Overview

la piazza si trova nel centro storico di Carrara, è tra le più belle d'italia, nn è molto conosciuta a causa della poca frequenza da parte dei turisti che dalle cave si spostano direttamente altrove, ha un panorama mozzafiato e i palazzi sono un luccichio di colori, qua e la bar e localetti nonostante la piazza sia elegante e regale grazie all'imponente fontana dedicata a Beatrice con due grossi leoni da cui sgorga l'acqua proveniente da una sorgente delle li vicine alpi.

A nice square in the middle of the small and peaceful town of Carrara. Of course the marble is the main object here, as everywhere in Carrara. A few restaurants and shops - we expected a bit more...

Very typical Italian piazza with colourful classic buildings and a contemporary sculpture used by kids as a slide. Pleasant.

The best place in Italy. We stop for 15 min and spend 4 hours. It's interesting just go and look around there. Not much tourist and that's great!

Are you tired with crowds of Pisa or Florence? Visit Carrara. Pretty, colorful, authentic Tuscan town. Its heart is nice square called Piazza Alberica. I really liked it.

A nice setting in an ancient city. A piazza in white marble with views of the white marble quarries just above.
