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.

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...

Are you tired with crowds of Pisa or Florence? Visit Carrara. Pretty, colorful, authentic Tuscan town. Its heart is nice square called Piazza Alberica. I really liked it.

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.

Very typical Italian piazza with colourful classic buildings and a contemporary sculpture used by kids as a slide. Pleasant.

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!

A nice setting in an ancient city. A piazza in white marble with views of the white marble quarries just above.

Sober Renaissance square with white marble paving and facade decorations. At the center stands an iconic neoclassical statue of Beatrice, the last duchess of Massa and Carrara, portrayed here as a goddess of ancient Rome. Beyond this monument, with its fountain and lion statue, the square doesn't have much to offer, resulting in a very normal Renaissance square like 1000 others in Italy.
