Marble marvels in Massa and Carrara

The Massa-Carrara area in northern Tuscany is home to the Apuan Riviera, a twenty-kilometre stretch of coastline where white marble mountains melt into a turquoise sea in the blink of an eye. Originally in Emilia-Romagna and only becoming part of Tuscany in the census of 1881, this expanse of land is home to Massa and Carrara, two culture mines not to be missed.

Today, very much Tuscan in spirit and identity, the area is a welcome break from the well-trodden streets of Florence and Pisa. Leave no stone unturned and set aside three days for an immersion in this often-overlooked corner of Tuscany.
