Italian mortgages for a place in Italy’s popular Umbria region
If you are looking at Italian mortgages, the city of Terni in southern Umbria may just appeal to you. Just 40 minutes away from Rome by train, Terni is an overlooked area in this fashionable region and would make the ideal setting for commuters to Rome or those looking for a place in Umbria without the six figure price tag.
Despite its heavy bombardment during the Second World War, Terni still boasts some impressive monuments and a wonderfully quaint old city centre which creates an interesting juxtaposition against the modern architecture which dominates most of the city today.

A short distance away from the town is the impressive Marmore waterfalls which reach 165 metres in height making them the highest waterfalls in Europe. Also just outside the city and well worth a visit is the ruins of Carsulae, an ancient Roman city devastated by earthquake.
Food in Terni is typical of Umbrian cuisine. Based on family traditions with fresh and natural flavours, Umbrian food is all about pasta. The three local specialities include strascinati, umbrici and cariole ternana which are long thick types of tagliatelle made with a dough that contains water as well as eggs and dressed with oil, garlic and chilli pepper.

Umbrian dishes are also often flavoured with a grating of the local black truffles found around Norcia which have a beautifully rich nutty taste.
Umbria is one of Italy’s smallest regions and arguably one of its most beautiful. Its lush rolling hills are dotted with castles, fortresses and watch towers, giving the area a fairy tale like charm. With such stunning landscape, it is easy to see why the region generally comes with such a high price tag.

Terni is therefore the ideal place for those who want a property in Umbria that is affordable yet still within reach of the region’s beautiful landscape and within commuter distance of Rome.
