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!

Really great climbing experience near Cinque Terre. The location was beautiful and our guide was fantastic. 1/2 of our group was experienced and 1/2 was not. Our guide made sure to find an area to accommodate everyone's abilities. Would highly recommend this experience!

I got to spend two amazing days climbing on two of the most beautiful climbing places you could think of. The guides were fantastic! Everything was well prepared, they took good care of everything and everyone, making sure we all felt safe and satisfied at all times. So if you want to start climbing as a beginner in one of the top 20 climbing spots of the world, or if you already have climbing experience and simply want to improve your technique or skills. Or if you’re already an experienced climber and you simply are looking for super professional climbing partners, this is what you have to go for! I feel like I made friends and will definitely come back next year to climb again with these lovely guys 🏼🏼🏼

Really great moments spent together with Cris (member of Roberto’s crew) who led us through a beautiful canyon close to Luca in the Garfagna region! It is really nice to visit a valley by going down a torrent and rappelling, jumping, tobogganing or swimming! It is also a very fresh activity to escape from the summer heat of Tuscany! Cris is very professional and very kind! I really recommend this activity to everyone! No need to be an expert to have fun down there!
