It was a quiet but sunny late morning in May when we visited. The Basilica is tucked away in a side street in Terni. It is small in comparison to others - and there were not many visitors so that in itself was a bonus for us. We entered to violin music - there was a wedding there in the next hour - and enjoyed an uninterrupted and peaceful wander around the interior - go behind the altar where they have the real tomb of San Valentino - and then sat outside in the sunshine and watched the wedding party arrive with the rest of the locals - lovely, simple, atmospheric and somehow romantic because of the lack of any hype or touristy features.

The church is located a bit outside of the historic center, on the site of the ancient cemetery, where Saint Valentine was buried. The beloved saint was born and became a bishop in this lovely city in the 3rd century and it is quite normal that he is the patron saint of Terni (this is also the reason why the city is known as the “city of lovers”). The ancient basilica was completely reconstructed in the 17th century when the marble altar was constructed to contain the remains of the saint.

This church and Valentine is linked. HA! Was very interesting to visit. It was empty, quiet, peaceful. I like this when visiing churches. Something worth seeing if you have the time.

This church is only average in Italy but anywhere else it would be a must see. The Basilica is well marked in one area and then the signs disappear, Terni is a busy place with lots of stoplights so it took us two passes to actually find it. It is appropriately on via St Valentino! There is limited parking by the church and across the street. We were alone in the basilica so we could look everywhere...the altar has a metal figure in the form of San Valentino in a glass casket above which suspended from the ceiling is an ornate canopy with large glass beads. There are several massive paintings in niches dedicated to saints, the Madonna and Jesus, beautiful religious works of art. Lots of statues as well both inside and out...inside statues in color while outside the niches are filled with statues of saints in white. Go if you are in Terni, it a small gem but worthy of a visit. He is the man on February 14th and this is where it began.

The Basilica of at Valentine is located a bit off the city center, in a quiet neighborhood. Since St. Valentine become so famous, you can imagine the buses that stop at this church and the hundreds of tourists who visit each day. Inside the church we saw the body of the saint in a glass coffin. The church is bright, all the walls and the columns are painted in white. We liked this small Basilica a lot.

The basilica is beautiful, quiet and welcoming. It is a fitting memorial to the hero of love and family. Even though the Roman courts prohibited marriage in the church, Saint Valentine devoted his life to giving couples the right to marriage and the blessing of God on their lives. He was beheaded for his disobedience to a Decree of the Roman Empire.

We attended a wedding ceremony, and the atmosphere in the basilica was stunning. Very impressive architecture and was able to see the sunset into the basilica shinning the ornaments in the back. Just very impressed by every little details.
