Unearth the marble delights of Carrara, where the quarries enchanted even Michelangelo. The Italian artist visited these very same spaces personally. It is here that he selected the materials from which his famed sculptures would form.
The adventure begins at the Fantiscritti yard. Aboard your four-wheel cruiser, you embark up the steep quarry lanes. As you climb higher, the Tuscan terrains beyond become more stunning. A beguiling basin of the Apuan Alps, these landscapes harbour shapes that are rugged and unique. In the company of an expert guide, you make two stops.
The first is an open-air quarry that feels familiar. Perhaps you recognise it from a certain James Bond car chase? Explore an immersive underground quarry next, and discover the true value behind these precious stones. The journey continues at neighbouring Colonnata, an ancient village where traditional delicacies and authentic dining awaits.
