Meet local artisans
Write a Review Share
With this experience we will reach the spectacular marble quarries aboard a Van Mercedes, enjoying a panorama that sweeps from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the majestic Apuan Alps, and we will discover the white gold of Carrara, the most precious marble in the world, used since Roman Empire for construction of buildings and works of art!

Arrived near the quarries, moving on a 4x4 car, you will visit the marble basins of Fantiscritti and Colonnata, along the route of the former marble railway, passing over the bridges of Vara and inside suggestive tunnels dug into the rock.
Continuing the journey we will arrive at the larderia, where we will be able to try the tasty Colonnata lard, a delicious typical product made right in these mountains with the centuries-old technique of conservation in marble containers.

After the tasting stage, returning you will pass through the ancient Via Carriona and the historic center of Carrara, with a visit to Piazza Alberica, an ancient square from the 1600s in the center of which stands the monument dedicated to Maria Beatrice d'Este Duchess of Massa Carrara.
