Cascata delle Marmore, Marmore

#1 of 39 in Parks in Umbria
Waterfall Nature / Park
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.
