to expensive
Sep 2021
Too expensive for a waterfall which is even artificialy made. Plus you have to pay the nearby parking.The better and easier walk is from the parking at Marmore. There are a lot of people on the observing spot when the water starts to fall - check out the scedule! Waterfall is small at the beginning and after 10 minutis much more impressive. But just another waterfall with too many people around

A must visit if you are in Umbria
Aug 2021
This has probably been one of the more exciting visits I have done in a long time. Try to avoid peak season because you will be overrun by holiday makers (like yourself) and may miss the charm and beauty of the falls. To be man made the falls are very impressive and the water is so forceful but full of beauty. In the heat of summer the walk through stages 2 and 3 are a welcome shower :) unless you have electronic equipment don't bother with a rain pancho...go and get wet!!! its fun!!!

Could be cheaper for that kind of place
Jul 2020
It cost 10 euros which is too expensive for a place like this. It is a place overpriced only because it is the only place in Terni to do.
I prefered to bring friends in others places like Spoleto/Assisi/Narni than this one.
It is not a must to do around...

Little overrated but worth seeing if you are in the area and out of season
Sep 2020
Nice to see if you in the area but nothing really stunning. Lots of people (even in September), mostly wearing masks so you don't not feel uncomfortable during the covid times. We parked car at the top, took a walk down the hill and came back by bus. The best views are at the bottom, for me it doesn't make sense to do the whole path especially while there are so many people around and the paths are narrow. Not wanting to go back through the crowd we opted for the bus (2 euros) and it wasn't easy - first you have to figure out that you have to buy a ticket at the ticket office then go to buy the ticket a the same ticket office as the entrance tickets (for us it was 15 mins wait), then you have to go to the bus stop (5 mins walk) wait for the bus - there's only 1 bus every 30 mins and one bus takes about 30-40 people per course so it is not uncommon to wait 1 or more hours for the ride and many don't respect the queue.

STAY AT HOME

During Covid-time

No one controles if people waer a mask, eating aerea open, people not waering a mask. (you pass people at 10cm), after complaining only blabla answer. Too many people, you can‘t enjoy at all.

Too dangerous to go there. Stay at home or spend the money on a pizza. Trust me.

Disappointing and Highly Overrated!
Jun 2020
First, let me state that if you are interested in Roman feats of wonder, then by all means visit the Falls. But, if you are seeking a beautiful park and falls area, skip this tourist trap.

There are two parts to the Falls Preserve. The Superiore, or top, is where you can walk down a narrow pathway with stairs to a viewpoint, albeit small area, for a photo. You can't really see much else because of the spray mist. I would not recommend doing this if COVID is over and there are a lot of tourists there. I can't even imagine how long it would take just to traverse this small path for a photo op with alot of people there. As it is now, you can walk down a steep path/stairs to the bottom area, but because of COVID, it is now one way. Therefore, you must either be picked up or walk quite a ways up a different steep trail to get back to the top.

I drove to the Inferiore area {it's part of the same ticket}. It is challenging to find, because once you leave Marmore there are no signs. Follow your GPS and you will eventually get there, down a steep winding road. I kept thinking I missed it because you feel like you are driving away from the Falls.

The Inferiore area offered a nice view looking up at the Falls, and a pretty, forested backdrop. There are some trails that go back into the woods but I didn't venture back there. The main area is again, very touristy and designed to accommodate a lot of cars and buses, so I can only imagine what this would be like sans Covid.

And for what? As far as waterfalls go, it's ok but not amazing by any means. And, as someone else pointed out, if you go between 1-4pm, it will only be a trickle. To be fair, it takes a while for it to drop down, I'd say by 1:45 it was significantly lower with no spray and some dry rocks exposed.

So, considering it took me almost two hours to get there from Orvieto, with construction delays, and then almost two hours back.......the drive was beautiful, but the destination was a disappointment. Spend your time going somewhere else in the area, and save your Falls experience for Niagra or similar.

Opening times didn't match public transport
Dec 2019 • Family
The bus trip was very scenic. We arrived in the tiny town and checked the return bus timetable. The falls are a short walk from bus stop. When we arrived, we learnt that the opening hours of falls meant we would not be able to catch a bus back so we did not see the falls. The people in the cafe and shop were very helpful and friendly. Make sure you check the water release times, not just opening hours. Double check websites for times as the site we looked at, did not match the actual times.

The waterfall is a place of stunning beauty, and the scenario outlines it beautifully. Ticket office and parking could use a little more re-engineering, but overall the experience is worth the hassle.

all or nothing

We arrived at the Cascata at 10 to 4 in the afternoon. I went to the ticket office and they told methe waterfall was to be turned off at 16h00..... I must have looked baffled becuse they then started to explain that the waterfall is fed by a river in which there is a dam to create a lake at the top, which is used for hydropower. The fall is turned on and off and certain times. She also told me it would take about 10 mins to get to the fall, so it would be dead by the time I got there. I could have bought the ticked to see the park but the waterfall was my reason to go there in the first place, I just viewed it in the distance, walked as close as we could get (to the ticket checkpoint) and that was it. We saw he fall, it was nice, but after seeing Niagara falls a few years ago, I wasn't impressed,

Before you go, check and make sure that the falls are turned on at the mie of your visit. This can save you a disappointing experience. .

For nature lovers
Sep 2019
If you love to hike or just want to go on a walk in nature you will love the Marmore. Plenty of challenging hikes and for the families a much easier access thru a stairs path. Gorgeous.
