Botanical Garden at Cascate del Varone

The climb up to the Upper Cave is not just a passageway between the two caves, but a path with numerous interesting features. 

115 steps will lead you to a path climbing up in a series of hairpin bends and surrounded by the flowers and plant beds of the Botanical Garden, recently built.

This walkway is also part of the work that was carried out to enable visitors to see the waterfall; in the past you had to make your way uphill through prickly thorns and scrubland. 

The area around the Varone waterfall, part of the Lower Sarca Valley, has its own microclimate that allows a luxuriant and rare vegetation to grow:

Plants typical of the Mediterranean area stand alongside trees which are generally found only up in the mountains

Palm trees, yuccas, loquats, cypresses, oleanders, hortensias and olive trees together with oaks, wild laurel, pines and larches: 

Looking around is like leafing through a book on botan

Cascate del Varone

Cave Varone and its waterfall are a rare geological phenomenon.


The falls has a height of almost 100 metres, and is sourced from the river Margnone, which runs beneath the valley of Ravizze and down to Lake Garda.

Starting at the bottom wiew point.

Making our way up to the top wiew point.

Its waters are fed by underground leakage from Lake Tenno into the mountain that then forms the waterfall. 

I could only use my mobile phone camera in there. It was like standing in the rain.

You can find more information about the geology and history of the waterfall here: Cascata del Varone
