And after having told
you the legend of Nera and Velino (here) and revealed at the end of the post our trip to Marmore Waterfalls, today I’ll tell you how it was and I’ll show you some pictures of the place and Sissi’s outfit
Marmore Waterfalls, with its jump of 165 meters, is the highest in Europe. It is actually an artificial jump, already built in the third century BC by the Romans to drain the land above of the waterfall and then modified over the centuries and further exploited by the early nineteenth century with the hydroelectric plant. For this reason, the water flow undergoes changes during the day and there are times for the “release the waters“, which is worth a look if you are visiting the area.
The whole area is very well organized, with paths, signs, bars and restaurants, a small market, souvenir shops, parking, toilettes.
It‘s really a convenient and practical place to visit with the children, even very small.
You can also make a nice picnic because there are plenty of benches and tables spread a bit all over the area. We began our visit to the Belvedere Inferiore (Lower), the point where you can appreciate the waterfall “from below”. A bit hesitant we decided to take the path n.1, indicated moderately difficult with time 45‘ to rise to 25 to descend: we have walked only up to the “Lovers’ Balcony” (about half the path) and it is really worth. Sissi (almost 30 months) has always walked alone (with some help on the stairs) and we have not been very slow.
We also route the path n.2, which runs along a loop in the area of the second jump. A path simple, fast, all-in-plain.
For dinner we moved to the Belvedere Superiore (Upper), to appreciate the waterfall from above by the porch of the “Specola” ( Observatory).
The outfit for Sissi is simple, practical and comfortable.
Since we are still in the process of nappies-goodbye, I also brought in my bag many other shorts and panties (for mishaps) and multi-use pads (always useful). To visit the falls raincoat can not miss: penguins from Mini Rodini have accompanied us the whole way along the paths and I must say they fulfilled their task very well! Sissi dry! And so happy!
