The Cascate del Varone (Varone Falls) is located in the town of Tenno in Trentino, 3 km from Riva del GARDA.
The falls has a height of almost 100 metres, and is sourced from the river Magnone, which runs beneath the valley of Ravizze and down to Lake Garda. Its waters are fed by underground leakage from Lake Tenno into the mountain that then forms the waterfall. The name Varone has its origin from the town of Varone a short distance away.
La Cascata del Varone was opened to the public on 20 June 1874. Patrons were the King of Saxony and Prince Nicholas of Montenegro, who were near Riva del Garda on holiday. Since then it has become a must-see for all tourists.
