Central Italy, northeast of Rome, is the site of the world's tallest artificial waterfall, Cascata delle Marmore. Even more impressive than its 541 foot drop (more than 3x the height of Niagara Falls) is the fact that it was built by the Romans more than 2,250 years ago, in 271 BC. www.atlasobscura.com/places/cascata-delle-marmore-marmore-falls
