Discover Carrara, the City of marble

Carrara, the City of marble and UNESCO Creative City. Many first-time visitors assume the white mountain peaks forming Carrara’s backdrop are capped with snow. In fact, the view provides a breathtaking illusion – the lunar white is 2000 hectares of marble gouged out of the foothills of the Apuane Alps in vast quarries, 5km out of town, that have been worked since Roman times.

Carrara is one of the most underrated destinations in Tuscany although it deserves the same popularity as its precious marble. If you love marble, you will love this City, its art, its history, its style: come and visit the place where the marble magic happens.
