Carrara marble quarries

Carrara marble quarries, one of our favorite day trips from Florence

Tour Code: E9

Visiting Carrara marble quarries on 4x4 jeep is an unforgettable experience. Book this enticing travel among our day trips proposals and discover the charm of an exclusive place a few kilometers far from Florence. In the northern part of Tuscany there’s a fascinating location, inaccessible for visitors without a guide: when joining our group tours you will get the chance to live a “totally white” day.
Follow our guides in this “cave tour”, in the province of Massa Carrara.

Marble quarries group tours, top quality cross country vehicles, driven by our expert staff, will take you to 900 metres above sea level where the sight is absolutely breathtaking. A detailed history of the ancient and modern excavation methods will enlighten you while you enjoy direct contact with the quarrymen who on workdays cut the marble and load the huge blocks onto trucks.

After that you will have a short break during which you can taste the unique ‘Lardo di Colonnata’. Next we reach an altitude of 1200 m.a.s.l. and a spectacular view, and then you will explore an underground quarry.

After Carrara our trip continues to Pisa, where you will be able to visit renowned squares and monuments, such as Piazza dei Miracoli with the Leaning Tower, the Cemetery and the Cathedral (admission to this one included).

Get the most of Tuscany and reach Lucca. It is a distinctive city in Renaissance style surrounded by walls with beautiful gates and ramparts. You will have some time to yourself to walk along the town walls and enjoy the view of this delightful city from above: the rooftops, alleys, towers, churches and palaces. It’s a stunning pleasure to visit Piazza Anfiteatro, the Guinigi Tower, St. Martin’s Cathedral and also to have a shopping afternoon in the typical antique shops that line the center.
