Coreno Ausonio is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Frosinone in the Italian region Lazio, located about 120 km southeast of Rome and about 50 km southeast of Frosinone at the foot of Monte Maio, in the Monti Aurunci.

It includes an ancient carved grotto, the Grotta delle Fate ("Fairies' Grotto", 8th century BC), likely a tomb of one of the Osco-Sabelli an tribes that lived here at the time.
