vannucci, detto il Perugino, che si avvalse di vari collaboratori (1496-1500). Nell’adiacente Cappella di San Giovanni la parte lignea spetta al Bencivenni (c. 1”

Scenic lookouts

City
“Civita di Bagnoregio, ad appena 30 minuti in macchina, chiamata anche "la città che muore" è senz'altro da visitare. Un piccolo paese posto nella valle dei calanchi collegata esclusivamente da un ponte pedonale. Quando c'è la nebbia, Civita sembra quasi sospesa in aria. Ideale sia per le famiglie che per le coppie che vogliono concedersi una giornata romantica.”

Waterfall
“It's one of the highest waterfalls in Europe, located in a wide natural park, 7.5 km from Terni. Very nice restaurants or little "trattoria" on the way to Marmore, where you can taste local food such as boar meat, porchetta, homemade ciriole, tartufo.”

Sculpture Garden
“La Scarzuola is difficult to define: architecture, mystic, philosophy, art, follie? Beautiful sculpture and arts parcs, a bit further away, but not to miss: Parco di Daniel Spoerri (Seggiano), il GIardino dei Tarocchi (Capalbio)”

Historic Site
“Carsulae is an ancient Roman city. It takes 20 minutes to get to the site, from downtown. Here, it is possible to admire what remains of one of the most great and ancient civilization in history. The site is merged in the green of nature. You can step into sheep sometimes. Unfortunately, the streets are not so nice to reach the site but it worths a visit if you are in Terni. ”
