Cascata del Varone

Just 3 km away from Riva del Garda

It is formed by Magnone stream - as it flows down the valley - as well as by underwater leaks from Lake Tenno. The waterfall features a drop of over 90 m and is one of the main tourist highlights in the area. Thomas Mann spent his holidays here at the beginning of the 20th century, and the place inspired him into writing "The Magic Mountain" in 1847.
The water drops straight into a 55 m rock funnel, and features a 73 m gorge carved by the water. The area has been fitted with staircases and balconies to enable visitors to admire the waterfall from a short distance. It also houses two caves. The former is located near the first walkway, while the latter - known as the upper cave, where the water flows into the mountain - can be reached after climbing 115 steps and crossing the botanic gardens. A trout farm is located upstream of the waterfall.
