Two Saturdays ago (3/16) I went to Terni with two other friends. Terni is a town about 1-1.5 hours south of Perugia by train. We got there no problem, but once we were there it took us awhile to find the right bus for our destination – Cascata delle Marmore or Maremore’s Falls! This is a man-made waterfall made by ancient Romans. Once we finally made it to the waterfall area (which they “turn on” for around 7 hours a day) it cost 8 euro to enter the park with the falls. From there we hiked all around – including a steep trail (aka stairs) to a beautiful view of the falls! This post is mostly pictures – I hope you enjoy them! I certainly did.
A view of the main waterfall as we entered the park.
A “proof I was there” sort of picture! Here you can also see a lower section of the main falls.
I like this view of some of the water going into a pool below.
…And more water!
Markers for 3 of the paths (there were 5 in total) – we did trails 1 and 2.
A view of the cliff across from the falls.
A bridge over not so troubled water.
A view of the distance!
There were several caves and overhangs along the trails.
At the end of this tunnel is “Lover’s Balcony” …it really didn’t look too romantic to any of us. Looked much more like a deluge!
We finally reached the top!
A final look of the main waterfall from our viewpoint at the top.
The mini house/hut structure on the upper right part is where we had our view.
