The place that you want to park is a parking lay by on the SS 487 road about 1.2 km before Caramanico Terme,... More

We walked through this beautiful gorge with our 3 children, ages 10,7,3.5 (the small one was some of the time on a backpack). We parked our car at the parking bay on road ss487 before crossing the bridge and entering the town of Caramanico Terme. We then went down to the gorge. It is not a long walk (15 min.)... More

Easy to follow paths through beautiful gorges. I wish we brought our swim suits. Peaceful. We had the park to ourselves on a rainy day in early October.

One of the most spectacular sights in the Park - well worth the walk - which you can be shortened if need be. Also worth a visit to the Park Centre nearby.

Walk along the Orfento river, close to Caramanico Terme. The river has carved out a most wonderful steap valley. A well marked footpath guides you along the river, with crystal clear water. In summer there is shade and cooling.

This is the most spectacular gorge - highly recommended for a brilliant day walk from Caramanico. Can be full or half day walk depending on how far up the gorge you venture and how fast you walk...

Wow - what an experience. Caramanico Terme is a small but busy hilltop town, but it has a wonderful secret, the Valley of Orfento. We had to get permission to visit - actually a very easy procedure (just make sure you have proof of identity), and then we set off. The walks are very well signposted with suggested times to...
