When driving on the ss37 to Borgonuovo you cant miss Cascata dell’Acquafraggia. From far away you already can see this impressive waterfall. There are parking lots as well on the right side of the waterfall as on the left side of the waterfall. From the right side the view is a little bit better.

I visited Cascata dell’Acquafraggia years ago and to my surprise I discovered a rather unknown waterfall closeby: Cascata di Samolaco near the village of Samolaco.
