INTO THE WHITE DISCOVERING CARRARA'S WHITE

OUR FIRST VISIT: IN MICHELANGELO'S FOOTSTEPS The first stop is at Carrara's famously majestic marble quarries, reached along breath-taking mountain roads. The same roads that James Bond races along in the opening chase of the film 'Quantum of Solace'. Apparently, during the shoot 007 murmured to his director: "in a challenge between an Aston Martin and a slab of Carrara marble, as things stand, the block of marble is still going to come off best". An unrivalled all-exclusive adventure.
