Trip of a Lifetime

  • Secluded in the Apuan Alps, the town of Carrara is the home of the world's largest marble quarry. People here have risked their lives for centuries, all the way back to the days of ancient Rome, removing the prized stone from the mountainside. Inside these blocks of cold marble, some of the greatest artists the world has ever seen found priceless works of art waiting to be revealed. Giotto, Donatello, Michelangelo and Bernini (just to name a few) all came to Carrara to find the material with which they created their masterpieces. Today the quarry is still in full operation, providing marble to inspire yet another generation of artists.
  • On this full-day excursion from Florence, you will have the opportunity to see and experience this hidden gem. You will leave Florence early, heading north into the mountains where you will drive along the roads that connect the three major marble valleys – Colonnato, Fantiscritti and Ravaccione. Eventually you will reach the Michelangelo quarry where your journey really begins. You'll see modern and ancient stone-cutting techniques and marvel at the sheer cliffs of pure white.
  • After your visit to the quarry, you'll head toward Colonnata for a light lunch of wine, cheese, and lardo the traditional food eaten by the masons here for centuries. Then, you have a choice to make: either visit a working marble studio and see where the stone is carved into magnificent works of art; or enjoy a guided visit to the historic center of Carrara, a medieval gem with a beautiful marble-clad cathedral.
  • Whether you love art, history, culture or all of the above, a visit to Carrara will provide you with a lasting memory, your own trip of a lifetime.
