Marmore falls #umbria #discoverumbria #visitumbria #umbriatravel

he Marmore Falls are the highest man-made waterfalls in Europe (165m) and as such provide a spectacular alternative to castles and vineyards.

The Romans create the Falls in 290 BC when they dug a canal to drain the wetlands and diverted the water over a natural cliff.

The water flow is now controlled by a hydroelectric dam and the water is released between 11am and 1pm daily for the benefit of the tourists.

Watching the waterfall transition from a mere trickle to a raging torrent is the most amazing sight! To get the full experience wait at the bottom observation area until the flow starts then hike up the trail to get a closer look at each Fall.

CDP - Città della Pieve is one of our Mediaval villages recommended for visit for its proximity to il Fontanaro (only 13 km). From the city you can see both Lake Trasimeno and Lake of Chiusi.
It was the town of Pietro Vannucci, better known by the name of il Perugino.

The summer months are the busiest times to travel to Italy, but for good reason. There are many activities happening all over the country from the country to city. One issue you may find is the unbearable heat and copious amounts of people in the city. So, the best way to combat those issues are taking your travels to the hillside towns and countryside. Stay with the locals during all the many music and food festivals occurring during the month of July!
