Transfer to Marmore Waterfalls

1. Transfer to Marmore Waterfalls

Transfer to Marmore Falls The Marmore Falls is one of the most famous in Italy and among the highest in Europe. It is located in the Valnerina, a short distance from Terni, inserted within the Nera River Regional Park. It is formed by the Velino river, which flows into the Nera river coming down from Lake Piediluco. If you are planning a visit to the area, it is an obligatory stop. To admire the falls of the waterfall it is possible to enter from two different points: the Lower Belvedere and the Upper Belvedere. The Upper Belvedere, which is located at the end of the homonymous village of Marmore on the road leading to Piediluco, offers a spectacular view of the first jump, while from the Lower Belvedere on the road leading to Valnerina it is possible to have a total overview of the waterfall and admire it in all its majesty. A panoramic path connects the two access points. Inside the Park it is also possible to follow six fascinating well-marked and signposted paths, which will allow you to admire the waterfalls from multiple perspectives and fully enjoy panoramas of evocative beauty. Return to Assisi comfortably with our Minivan. It is not a private tour, seats are open to sales until sold out.

Cascia, Norcia and Marmore Waterfalls Full-Day Tour

2. Cascia, Norcia and Marmore Waterfalls Full-Day Tour

Experience the beautiful landscape of Umbria on a full-day tour of the Marmore Waterfalls, the Sibillini Mountains, and Valnerina Valley. Taste the black truffle, hams, and cheeses of Umbria, all Protected Designation of Origin (DOC). Drive to the remote town of Cascia, home of the Augustinian nun Santa Rita. The former Roman town was destroyed in the 1st century B.C. by an earthquake. In medieval times it was sacked by the Byzantines and Lombards, and later occupied by papal troops to become a papal city. Visit the home of Santa Rita in the nearby hamlet of Roccaporena, perched at an altitude of 2,320 feet (700 meters). Stop for lunch in Norcia, birthplace of the founder of the Benedictine order, St. Benedict, and see the Gothic façade of the Basilica of Saint Benedict, with a rosette and crests of the 4 evangelists that dates to about 1200 A.D. Depart Norcia for the staggering Marmore Waterfalls. Among the highest in Europe, the waters cascade 540 feet (165 meters) down 3 terraces, the first (and highest) a drop of 272 feet (83 meters). The name derives from the calcium salts in the rocks that take on the appearance of marble. The manmade waterfalls were constructed by the Romans in 271 B.C. to drain the stagnant waters of the Velino River’s swamps, directing them to the natural leaps of Marmore and on into the Black River. Built over 2,000 years ago, this is the largest manmade waterfall in the world.
