Montecatini Terme is situated in the heart of Tuscany near Florence, Lucca, Pisa, and Viareggio on the coast.
It's a pleasant and peaceful town reminiscent of bygone days with a big park in the center, 3 thermal establishments, an elegant wellness center, high quality shops, and nice bars and restaurants. With its many reasonably-priced hotels and convenient location on the rail line, Montecatini Terme makes an excellent base for exploring Tuscany. A historic funicular railway, more than 100 years old, runs from Montecatini Terme up the hill to the picturesque hill town of Montecatini Alto where there's a small castle, three churches, a large square with restaurants and outdoor cafes, a few tourist shops, and great views over the countryside.

About Thermal park Tettuccio
Terme Tettuccio is one of several spas set in a park inside the town of Montecatini Terme. The name Tettuccio refers to the little roof found over the spa's source when the spa was being built to its modern configuration.
Terme Tettuccio doesn't do massages, baths, or other treatments associated with the other thermal spas found in Montecatini Terme. Here it's about  drinking the waters.
Four sources are "served" at the spa:
• Leopoldina Waters - indicated for the treatment of cronic constipation. Normal bowel function is generally restored whenever treatment cycles are spaced at 4/6 month intervals.
•Regina Waters - restores a regular bile flow from the liver to the bowels and are useful in the case of hepatic an bladder disorders.
•Tettuccio Waters - effective in the depurative process of the liver, and can help reduce cholesterol levels.
•Rinfresco Waters - The diuretic waters favor the process of waste elimination through the urinary system as well as the restoration of normal saline levels after prolonged sports activities.
