Guide to Versilia's tourist tours

The Mountains of Versilia...
Tranquillity and relax!

In Versilia you will find a surprisingly wide variety of scenery: only a short distance from the sea are the Apuan Mountains with their lush green chestnut groves, rugged summits and gentle hills dotted with olive groves - a startling contrast with the wide coastal plain washed by the blue sea.

A landscape teeming with life - though secluded and remote - with a network of hiking trails among shady woods, enchanting valleys and meadows, as well as picturesque hamlets, ancient watermills and majestic marble mountains. You will discover a truly unspoilt natural and human environment retaining a remarkable historic heritage.

Le cave di marmo presenti sulle alpi apuane

Cervaiole -Piastrone - Tendone: It is possible to reach these quarries from the road to Castelnuovo Garfagnana before reaching the Cipollaio tunnel. Since 1800 the white arabesque marble is extracted "open-air" or cut horizontally into the flank of the mountain.

Gobbie and Castelnovese canals: Reachable from the Arni hospital at the hamlet Castagnina. Here the white arabesque marble is exploited by excavating ditches.

Collettino - Bozzo - Faniello - Tombaccio: Reachable from dust tracks after passing Arni. In addition to the white arabesque, also other types marble like the "fantastico" and the "breccia" are extracted here.

Trambiserra - La Mossa - Tacca Bianca: Reachable from Seravezza to Riomagno-Malbacco along the river Serra. This is where the white statuary marble used by Michelangelo is found. He was actually the one who opened the Tacca Bianca quarry.

Borra Larga: This is the most interesting and suggestive quarry as the white arabesque marble is extracted in tunnels underground. It is reachable from Levigliani through dust tracks.

Tavolini: It is located on the summit of Mount Corchia and is reachable through a dust track from the Croce Pass, at the end of the so-called Retro Corchia path (back wall of Corchia), passed the hamlet of Terrinca.
