The Carrara marble is a type of white marble of high quality, popular for use in sculpture and building decor, that has been quarried in the city of Carrara since the time of Ancient Rome.
These quarries have produced more marble than any other place on earth.
The greatest sculptors of the Renaissance, from Donatello to Michelangelo, went to Carrara to personally choose the best blocks of marble for their masterpieces: David, Pieta, The Bacchus, St. George, and many others. Today, we can visit the area, rich in history and traditions, enter in a marble quarry, visit Colonnata and Carrara or visit a modern workshop where sculptors still create their pieces sold worldwide.
For the lunch we recommend the local seafood in Forte dei Marmi which is a coastal town famous for its luxury hotels and nightlife in summer, in addition to the most famous designers boutiques.
After lunch you will have time to shop in town, relax on the beach or have a walk.
