Three days by motorbike in Garfagnana to discover the marble of the Apuan Alps, with a Land Rover Defender tour at the marble quarries of Carrara

The expected arrival of this adventure is on Friday. Then we will spend all Saturday to visit and learn everything about the history of the white marble, going through the mountains from the inside and outside.

Saturday begins in the morning with a visit at an abandoned quarry in Garfagnana. Later, by crossing the Apuan Alps, we will reach Carrara and visit the active quarries with a Land Rover Defender. Lunch in the town of Colonnata with a tasting of the famous Lardo di Colonnata and, in the afternoon with our own motorbike or minibus we will go into the heart of the Fantiscritti mountain.
