The ugliest quarry in the world!! A big hole without machineries, without working people. A Disneyland where nothing is real and respectful of the hard work characterizing the marble's production during the centuries or the genius of the famous artists who have carved. Disappointing and sad.

This tour was unplanned by us......but what a time we had. To go into the caves was an amazing experience. Certainly one that should not be missed. Our young guide (3rd generation working in the mines) was so knowledgeable and informative, we just gained so much from the experience. This Tour is a must for anyone visiting this area.

We had a great guide, Valentina, who proudly told us of the marble quarry. She was funny and energetic and her English was wonderful. The history is quite interesting. We did the short tour, 40 min and then drove the scenic route to Colonnata and Carrara. If you are in the area, be sure to plan a visit with Marmotours. The on site museum was good too. Wild flowers were competing for our attention too.
The only issue we had was that there were no functioning bathrooms while we were in this scenic spot. They should be fixed by now!
