Yachting Land Adventure

Carrara Marble Jeep Tour

Enjoy a scenic drive and admire some picturesque villages belonging to the Ligurian and Tuscan coasts, before reaching the Apuane Mountains. During the climb to the quarry area, discover the marble extraction and treatment processes. Carrara marble is one of the most valuable marbles in the world. These quarries, already used in Roman times, provided marble for Roman houses and exported from the ancient Roman harbour of Luni. Famous artists personally came here to choose their marble for their future masterpieces, including Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, as well as Michelangelo Buonarotti. While visiting, see how the ¨Carrarini¨ (marble workers) work and how they live their daily lives. Afterwards enjoy a refreshment break with Lardo di Colonnata crouton, typical product belonging to the Carrara area, with IGP award for agricultural products of a unique and exclusive quality. Enjoy the Tuscan and Ligurian scenery during the return trip to Portovenere.
