Last day of our trip ,we travelled from Orvieto to Rome and decided to make a left turn on A1 towards Tern in Umbria. After a short turn in town (very sleepy, all shops closed on Sunday) we drove to the cascades and we were very surprised to find an enchanting natural park , very well organized and with several walking options towards the cascades . In such hot weather , it was both pleasant and enjoyable to our family. We will recommend it to all friends traveling in the vicinity of Rome.

Won't say much about their history etc. as you can easily find these on the website. I visited the Cascate on my way back to Rome from Orvieto.

Although the waterfalls may be viewed at any time of the day, they do open them up (and therefore are more spectacular to watch) at certain times of the day. Presently that's 4pm. There are excellent viewing points and walking tracks.

It was a hot day the day we visited here but as soon as we started walking up the track to the top of the cascade, the cool spray of the water just delighted us. The view from below and above was just breathtaking. Mother nature is so beautiful.

How many 2300 year old engineering works are still fully operational?

This is simply amazing to see in the full flow state and then linger to see the thundering falls reduced to a trickle as the flow is diverted upstream.

According to one of the staff,the shuttle bus from lower to upper viewing areas is ONLY servicing on SUNDAYS which was a bit of a disappointment.

Get ALL your two way bus tickets before leaving town, as the are between hard and impossible to get at thr Falls area.

Manmade falls now opened twice a day. Starts slow and builds to a real stunner in about 15 minutes. Weekday visit meant a lot of school kids on field trip who couldn't care less about the falls, just the souvenirs. We viewed only from the bottom this time, last time we started at the top. There is also a hiking trail from the top to the bottom.
