The Port of Marina di Carrara has ancient origins dating back to the first century B.C. They used this stretch of coastline for the embarkation of white marble destined for Rome and other cities of the Empire. It has always been considered the world’s most important port of call for stone products: its location is strategic, serving the Northwest and Central Italian markets, in synergy with the port of La Spezia. It consists of a safe water basin: four docks equipped to handle all types of dry goods, including containers. All useful services for ships and goods are available in the port 24 hours a day, even exceptional transports find their optimal solution in the services of its port.
