Marmore Waterfalls

Repeatedly cited and praised by poets and artists as one of the most fascinating natural wonders of the world, the Marmore Waterfalls are undoubtedly a show of rare beauty, among the highest in Europe. Offers a unique spectacle: three successive jumps for a total of 165 meters in the midst of light, color, rumbles of water falling tumultuous and foaming between the green of the surrounding nature.

It is located 7.7 km from Terni, provincial capital of the Italian region of Umbria.Its source is a part of the river Velino (the rest of the river runs in a hydroelectric power plant), after crossing the Piediluco lake near the community of Marmore. Pours into the valley formed by the river Nera.
