Overview

Be amazed by this exciting tour to discover the Carrara Marble quarries.

We will set off in an elegant Mercedes V class Minivan towards the quarries of Carrara and crossing the road that winds like a snake up to the top of the mountain, we will cross the famous Ponti di Vara that together with the evocative tunnels carved into the rock constituted the 'former Ferrovia Marmifera.

We will head straight into the heart of the marble basins to visit the "Ravaccione Gallery" closed quarry, a guided tour of just under an hour in what is called the "Cathedral of Marble" where the extraction techniques, machinery and history of this precious material will be explained.
Here you can admire an imposing reproduction of Michelangelo's "CREATION OF ADAM" towers imposingly with its 160 SQM in the center of our gallery.
It was made by international artist Ozmo.

As an alternative to the closed quarry, you can decide to visit the active outdoor quarries with a 50-minute Jeep tour.

You will have the opportunity to discover this magical place where Michelangelo found the block that gave birth to the world-famous Pietà.
It will be possible to take a walk through the open-air "Marble Museum."
