  • Environment paradoxically almost Alpine. All white. Roads and precipices as you were walking down a mountain. Featured sunglasses and wear appropriate clothing. A wonder. Recommended to everyone!

  • The marble quarries of Carrara are truly a sight, that leaves you breathless. I would highly recommend to anyone to go out of town to visit them.

  • You can't go to Carrara and not to visit the cave. This is a unique way to access them is a bit bumpy and steep and unpaved in some places whereby the Council to rely on marble tour that provides a guide and, above all, a means to a modest sum (10 euro per person) with departure from piazzale Fantiscritti where you can arrive by car when you get to the cave you can enjoy a breathtaking view and if it's a nice day you can see the sea with Portovenere and the Islands palmaria and tino. The cave can be visited from the outside but there is a slot where you can get inside and you can see the working of the marmoset then you want to watch a show only go on the first Sunday in August when the lizzatura that is to reproduce the transport by the quarrymen's block of marble from the quarry to the square at the end of the event will be served a snack of lard bread tomato and wine
