Tour description

A unique experience to get in touch with the most famous marble of the world. You will be picked up by a 4×4 jeep in Carrara and driven up to the impressive marble quarries.

Up there your guide will explain how the extraction techniques have changed from the romans’ era to nowadays. There is also the possibility to visit the quarry from which Michelangelo chose the marble to sculpt his masterpieces.
