A really different and amazing day out is at Carrera, the home of marble. These beautiful marble mountains are visible from the beaches of Viareggio & Forti di Marmi.

Not only was Michelangelo’s ‘David’ carved from Carrera marble, but bathrooms throughout the world have been carved and constructed from it’s marble, which made me wonder, how is it possible for a small town to produce the huge mass required to fill so many grand hotel bathrooms, kitchen surface and floors?

For anyone, who would like a different holiday experience, then I thoroughly recommend the tour which can be followed by a visit (and dinner) to Pietrasanta, a beautiful town where David was carved or seafood dinner on the coast.
