Experience this unique and unforgettable opportunity
Massa and Carrara's province is located in the North of Tuscany at the intersection of some wonderful touristic spots such as Golfo dei Poeti, Cinque Terre, and the beautiful art cities in Tuscany. In this place nature has found a way to combine earth and sea with wonderful harmony.
The Apuan Alps, popular for their marble, touch the sandy beaches for many kilometers. The unique geographical position and the exceptional diversity of this territory make it a heavenly location, ideally suited for any kind of tourism.
The Lunigiana area is situated at the northern border of the province, beyond the Apuan Alps. This tiny region - one of the richest in terms of history and traditions - is named after Luni, an important center of the Ancient Roman era.
Alongside the Magra river, at the intersection with the Medieval paths of the via Francigena, we can witness the relics and remains of old and developed civilizations. Massa and Carrara's province is uniquely characterized by the Apuan Alps, a massive mountain chain that reminds of the northerner Alps due to its peaks and cliffs. These superb mountains can offer a fantastic sight along their hiking paths: the option of enjoying the sea from above. Besides the mountains and the sea, this region extending from the coast to the interior offers diverse and fascinating landscapes in every season.
I partecipanti al Jam Camp di Marina di Massa sono ospitati presso il Villaggio Torre Marina e presso l'attiguo Hotel "Il Pioppo", mentre l'attività sportiva si svolge all’interno della prestigiosa struttura fieristica di Marina di Carrara trasformata per l'occasione in una cittadella dello sport.
