The experience in a nutshell


    The activity

    The White Gold of Carrara is the most precious marble of the world, used since the Roman Empire for buildings and works of art throughout time. The outstanding scenery of the terraced quarries, where the marble shines with all its power, stretches from the mountains to the sandy coast of northern Tuscany, in a unique landscape.

    Reach the Carrara Marble Quarries and join Ivan for this exciting visit inspired by whiteness, which proceeds also during the tasting of the very special lard made in these mountains with the centenary technique of conservation in marble boxes.
