CARRARA MARBLE QUARRIES

Along with ancient villages, cities of art, paradise islands and seaside resorts, our coast has another glory to show to the rest of the world: the Carrara Marble quarries.

The dusty roads leading to the Carrara marble quarries slip into a serpentine path along the Apuane slopes, offering unique views and strong emotions. You proceed by driving slowly and cautious, crossing dark and improvised tunnels excavated in marble and semi-perpetual trails overlooking the crevices. A true “on the road” experience, full of suspense and adventure, where we recommend the utmost caution.

CINQUE TERRE

The Cinque Terre in Liguria is one of the most beautiful natural areas of the Mediterranean; characterized by its 18 km of rocky coastline, boasting bays, beaches and deep waters.
Recognized for its rich natural heritage the area is overlooked by a mountain range that runs parallel to the coast and which boasts hiking paths and trails with breathtaking views.
Over the centuries, terraces of vineyards and olive trees have been carefully built on this steep landscape, employing a particular agricultural technique that sought to take advantage of land which overlooks the sea along these steep slopes. These now-famous terraces make this one of the most distinctive and fascinating landscapes in Liguria.
