PLACES OF INTEREST

The cone shaped mountain Monte Caperno opposite of Piediluco is knicknamed Monte dell’Eco because of its famously clear echo which can be heard at the nearby picnic area

Every year the Festival of the Waters takes place in Piediluco to celebrate the summer solstice with a regatta of traditional boats, fireworks and other events.

Only a few kilometers from Piediluco you can find one of the most important tourist attractions; the Marmore Waterfall.

This unique sight has, over the years, provided the creative inspiration for writers, poets and painters. In three jumps the Velino fills an altitude of 165 meters and flows into the Nera river. It is an artificial waterfall, built by the ancient Romans to reclaim the plain of Rieti and is currently being kept open for tourism and for certain times of day.

Terni (12 km away) is the main city of this area and it is famous because of its Patron Saint, Saint Valentine, the protector of lovers
