The station of Terni was activated in 1866, at the same time as the inauguration of the Rome-Ancona railway. 

In 1883 it became the terminus of the railway from Pescara, which in this way connected the Abruzzi to the capital (in 1888 a direct connection was made between Pescara-Sulmona-Rome, for which the section Pescara-Sulmona was dismembered by the railway, which became Terni-L'Aquila-Sulmona).).

From 1915, finally, Terni was connected to Umbertide with the Central Umbrian Railway.

The area of Terni was once inhabited by the Umbrians, who founded a town where the Rio Serra flows into the river Nera.

Interamna Nahars fu una città romana raggiungibile dalla via Flaminia nova: la rilevanza del centro abitato è evidenziata dagli importanti resti archeologici dell’anfiteatro e della cinta muraria; non mancano le testimonianze letterarie: tra  among them, is famous the one by Marcus Tullius Cicero, which tells us of a dispute that pitted the Ternani to the Reatini* because of the uncontrollable flow of the waters of the river Velino on the basin of Terni.

Christianity was established in Terni with the figure of the famous bishop St. Valentine, to whom a cathedral is dedicated. The basilica dates back to the seventeenth century but its origin is of early Christian foundation. 

Part of the Lombard duchy of Spoleto, in Late Middle Ages became a municipality, and then was included in the papal dominions until 1860.

The city is famous for the metallurgical industry, which made it the target of terrible bombing during the Second World War: nevertheless, it is still embellished with many ancient buildings.

Terni hosts a branch of the University of Perugia, for several degree courses, and the conservatory “Giulio Briccialdi”. 

The municipality includes areas of great naturalistic interest, such as the Nera River Park, and archaeological, as the excavations of the ancient city of "Carsulae".
