The marble city
Carrara, located in the Apuan Riviera in Northern Tuscany, has always been known as the marble city.
The city merges into the Alps in a succession of diverse and fascinating landscapes, dominated by white mountain tips and marble extracted from quarries, which has been at the foundations of the town’s history and fortune.
A trip to Carrara is simply incomplete without visiting the Apuan Alps Regional Park, whose peaks surround the town. This unique mountain range extends for 60 km along Versilia, Lunigiana and Garfagnana, known for the incredible panoramas that range from the white peaks to the Tyrrhenian coast.
Don't miss a visit to Marina di Carrara, which, thanks to its “club nautico”, has been a hotbed of champions who have distinguished themselves in regattas all over the world. Piazza Menconi's street furniture, completely paved in marble with a splendid fountain, is also incredibly beautiful.
