Cascata delle Marmore, Marmore

(4.4/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Cascata delle Marmore a centerpiece of your Marmore vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Marmore travel itinerary planner.

  • I find it really absurd that in March 2017 the ticket office is no SOPs for credit and debit cards for the purchase of tickets and accept only cash. For the rest pleasant paths that take you inside the Park and the upper belvedere with an hour's walk. Bring impereiabile if you don't want to get wet completely.

  • As the higher waterfalls in Europe, Marmore is a must see place. It has mainly two entries, on top of the falls and at the bottom. You can then walk through several different trekking tracks to reach the other access. You can then get back on for or by the provided shuttle buses. Both entries feature good parkings. At the top entry there's a nice little park, with a restaurant and bar and a few gift shops. Entering here allows you to watch the waterfall from a side and the front, with a great view over the valley. At the bottom the viewer is probably better. Also here there's a big parking, a restaurant and bar and several gift shops.
  • Beautiful place, a place you definitely must visit. The biggest waterfall in Europe, surrounded by an amazing scenery. There is even a balcony under the waterfall where to can feel the cold splashes of water. You can even walk along a beautiful foot track from the top to the bottom of the waterfall.
  • Very nice park , we've been their while the waterfalls stream was low, pay attention and check first when they open the stream of the falls, should be a great expirience
  • Really worth a visit. Especially on a hot summers day as it's a few degrees cooler than closer to the coast
  • Beautiful falls with easy access, I suggest visiting from the northern entrance & parking lot (signs to Belvedere Inferiore) and enjoy the wide paved path to the overlook.
