From marble mountains to sandy beaches, medieval squares to nature reserves, Massa-Carrara has an extraordinary diversity of habitats and attractions.

With wonderful architecture and plenty of outdoor sports and activities, Massa-Carrara is a popular, family-friendly holiday destination.

Massa-Carrara holiday farmhouses are also available, with spacious grounds, private swimming pools and expansive outdoor terraces. All the properties offer premier comforts with tastefully furnished living rooms and bedrooms.

Things to do

-Historic monuments: The winding, cobblestone streets of Massa’s medieval quarter are a big draw. Two of the town's must-see sights are the cathedral with its history of over 800 years, and the 16th-century Palazzo Ducale of Cybo Malaspina. This was once the residence of Napoleon's sister, Élisa. Carrara also has numerous sites of historic interest with a Romanesque-Gothic cathedral and a 16th-century Ducal Palace.

-Natural attractions: Carrara is known as the “city of marble” for its quarries, such as the working mine at La Piana. These are located in the nearby mountains and some can be visited. They are spectacular sites containing vast deposits of the rock. Marble has been quarried here for approximately 2,000 years.

-Outdoor activities: The hilly and mountainous terrain of the Apuan Alps offers visitors with Massa-Carrara holiday farmhouses ample outdoor activities. There’s hiking and mountain biking in the autumn, spring and summer, and skiing at resorts in Lunigiana during the winter. Massa-Carrara’s Apuan Coast features attractive, wide beach expanses, but tourists may also feel revitalised with a trip to the countryside by Lucca Region, where gorgeous holiday rentals are also available.

-Food and drink: Like many places in Tuscany, Massa-Carrara has its own regional delicacies. Meat-filled tordelli and lasagne intordellate are two typical Massese pasta dishes, and herb cakes filled with cheese, egg and wild vegetables are a local favourite. Spongata is a typical desert. This is a puff-pastry tart containing dried fruit and jam.
