We visited on November 22 and were told at the visitors' center that all tours were closed for the season. We decided to drive the "self-guided" tour, which allowed us to see the mining activity on the outside of the mountain. But when we arrived...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

There are two types of tours in the area. One is outside quarries and the other inside the mountain. We only had time for one and chose the inside one. It was truly amazing. Jessica was our guide and drove us deep into the mountain....More

Tour is very nice and interesting. There is a lot to see for low price. The cave is amazing. The mini-bus takes you inside the cave and there you can also see the real workers in cave. Staff are really kind and speak perfect english.

We are heading there this summer. Trying to figure out inside vs 4x4 tour. We are coming on the train. Anyone know if there is transportation from the train up to the inside tour?

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

Do you have to book Marmo Tour? Can you book it on website or by telephone?

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.
