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.

  • Definitely, worth going to once in a lifetime, but only once. Nothing particularly memorable, the various routes can be done by anyone (whether disabled people), the tunnel of love allows (at the end of the same) to fully enjoy the magnificence of nature. You can organize a Sunday in the family for a picnic in the pine forest.

  • The first thing to say is: eye to opening of the water to see the falls in full extent. That being said, I visited with my girlfriend on Saturday 29 October from 11:30 at 16:30 (with opening water that were from 11 to 13 and from 15 to 18). We walked from the lower belvedere: wide free parking near the entrance ticket 10 euro (fair price for visiting the falls) and then off into the Park. Following the indications of the paths is almost impossible to get lost. Given that the falls were already in full flow, just 2 photos from Byron and then did for the trails 2 and 3; at 13, closed water we walked for 1 path to reach the upper belvedere (from this trail to the waterfall is not seen, so it is good to do it when the water is closed). Got to the top, we took the trail 5 which connects we stopped to eat a sandwich. At about 15 we returned to upper belvedere to see the opening of the water and the falls as they bought power. After more photos we have taken the path 1 to return to the lower belvedere. From there we took the trail 4 to admire the waterfall jumps 3 and make the last pictures of the day. Organizing time so you can admire the waterfalls in the prime of their scope and beauty. For a "trip out" different than usual are ideal.

  • Full immersion in the force of nature. The rumbling, vibration and water mist that envelops reminds you that little thing is the man in front of his mother nature. I recommend the nature trail beside the waterfall.

  • 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.
