Carrara, Apuan Alps and marble quarries

Close to the sea, you ‘ll have breath taking views of the peaks that reach 2,000 meters

Erect between the Apennines and the sea, these impressive and unusual – because of their nature- mountains create a natural curve protecting the hills and plains below.

At their feet lies the city of Carrara with its beautiful old town and its economy based on the excavation and trade of the famous white marble.

The Apuan Alps hold endless marble veins, thermal and mineral water sources, streams, woods and numerous caves, including the Antro del Corchia, the largest and deepest in Europe with its 1210 mt. of depth.
