Provincia di Massa e Carrara

Overview

Tuscan villages, among quarries and the Apennines

The province of Massa-Carrara is waiting to be discovered. Nestled between the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, the Apuan Alps and the Ligurian Sea, it offers nature, history, art, and fine food and wine.

Don’t miss Carrara, the world capital of marble. You can enter the living heart of the mountain and touch the raw material worked by masters like Michelangelo and Canova. Continuing along the Apuan Riviera, you can enjoy the unique spectacle of the sea just a stone’s throw from the mountains. We recommend visiting the centre of Marina di Massa, bursting with Art Nouveau villas.

North of the province lies Lunigiana, an ancient land, rich in history and traditions. The hilly landscape is dotted with castles and picturesque villages. A typical product of the area is Lardo di Colonnata PGI, a cured lard you can taste while strolling through the centre of towns like Pontremoli.
