The Marmore Falls is a man-made waterfall created by the ancient Romans. Making it one of the tallest in Europe and the tallest man-made waterfall in the world. Of its 3 sections. Marmore Falls is located 7,5 km from Terni. Its source is a portion of the waters of the river Velino (the rest of the river flows into a hydroelectric power plant), after flowing through Piediluco lake near the community of Marmore. It pours into the valley below formed by the river Nera.
Most of the time, the water in the canals above the falls is diverted to a
hydroelectric power plant (Galleto), so the flow in the falls themselves is
reduced to the level of a creek. Piediluco Lake, above the falls, is used as a
reservoir for the power plant.
At Marmore Falls, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels,
farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for
rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
