The "Marmore Waterfalls": one of the tallest in Europe, 165 meters high and 5 easy trails to visit them at their best. It's a man-made waterfall, created by the ancient Romans who diverted the Velino river towards the Nera river, you can find more details on Wikipedia. All the information about opening time, tickets and guided tours on the official web site http://www.marmorefalls.it/en. Here we'll just give you some advice to enjoy your visit according to our experience.
- : its a , starting from the bottom to reach the top of the falls. The difference in height is fair, you'll find a tunnel at midway that allow people to go closer to the water. Once you get you'll see the water jumping; there is also a bus to bring people from the bottom to the top and viceversa
- : two very short trails, both close to on of the waterfalls.
- : the best place for your wide shots, the only point allowing you to see all the three water jumps. We loose time at the trail 5 so we found the water

Advice: bring a k-way with you; check the opening/closing time of the water in order to plan your visit. On saturday and sunday morning, you have just 3 hours to visit the waterfalls (unless you stay also in the afternoon), we suggest you to go as follow:
- Get there 20 minutes before water opening
- Watch the opening from the trail n° 4
- Walk on the trails 2-3 at the bottom of the waterfalls
- Rise to the top walking on the trail n° 1
- Choose wether to walk on the trail n° 5 (in my view, it does not worth it)
- Go back to the bottom (by walk or by bus)
