5th opening of the Serio Falls – Valbondione
8 October 2023 the last opening of the Serio Falls, the tallest waterfall in Italy.
The last seasonal opening of the Serio Falls takes place on Sunday October 8th 2023, from 11:00 to 11:30 am.
In 30 minutes 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”.
