The Lover's Balcony

To reach it takes about 20 minutes of walk along the route n.1, but it is worth. “The lover’s balcony” is there, in front of the first drop of the Falls; on the contrary, “inside”, the strong water and for this reason you need to wear a raincoat to stop there (they sell in the ticket-office). It is a little terrace situated at the end of the tunnel (called with the same name: the tunnel of lovers), in the travertine rock, few centimeters from the Falls: if you stretch out the legs, you can touch the water of the Velino river.

Why “of the lovers”? because it is the favourite place of lovers and because the Falls is linked to themyth of St. Valentin, the first bishop of Terni (III century AD), patron of the city and of the lovers. The legend of the “bridal veil” tells that the saint to demonstrate the purity of the beautiful Nerina in doubt from the boyfriend, stroke the cliff with the crosier making flow the waters able to form a great bridal veil.
