World travel, inspiration, adventure, and first-class service is just the beginning of Aria Stone Gallery’s custom “World-Class Hand Selection” program. The program is a once-in-a-lifetime excursion that gives the clients a chance to experience the behind-the-scenes process of hand-selecting stone for their special project. The journey begins with first-class flight and hotel accommodations to the Carrara region of Italy to visit the famous marble mountains. Here, alongside Aria Stone Gallery’s owner, Vinny Tavares, the clients will learn first-hand what makes a slab of marble so unique, rare, and exotic. This hands-on approach is unique to Aria and gives the clients the ability to experience all stages of stone sourcing, from mining and processing, to the selection of that perfect piece
This total immersion in the culture, led by locals and stone professionals, allows the travelers to explore the rich history, culture, and cuisine of the region from which the stone is sourced. Gaze in awe over the breathtaking views of the Carrara mountains during the day, while experiencing fine dining prepared by world-class chefs in the evening.
The memories of this trip are sure to stay with our clients forever, as they will be reminded of their amazing experience every time they gaze upon their completed project. Not many people in the world will be able to tell tales of the exact origin of their stone, and even less will be able to say they got to experience hand selecting their chosen slab(s) at the physical quarry. Aria spends no expense to ensure our customers are treated like royalty.
At the end of this adventure, you will know first-hand what it means to refer to an “Aria quality” stone and why we treat each slab as a piece of art. Come along with Aria on this one-of-a-kind journey and gain the unique insight, knowledge, and education from an industry insider and Aria founder, Vinny Tavares.
