Cascata delle Marmore – the Marmore Waterfalls

The “Cascata delle Marmore” (Marmore waterfalls) are adjacent to our present nightstop at the Marmore camperstop. The waterfalls are the tallest/highest man made waterfalls in the world. Water falls from a height of around 165 metres. There are three falls in total, the longest being over eighty metres. Construction dates back to Roman times when the falls were constructed to divert stagnant water.

It is difficult to put a time limit on the visit, but we were clomping around for just under four hours, including an icecream at the top! During breezy weather, expect to get rather wet, so take a lightweight waterproof. Alternatively, “ponchos” are on sale for one euro near the entrance. Whilst mentioning “one euro”, it is worth noting that the toilets within the Cascata delle Marmore are all one euro per visit!

It is worth taking a couple of bottles of water or soft drinks with you. It is a long climb to the top! Noteworthy of a mention – there is a shuttle bus that will take you to the top so that you can walk down. Alternatively, walk up and take the shuttle bus back down!

There are some steep steps and inclines to reach the top.

Cascata delle Marmore – pricing

The present cost per person is ten euro, with some price concessions. However, the campsite sells tickets for six euro per person, so a saving of four euro per ticket. That saving was not enough to entice us to stay at the campsite! After 8:00pm, the price is six euro.
