  • Nice location, but definitely world famous for the lard that is prepared in the marble extracted from quarries

  • The visit to the cave is not complete unless you visit Colonnata, ancient village at the end of the road that leads to the marble quarries. We can find in a restaurant which serves typical local products subject to booking the famous lardo di colonnata, aged as it was a time in marble. From the piazzetta go up a stairway through the homes of locals come to a church dedicated to the quarrymen, inhabitant of these areas and employees of the cave forever. The landscape is needless to say it's great.

  • The town was cool and refreshing, as it is on top of a mountain. And yes, "lardo" is lard. But it is cured for 6 mo. with spices and if you can get past the artery choker part, it was quite good!
