The Diborrato Waterfall in the Heart of Tuscany Is One of Italy's Most Underrated Waterfalls

by Matador Creators Jan 24, 2023

In the green hills of Tuscany lies the Diborrato Waterfall, a little-known natural wonder that’s one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Italy, and an ideal spot for travelers looking to visit a sight that isn’t quite as touristy as The Colosseum. The waterfall is located near the town of Lucignano, about an hour’s drive from Florence, which makes it easily accessible for those who are already visiting other popular Tuscan towns like San Gimignano or Siena. The waterfall itself is tucked away in a small valley deep within a nature reserve, so it doesn’t attract too much attention from tourists.

Diborrato Waterfall is made up of two cascades—the upper cascade and the lower cascade. The upper cascade is about 100 feet high and consists of several drops that eventually flow into a pool at the bottom. The lower cascade is even more impressive, with over 196 feet of falls that plunge directly into a deep ravine below. The combination of these two cascades creates an incredible sight that is truly unforgettable. The area around the waterfall also presents some amazing views for visitors to enjoy.

Once you arrive at Diborrato Waterfall, there are plenty of activities to enjoy. There are plenty of trails nearby for hikers and mountain bikers alike, and you can also take a boat ride on the nearby lake for an even better view of the area’s natural beauty. Visitors can take in the breathtaking views from either side of the waterfall or get up close and personal with its powerful plunge pool. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even take a dip in its icy waters. For those who prefer a more leisurely experience, there are plenty of trails both near and around the falls that offer stunning views without having to leave your comfort zone too much. Just remember that these trails can get slippery after rain so it’s best to come prepared with proper footwear and clothing.

Visitors should always exercise caution when visiting any natural wonder like Diborrato Waterfall. It’s important to stay on designated paths as there have been reports of flash flooding along some routes during heavy rains or snowmelt periods (usually occurring between October and May). In addition, some areas may become unstable due to erosion so it is important to stay alert and aware of your surroundings at all times while exploring near the waterfall. It is also recommended that visitors bring plenty of food and water for their journey as there are no restaurants or shops nearby.
