Visited in August 2018. It was very interesting to go inside the “cave”, it looks a bit like Moria from Tolkien. I just kept wondering at what point they will have to stop mining before the mountain falls in. But I certainly wasn t claustrophobic,...More

The best part about this tour is that you get to go inside the mountain and see how the marble is cut from the inside. Very helpful guides and everything is in English and Italian. 10 euros for about an hour is a great deal....More

No need to book in advance. Tours can be booked at site. There may be a short waiting time for next available tour but operator will make several trips if the group is too large to fit into the available SUVs.
