This charming town reconfirms its role as the capital of thermal treatments and spas, where a vacation can be spent in total relaxation to recover one's full well-being.
Flourishing green parks, thermal establishments fully equipped with state-of-the-art technological facilities, a long-dated hotel tradition: a whole set of win-win solutions able to guarantee visitors a most pleasant stay. Those who are keen on the magical atmosphere of the belle époque can visit historical socialite locales, such as the Caffè delle Terme, the Locanda Maggiore, the Gambrinus arcades, and the thermal establishments frescoed and decorated after the Art Nouveau style. Those who wish to ‘take a break’ can turn to the several sports facilities, the hippodrome, the many elegant boutiques, premises devoted to leisure time and amusement, special events and festivals where high quality music plays a key role, in accordance with the tradition of a town that hosted the great Giuseppe Verdi.
And then, an array of excursions around the neighborhood, such as Montecatini Alto, where the town hall had its seat until 1905. Just reaching this historic old town aboard the oldest funicular in the world is a thrilling experience not to be missed. Likewise, you will be astonished once you reach the top as a spectacular view of downtown and the entire Valdinievole valley opens up before your eyes
