TOUR 7: Marble Quarries & Monte Tambura
From Campocatino to Passo Foccolaccia and an amazing marble quarry on the main ridge. Up ridge to Tambura, 2nd Highest in Apuane. Down via Arnetola Valley back to start! This is a walk that takes in the main feature of the Alpi Apuane, MARBLE !!! The quarry’s that you see and pass through have the pure white marble of Carrara, leaving scares on the landscape, hard to cover up, but impressive in their own right. Tambura, one walks on a ridge line up to the peak and down with great views all around the mountain. Small scramble sections involved, but other wise a good cricular walk Moderate to Challenging - some scrambling – long – 7hrs
