Cascata delle Marmore, Marmore

4.4
#1 of 58 in Parks in Umbria
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.

  • The title speaks for itself. Too bad for the time of the visit, a little cold and covered, but still beautiful. I recommend to bring raincoats, rain covers for the backpack, hiking shoes so as not to muddy the shoes to get out. You can park (parking in front of the ticket office for a fee in the summer period) in two different places, the upper lookout and the lower lookout (first and second photos respectively). The first is where there is the real jump and you can admire the waterfalls a few meters, the second makes admire the waterfalls with all the vegetation around and in all their beauty. For those who do not like to walk I recommend to park at the lower lookout so as not to have to struggle in the ascent/descent. I preferred to park above and walk down through the Lover's Bridge where, after crossing a cave of thirty meters, we drenched well. I will definitely go back in the summer to raft. Spectacular

  • The waterfall of the Marmore is one of the most beautiful natural shows in Europe, certainly being of Terni are biased, but it is an objective thing, nothing to envy to the most famous, in Europe, Swiss waterfalls of Schaffausen, this because historically in past decades best-sold.

  • A fantastic walk in the paths that pass around above below and sometimes inside the waterfall. Landscape sometimes almost surreal. Lights, sounds emotions out of the ordinary. Go you can't miss and dedicate a whole day to him.

  • Impressive waterfalls but a bit too crowed for my taste: I've visited the waterfalls in august, so it's sort of a given. You have to buy a ticket for the visit, but there's also a little free walk around the park. The view is great though!
  • We visited during low season and site was closed. Even though, we had an amazing view and great experience. Just make sure the site is working before you go.
  • It's really beautiful place. It's not on a main road, but it's definitely worth to make a loop for visiting here. A breathtaking view. But pay attention that this waterfall can be switched off and on, so check the times you are planning to visit. You can go down to the foot of the waterfall, but it is not an easy going way, especially the way up ))), but there is a beautiful wild park down there.
  • Simply spectacular. Seeing these massive amounts of water rush down the slope is a magical sight, and the fact that it's all man-made makes it a tad more special. On another note: Expect getting really wet. Get a poncho.
  • Fantastic day out even on a hot day. But quite expensive. Check times when falls are at their maximum
