Description

We invite you to join us for a hiking day in the Apuan Alps and discover the Vie di Lizza. These were the paths through which huge marble blocks were moved downhill in ancient times.

Although they were no longer used for more tan 50 years, today they are fantastic hiking routes, in a unique environment. Besides, they are a monument to the fatigue and sweat of men, as well as the origin of bold masterpieces.

The Apuan Alps lie in northern Tuscany, in Italy. They offer an incredible alpine environment and breathtaking views from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west.

Some of the world’s highest quality marble is found in the area. To the north of the range, we find the famous marble querries of Carrara and Massa. Marble and Carrara have become synonyms all over the world.

We will spend an amazing day hiking on a beautiful environment full of history! Also, please note you need good aerobic training to join this hike. The level ranges from medium to difficult, depending on the path.

We also offer several other hiking options in the Apuan Alps. You can check them out!
