The Appeal of Massa Carrara Province

The Tuscany region of Italy is considered to be the place where the Italian Renaissance was born. This flowering of art and culture was an event in which the Tuscan province of Massa Carrara played a key role. It was here that the quarrying and dressing of the local white and bluish grey marble varieties was carried on, the product becoming increasingly in demand. This proud heritage is in evidence all over this picturesque province on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea in the form of beautiful marble architecture and statuary. From the lively coastal resorts to the Apuan Alps, Massa Carrara Province is an ideal holiday destination full of exciting things to do for those interested in art and culture. But it is also a perfect choice for those who like to combine relaxation and some sport and exercise. In the mountainous interior you can enjoy hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking. You can go enjoy skiing at the mountain resort of Passo Due Santi. On the coasts there is plenty of scope for water sports, sailing and fishing, or just taking it easy on the beach on your summer holidays.

Enjoy Self-Catering Holiday Rentals In Massa Carrera Province

This Tuscan province provides plenty of varied self-catering accommodation for visitors. There's a wide range of choice for holiday villas in the area. For example you can enjoy a luxurious detached converted former vicarage nestled in its own secluded gardens, or stay in a delightful villa with a private swimming pool in a picturesque location at the edge of a timelessly typical Tuscan village. Or you might prefer a traditional cottage in the midst of a charming medieval hamlet with views overlooking a valley clustered with olive groves, or an apartment in a 17th century palazzo with terracotta floors, bluestone portals and a stone staircase. Imagine spending your family holidays in a house built into a hillside and boasting an inglenook fireplace and a medieval galleria. You might wish to consider the appeal of a renovated barn enjoying all the modern conveniences, yet still retaining the ambience of the past.

Places to Visit in Massa Carrera Province

No visit to the province would be complete without visiting the two towns from which it derives its name. In Massa you can explore the narrow, winding streets of the medieval quarter, visit the marble quarries and related museum, and view the recently restored 15th century Malaspina Castle. Carrara is known as the City of Marble. Quarrying of this material has been carried on here since Roman times. The city has wonderful medieval and Renaissance architecture, a 12th century cathedral, a Ducal Palace, and a fine museum of fascinating statues and antiquities.
