Tirrenia - Carrara - Colonnata

We will be five Americans - one car - driving from Tirrenia to Carrara and then on to Colonnata and return.

We can leave early in the AM and will drive north on A12 - then over to Carrara - sight see a little at a quarry then drive on over to the village of Colonnata (to see the main square that is paved with marble ???).

Will anyone (who really knows this area) please advise me if this is possible as a day trip? Even though we can leave early in the AM we would need to be back in Tirrenia before dark. We will be doing this trip in mid - late May of 2011.

We will be driving fairly slow (sorry locals) so please figure that into your estimate. If you could give me the travel time estimate and the mileage estimate that would be wonderful.

Thank you !!!!

Yes, perfectly possible. Carrara is about 45 miles from Tirrenia, so you are looking at a drive of about an hour and a half, if you are going slowly, and Colonnata is just a few miles from Carrara.
