    I've been here Wednesday post August with my family. Unlike last year where there was only one entrance ticket office, with tails "curves", because of which we could not visit the attraction and returned back, this year there are two ticket offices we checked right away. Of the three possible routes, the longest we have among other things made us, is quite challenging and advise you to do so if you are a little train. The waterfalls that come together from time to time along the way as well as various water views are spectacular. The Park is well maintained with dining and toilet. Highly recommended!

    We decided to visit the Park during the holidays in August. Just before the entrance of the ancient village of Molina is a large free car park to leave the car. The village is very nice, quiet and clean. Cross it again. At the end there is the park entrance; I found just the ticket to €6.00. In the park there are three routes divided by level of difficulty. It's all well sign posted and you can't go wrong (though the entrance is given a map). The trails are clean and tidy, varied vegetation (I liked the signs with descriptions of the trees), basically you walk in dim light and, in the hot weather, it's ideal. Obviously beautiful waterfalls; too bad the drought, some were simple small rivulets. But then this summer is so. The caves were still striking. We followed the black course. He suddenly quite demanding, but panoramic spot worth the hassle. Very pretty even swing that rocks on one of the waterfalls. Cured picnic areas, refreshment bar and bathrooms (cleaned, although the high influx of people). It would be nice to get back and see rivers and waterfalls to their maximum.

    We decided to spend August with friends, we headed to the falls without knowing what we would have expected. We arrived at the parking lot of the Park at 9.00 and after making a stop at the bar we headed to the park entrance. From the parking lot at the entrance it takes about 10 minutes walk downhill (climb back up). Once inside the park there are 3 possibilities of paths ... Green (easy), red (medium) 1 hour 30 min black (challenging) 2 hours we decided on the black course despite none of us are used to doing walks of "mountain" and I have to say however if done with the right calmness is feasible even with kids (maybe it takes 2.5/3 hours). The course overall is very nice, though on days like today (August 15) the water in the waterfalls was truly very little ... Following the black course will get you to the panoramic terrace and I must say definitely worth it!! For someone who goes around with children is equally beautiful swing! At the beginning/end of the park there is a bar and toilets (which are no longer found on the way to the Park). There are also lots of pic pic. Highly recommended to do something different from the usual

Where to stay in Verona

The historical center of Verona is packed with famous luxury hotels, which offer all the modern conveniences but also tend to be very expensive and require booking months in advance. If you're a spontaneous traveler visiting on a budget and staying in the central area is not one of your musts, consider checking into a small B&B or family-operated farm just outside the city. Verona's picturesque countryside offers less expensive but comfortable lodgings with good food and friendly hosts, all within a short drive from the bustling city center.
