  • The cost of the visit is to €10 per person, lasts 30/40 min. We lucked out because we had a private tour. The route begins on a small bus that takes you right into the heart of the mountain! Our guide was very friendly, well prepared and made the visit interesting, a sort of chat! The place is simply unique, if you're around I highly recommend this experience! Visit made by marmotour should!

  • The entrance looks like any mine. Then, once inside, we realize the extent of the deposit. Visit enlightened us on how to extract the blocks of marble. The site is active, miners there work! Our guide gave his explanations in Italian and English, which suited us perfectly. Expect warm clothes, the temperature does not exceed 15 ° C.

  • Arrived on Sapienza Fantiscritti, are offered to tourists two options: for those who don't feel like spending over two hours on a jeep road overlooking outdoor pits, to over 50 euros from some agencies, in a wooden hut next to the Gallery, the 10 euro a very interesting offers by Marmotour should visit inside a quarry lasting 45 minutes. You can get there by bus from the Agency after 600 meters inside a tunnel carved into the rock. The first impression is agreeable, especially if the day is hot, a pretty cool awaits inside with about 15 degrees. Bring walking boots or shoes, the marble powder soaked in water inside becomes slush. You will arrive in huge Caverns where there is marble. You will walk on a marble floor with marble walls and vaults out of stock for a Sheik. You will be explained the history of the cave, the extraction techniques of cutting and many other news from which one understands how to work in the quarry is still dangerous even though far less than once daily when accidents were fatal. A visit not to be missed.
