History Sneak Peek

What is Carrara marble? Its a type of high-quality white or blue-grey marble, found in the foothills of the Apuan Alps and quarried in the city of Carrara in the Massa and Carrara provinces. To this day, many consider these mountains the capital of marble. Every year, the mines retrieve tens of millions of tons of marble and other unique hard stones.


The story behind this marvelous stone is that of hard work and craftsmanship that dates back to the ancient Rome. The masterful Michelangelo, as well as many other artists, created some of his best works out of this marble! You can find its traces in numerous landmarks around Tuscany.

So, are you ready to do something a bit different? Book your Carrara marble cave tour today and give an unexpected edge to your Tuscan holidays!

"Major disappointment"

They canceled our Sunday tour on Friday afternoon leaving us no time to make alternative arrangements. They offered a substitute tour focused on wine tasting. As I was traveling with my 8 and 9-year old kids, it wasn't a workable solution at all. This was a tour we were all looking forward to and it was a huge disappointment that it was canceled last minute. Will not do business with this company again.
