Waterfall
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.

  • Who goes around here should definitely get a good trip and discover the beauty of the waterfall of Marmore! I have been there yesterday after time and I never get tired of redoing paths (5 am) and climb the stairs to reach the upper belvedere. You sweat, you bathe, but so worth it because the scenery is something magical ... then for a time of refreshment at the highest point there is a also a really nice bar. It's quite an adventure not to be missed. Do not recommend it to families with toddlers little ones because they get tired easily due to high steps both uphill and downhill. I have witnessed scenes of children crying because they can't and parents who don't want it and continue to walk. It's a bit tiring climb to the peaks, but along the way there are several benches to stop. Bring water (unless you want to buy) and dressing comfy!! When you go to enjoy the fantastic and innovative cinema ticket in 6 d (ticket office is fattening). from fear!
