Parco Regionale delle Alpi Apuane
- Massa Carrara - Lucca
The Apuan Alps, situated in northern Tuscany, stand out from the nearby Apennines thanks to their very rugged morphology, with their deeply incised valleys and imposing and very inclined slopes. The Apuan Alps are known for the beauty of their marble and for the deep abysses and large cavities of the karst subsoil. The geographical position of the massif, its exposure and the different nature of the rocks determine the presence of very varied and contrasting environments, which favour the floristic and faunal richness of the territory.
