About
la piazza si trova nel centro storico di Carrara, è tra le più belle d'italia, nn è molto conosciuta a causa della poca frequenza da parte dei turisti che dalle cave si spostano direttamente altrove, ha un panorama mozzafiato e i palazzi sono un luccichio di colori, qua e la bar e localetti nonostante la piazza sia elegante e regale grazie all'imponente fontana dedicata a Beatrice con due grossi leoni da cui sgorga l'acqua proveniente da una sorgente delle li vicine alpi.

The heart of Carrara.
Aug 2018 • Couples
The Alberico Square is surrounded by buildings of illustrious and ancient noble families of Carrara.
The square, paved with squared marble pebbles to form ten large decorative squares, has a fountain in its center, with a marble tub and lion, surmounted by a large statue (executed in 1827 by the sculptor Carrarese Pietro Fontana) of the Duchess Maria Beatrice d'Este standing on a high pedestal decorated with bas-reliefs.
A real pity is that many shops in the surrounding streets have left the city and the area looks like a ghost town with many shops for sale or for rent.

A nice spot to rest and eat while walking around Carrara. Several nice cafes, and a store offering tours to marble quarries.

A nice square

A nice square in the middle of the small and peaceful town of Carrara. Of course the marble is the main object here, as everywhere in Carrara. A few restaurants and shops - we expected a bit more...

The best place in Italy. We stop for 15 min and spend 4 hours. It's interesting just go and look around there. Not much tourist and that's great!
