I remember ...

Although it is active only in the wettest periods of the year, the Casalaccio Fall is starting to be known by nature lovers who frequent Veio Park. The edge of the waterfall can be reached with a few minutes' easy walk. The most adventurous hikers reach the base of the waterfall by descending the very steep slope next to the stream with the aid of a rope, in a point with almost no walls. But if you put on a wetsuit and rappel the waterfall, you realize you are in a gorge with deep potholes, suggestive views and some other beautiful waterfalls, which make up an unusual and non-trivial canyoning route.
