    Doesn't matter how many times I go to Mamore it always gets to me! I love the sense of power in the water, and watching the channels around it fill up, and the spray as the falls build up. Just not so keen having walked all the way down, then have to go all the way back up again in 35 degrees, especially that last bit at the top where the steps are 2 feet high and my legs are like jelly! Ah but the gelato at the top is soooo worth it.

    The falls are manmade, created by the Romans in 271BC with the intention of draining Rieti's plane without flooding Terni. Terni's power-station complex is Italy's largest hydro-electric plant. The water can be diverted through turbines at the flick of a switch leaving just a trickle. Flow times are notoriously variable, afternoons, summer evenings and Sunday mornings are likeliest.

    Do they have a tap to turn on the falls as they vary in flow even when there seems to have been no rain ?
