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.

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

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.

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.

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.

A nice place to stop on a road trip between Rome and Florence. Facilities were decent, a few shops, and some food vendors besides a misty walk in front of the falls. We didn’t have a ton of time to do any hikes, and we had an elderly mom in our group, so maybe those are fun and would add to the experience. Parking can be difficult, as it can be a busy place.

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...

One of the best zone, during my journey in Umbria, was the "Marmore Falls" in Terni district. Just a Word: magnificent!!!

So, we see posters and flyers all over Umbria about the falls, even some that claim it's the 'largest falls in Europe'. We drive there, adding about 60 km onto our day trip, in the hope of spending some time with nature.

On arrival, it turns out that the falls are artificial, and only 'switched on' for 4 daylight hours each day, and they're otherwise totally dry, used for hydro-electricity. The receptionist told us that they would be switched on at 9pm, but by then it would be dark, and there's no lighting, so we wouldn't be able to see anything.
But, we could still pay the 8 EUR each to enter the park, and see the space where a waterfall would be. Great.

So, Europe's largest waterfalls are 'switched off', but we're still welcome to pay some money for nothing.
Really, the 'authorities' should highlight this on their promotional literature, and perhaps price entry according to what visitors are going to see. 8 EUR per person is a bit steep anyway - considering that elsewhere in Italy, and our home countries, we can see natural waterfalls for free.

A must see if your in the area. To avoid wasted visit make sure it's switched on! Fantastic view from the top. Then take a drive to Piediluco and get an ice cream or coffee next to the lake.
