Cascata delle Marmore, Marmore

(4.4/5 based on 3,400+ 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.

  • The waterfall sung by Byron and Goethe, and illustrated by numerous artists of the 19th century. One of the points reported and to visit on the grand tour. Currently the paths for the visit are different and very beautiful. From the front, from below, from above: when the waterfall is open (attention to the schedules to be consulted on the site) the spectacle of white water strength is unparalleled. As a child I told that my wedding veil would be nice and long as the spray of the waterfall!

  • Back from Assisi we decided it would be interesting to see the waterfalls ... and thank goodness we stayed! The opportunity and the time "lucky" allowed us to see a show that nature offers (obviously was paid a ticket) but it was worth it ... I suggest to pay attention to the opening and closing times of the falls and recommend a kway. To show to your children ... wonderful!

  • 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.
