See a side of Tuscany that many visitors miss—and discover one origin of the region’s artistic heritage—when you book a small-group tour to the Carrara marble quarries. Within view of the Apuan Alps and home to famously pure marble (which was once used by sculptors the likes of Michelangelo), the quarries are still functional today. Go on a behind-the-scenes tour to learn how the stone is sourced. Complement your trip with a visit to the village of Colonnata, where you’ll taste its famed lardo: cured pork fat.
