We visited a marble shop in Carrara many years ago when we were stationed in Naples, Italy (1990). The shop had a small cafe attached to it - and I remember the owners had a pet monkey that was on a leash which they chained to one of the chairs. Does anyone know what shop this is? If it still exists? Thanks.
Hi, 3 of us will be in Pisa from Nov 24 to 28, 2010 and want to spend one day in Carrara and the quarry. What is the best way to get there? Are there tour guides for the quarry? We'll plan to visit the museum, but we really want to see the quarry operations if that's possible.
Thank you for your kind response.
How do I reach the Carrara Marble Quarries from Carrara or from Avenza Railway Station?
Can anyone recommend inexpensive accommodation in Carrara? Two people wish for short stay and longer stay accommodation to enjoy the city and look for house to buy.
