Cascata delle Marmore, Marmore

4.3
#1 of 61 in Parks in Umbria
Cascata delle Marmore is one of the tallest waterfalls in Europe and the tallest manmade waterfall in the world. The ancient Romans created the waterfall, which stands at 165 m (541 ft). Hike to the top of the falls and gaze down at the massive flow of water and the Nera valley below. About halfway up, look for the tunnel that leads to an observatory called Lovers' Balcony. You're bound to get soaked in this romantic spot, so bring a rain jacket. You can choose from several hiking trails. You can refuel afterward from food vendors at the bottom of the falls or bring your own picnic. Guided tours are available.

  • That's for sure, Terni is not part of your itinerary. However, dedicate a half-day visit between two historic towns to make a green bath by stopping at this impressive waterfall that dates back to Roman times. Your teens will appreciate it. Your calves also!!! The management of the Park has just changed, so forget the previous criticism about the Organization and the reception. Now, in season, the operation is almost constant. Refer to the site cascatadellemarmore.info, which will allow you to have the right timing according to the dates. Have good shoes and do not hesitate to take the Mac at 1euro with your ticket at the entrance, you will need it. Namely, if you spend a night in the vicinity, the hotels and b&b of the corner will allow you to access half price (i.e. €5 per adult). For this stopover, Piediluco is a charming village on the edge of a beautiful Lake, about 3 km from the entrance to the high side of the falls... This entrance is a little less run and offers a nice size parking. Needless to say that your camera needs to be tropicalized, as you will evolve into a divinely refreshing water mist but... a little invasive! Good ride!

  • It is artificial though- they connected two rivers this way to bring in more water in the nearby lake. Still, 100+ meter of water- spectacular. Probably, better views from the lower observation deck. ...  more »
