The Port

The Port of Carrara has its origins in the ancient past, and developed from the legendary Portus Lunae, where white marble was loaded on to great ships known as "Naves Lapidariae" heading for Rome and the other imperial cities

Nowadays the Port of Carrara is the most important mercantile port for the import-export of stone products, and is located at the hub of an efficient transport network which connects it to over 85 ports in 48 nations across all continents.

Furthermore, the Port of Carrara is linked to the dense Tyrrhenian road network and the "Cisa" motorway coming from the north of Italy. There are in fact two motorway exits very near the port: Carrara (1 Km) and Massa (5 Km).
