The Marmore Falls is an artificial waterfall created by the ancient Romans and among the highest in Europe. The waterfall has an overall height of I'm 165 meters, divided into three jumps. The first jump, which is the highest one, measures 83 meters.

This very important Italian tourist destination it is located less than 10 km from Terni, in the Umbria region. The waterfall is formed by the Velino river which, near the hamlet of Marmore, flows into Lake Piediluco. Only part of the Velino river is diverted towards the waterfall.



Today this waterfall is used to produce electricity. This means that the cascade is not always active, in most of the time it assumes the size of a stream.

To see the waterfall in action it is necessary to go at specific times, which vary according to the season. When in operation, the effect is spectacular: an acoustic signal signals the opening of the regulation gates, and in a few seconds the stream becomes an overflowing river.

At night the Marmore waterfall is always illuminated from a very powerful latest generation LED system. This in addition to ensuring an excellent view even at night, creates a spectacular view of the waterfall.

Over the years the waterfall has carved out caves with stalactites and stalagmites in the travertine. Many of these caves can be visited and represent a still little known aspect of the Marmore waterfall, both from a tourist and speleological point of view.

Un trail along the falls allows the visitor to climb to the top of the falls and to admire this splendid natural spectacle at its best.
