This tour takes 40 minutes and absolutely worth it. We went throw a tunnel with a minibus into the middle of the mine and then we walked a little. Our guide was kind and funny and shared many historical details. The mine was monumental and...More

The best part about this tour is that you get to go inside the mountain and see how the marble is cut from the inside. Very helpful guides and everything is in English and Italian. 10 euros for about an hour is a great deal....More

Within the Fantscritti valley marble excavations there are the various surface quarries to see (both afar and close-up), but the Galleria Ravaccione are really something else, you haven't seen Carrara if you've not done this tour. The 'Marmo Girls' are all really friendly and so,...More

I do not think so, not by public transport, taxi probably is an option.

No need to book in advance. Tours can be booked at site. There may be a short waiting time for next available tour but operator will make several trips if the group is too large to fit into the available SUVs.
