These spectacular waterfalls are located close to Terni in Southern Umbria. They are 165 metres in height and are the tallest man-made waterfalls in the world. The Cascata delle Marmore were created by the Romans when they diverted the Velino river over cliff into the River Nera. Worth the drive but please check the times that they are running as the falls are regulated and run intermittently.

The caves are open all year round and a visit can last approx. one hour. The caves consist of an immense cavern and a series of large chambers, tunnels, wells and labyrinths that snake for 13 km. Stalactites formed over thousands of years have entwined themselves to create stunning reflections on the surface of the water and take on bizarre shapes.
