In the northern Tuscany, near the sea lay the Apuan Alps, an unexpected beauty which offers a lot of fascinating excursions with breathtaking views.
The Apuan Alps are well known all over the world for the high quality of white Carrara marble. The extraction of the marble is done only in a restricted area while a picturesque regional nature park occupies a huge part of the massive mountains . The highest peak of the Monte Pisano is nearly 2000 mt. high. Being by the sea, the Apuan Alps offer unique excursions and on a clear day you may be able to see the islands of Elba and Corsica.
