Versilia | If you find the heat a bit too much on the beach of Versilia then we recommend a tour up to the Apuan Alps that tower up behind the coastal strip. On a clear day the more than 300 marble quarries of Carrara sparkle like snow in the sun. Michelangelo used this famous marble for the creation of his works of art. The best day for a visit is on a Sunday as there is less traffic along the tight roads and virtually no lorries which make the driving experience less challenging. Nature lovers who are seeking sport activities will find sign posted hiking and mountain bike tours as well as guided tours for mountaineers and climbers to different places.
