Useful tips

What you are about to see once you are past the entrance to the Varone waterfall is a damp, dripping and mysteriously fascinating scene, part horror, part fantasy. And yet all you need to set out on your journey up and down the winding gorge down which the waterfall plunges, are three simple items of clothing: A good pair of comfortable shoes (high heels are not a good idea as the ground is slippery), a jumper (the temperature drops considerably) and a waterproof coat to avoid getting soaked by the dripping water.

The souvenir shop near the ticket office sells cellophane waterproofs if you have not come prepared.

Lenght and access

There is no time limit for your visit, minimum visiting recommended time is 20 mins.

The way is completely paved. The track up to the upper cave is made of ca.70 long steps (one step, two meters tread).

Dogs: allowed, kept on a lead.

Wheelchairs: we are not equipped for wheelchairs visits.
