We stopped at these waterfalls for lunch en route from Chiavenna to St Moritz. Parking is available close to the falls (ticket required, I think €1/hr) and the walk is relatively flat and easy. It took less than 10 mins to walk from the car...More

Nice place to spend an hour walking to the falls. Nice parking area with a small restaurant The falls are nice since you can get very close.

The waterfall itself can be seen even from the road but it is worth to park nearby and walk in the area. There are number of parking lots nearby... You can spent there from 1/2 hour to whole day, hiking, making a picnic, etc. There...More

A great waterfall, easy access with car - 3 minutes walk. The kids loved every second, stepping into the water and play around. Highly recommended if you are in this area.

Great side trip if you're in the area. You can hike right to the bottom of the falls, cross the creek on foot, and enjoy the sun and ping-pong at the bar right next to!

It is a beautiful place and the kids just loved playing in the ice cold water. There were many families having a picnic near the waterfall...a great family atmosphere. It is very close to Chiavenna, which is a very interesting town.

If driving, a road well worth travelling is from St. Moritz through Valchiavenna and the surrounding valley, down to Lake Como. It starts with bends and hairpin turns, but so picturesque, it’s hard to describe how the scenery changes from viewing lakes, rolling hills and...More

Si certo. davanti alla cascata c'è un bel parco dove potersi riposare dopo pranzo e un bel piatto di pizzoccheri. Buona Pasqua
