Cascata delle Marmore, also known as the Marmore Falls, is a beautiful waterfall located in Umbria, central Italy. It is one of the tallest waterfalls in Europe, with a total height of 165 meters (541 feet). The waterfall is fed by the Velino River, which is a tributary of the Tiber River.

The Cascata delle Marmore is surrounded by lush greenery, and the area is a popular destination for hiking and nature walks. There are also several viewing platforms and trails that provide excellent views of the waterfall and the surrounding landscape. The waterfall is particularly spectacular during the spring and fall, when the water flow is at its strongest.

The Cascata delle Marmore was actually created by the ancient Romans, who built a canal to divert the Velino River to prevent flooding in the area. The waterfall was formed as a result of this canal, and it has been a popular tourist attraction since the 19th century. Today, the waterfall is part of a protected natural reserve, and efforts are being made to preserve its natural beauty and biodiversity.
