Cascate del Serio 2018The last seasonal opening of the Serio Falls takes place on Sunday, October 14, 2018, from 11 until 11:30 am.

For five times a year, the Serio Falls, the tallest in Italy and the second tallest in Europe, open for 30 minutes. The falls (10,000 cubic metres of water) have a triple drop of 315 meters; the three main steps are, respectively, 166, 74 and 75 metres tall.

The 5 openings attract thousands of people every year, who climb from Valbondione, in the Province of Bergamo, all the way up to the waterfall. The best vantage points to admire the falls are upstream the Malasana district and along the military road that leads to the Curò lodge (1-hour walk).

16th-century scientist and writer Giovanni Maironi da Ponte called the Serio Falls “a place that could cure all life disappointments”.
