The Marmore Falls, celebrated during the centuries for their beauty, appear like a roaming water column distributed on three drops. Wrapping the flora in a cloud of white foam , cover a height of 165 metres. The scenery that opens to the visitors’ eyes is men-made since centuries, fwhen the Romans tried to canalize the waters of the Velino river to fall and into the Nera river.

The Marmore’s Falls were created by the ancient Romans and their total height of 165 m (541 feet), makes them one of the tallest in Europe and the tallest man-made waterfall in the world.

They are located 18 km from Torre Palombara.

This amazing site and the numerous path along the falls make it a great day excursion.
