Hidden among the rolling hills of Umbria, the canyon of Fosso Campione better known as Forra di Prodo is a real all-natural amusement park. After putting on the neoprene wetsuits and all the equipment in the premises of the former elementary school we are ready to go! After just five minutes of walking you reach the beginning of the gorge, just below the beutiful castle. You start immediately with a nice dive and then find yourself descending a spectacular waterfall which, with its 16 meters, is also the highest. From here on it is a succession of jumps, dives, abseiling and natural pools to be overcome by swimming immersed in the crystal clear waters of the stream.
The incredible rock walls narrow as you proceed in the heart of the canyon until you can pass in one line, then again dives, slides and waterfalls ... in short, lots of fun.
Unlike all the other canyoniong tours, in Prodo you can use changing rooms and bathrooms and a hot shower at the end of the excursion, with a small contribution that must be left at the bar.
