Four-Wheel Drive Adventure to the Marble Quarries in Carrara

Michelangelo came here to personally choose the stone out of which he made immortal sculptures. And today, you are coming to Carrara. 

You will ride your Land Rover up the mountains, with stunning views all around. Then, your guide will take you to explore two quarries, where you will learn all about this valued stone. One is an open-air quarry; the other, an underground one. 

If the open-air quarry rings a bell — yes, you have seen something like it before. Quantum of Solace saw James Bond chased by villains right into one of Carrara’s quarries. But unlike him, you will leave peacefully, to discover neighbouring Colonnata and its delicious traditional delicacy. 

The perks of not being 007.
