The millenary town.
narnia in italy

Superb town of almost 2.700 years even older than Rome.

From the 3rd century B.C to the 19th century A.D. (2.000 years), was known with the name of NARNIA. It was very important thanks to its strategic and dominating position close to Rome. 

In 1870, as a result of the end of the Papal States , the name “Narnia” was changed. Latin would never again be used as an official language so a result, the name became “Narni” to reflect the new vernacular slang of the time.
