Get off the typical tourist trail, and visit a travertine rock quarry, during your stay in scenic Ascoli Piceno. A number of Italy’s famous landmarks are constructed from the stone, and travertine buildings can be seen all over the city center. Begin this morning tour at the Frazione Rosara quarry, where your guide—the quarry owner—will share information about its history. Then, you’ll be given chisels and other tools and can try your hand at sculpting the stone.
