About
Carrara was born in the foothills of the Apuan Alps and it’s considered the world capital of marble at date. World famous Carrara marble is still extracted from the quarries of Apuan Alps, each year tens of millions of tons of marble and other hard stones are mined and processed. In a Land Rover Defender, along narrow and windy gravel roads, we will reach the highest point of the marble caves. This experience will allow you to see the modern machinery used for marble excavation and to understand the techniques used during the different steps. Then, heading to the second valley, we will stop on the way for a glass of refreshing Prosecco, before visiting the second cave underground. Once you will be accompanied back to the starting point, a full Tuscan lunch based on local specialties combined with Lardo di Colonnata tasting IGP, will be the best way to end up with this delightful day.
