The visit last about 40 minutes, a fantastic tour through the treasure of our city, our biggest resource: MARBLE.
The marbles cave "Galleria Ravaccione N.84"
The cave is situated in the heart of the marbles basins, between "Ravaccione", Michelangelos favourite plac for the high quality of the marble and "Fantiscritti" where the quarrying began at the roman age.
In 1963 Dell'Amico Carlo,using the tunnel built for the marmifera ( a train used to transport blocks of marble),managed thanks to his ability in quarrying,to develop in the heart of the mountain, huge rooms,calculated in 24000 cubic metres, hold by columns. The scenery you will see it will take your breath away.It is a place where you can lose proportions and the time stops.
The cave is still active. The extraction is carried out from Monday to Friday and the tour is open from March to October every day. Our guided tours with "MARMO TOUR" have allowed since 2003 to many people to admire the beauty ot this cave.
The tour starts with a short driving, about 3 minutes with our minibus,and,once inside it will proceed with a walking visit around the cave, agibile to everybody.
The tour is all in one level, we will walk on a floor entirely made of marble like the ceiling and the walls around...the view is comparable to some of our most beautiful cathedrals.
