This ride into the quarries where marble for Michangelo’s David statue originated is like a trip back in time. You ride 3,000 feet into the Apuan alps in a 4x4, bumpy to be sure, and the road is twisty and on the edge of the mountains in some spots. Definitely not for the faint hearted, but the skill of the driver was very reassuring! Awesome to see these mountains of marble, and an education to be sure. Highly recommend!

Nice and unique place in the world, but would plan a short visit. Guided tours are Oké but limited explanation.

Amazing to see the origins of the marble, and a bit of adventure in the jeeps. The best group tour I've done.

Úžasný zážitek, něco takového jsem ještě neviděla. Jen bych ráda upozornila, buďte opatrní na své brýle a objektivy. Brýle je nutné dokonale opláchnout, rozhodně nesahat na skla, neutírat, mramorový prach je poškodí

Amazing experience. But be careful about your glasses, it is necessary to thoroughly rinse them with a stream of water, do not turn
