The Quarries of Carrara

Located on the peaks of the majestic Apuan Alps in the northwestern corner of Tuscany and overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, the world’s highest-quality marble has been extracted from the quarries of Carrara ever since ancient Roman times. This miraculous stone is still quarried today from the very heart of the mountains using tunnel quarries, or in the more traditional pit-quarry fashion, quarrying down along the slopes of the mountain. Buona visita!
