Overview

Montecatini Terme located in Tuscany is not a resort: it’s the biggest spa-town in Italy. Here tourism is the main activity: every year 200 hotels sell 2 million overnight-stays for travelers who want to see the city amenities and to take short trips to the nearby art-cities: Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Siena… all easily reachable by bus or by train (2 train stations: “Montecatini Terme-Monsummano” and “Montecatini Centro”).
The spas, the Golf Club, the funicular “Funicolare”, markets, theatres, many restaurants, and nightclubs make a glad vacation in Montecatini. Concerts, fairs, ballrooms, art exhibitions, and festivals attract the local (21000 inhabitants) and the tourist in a well organized and pleasant agenda.
After the belle-epoque growth, now the spas offer not only the well-known healing waters but also all the modern relax treatments. On the 09-12 July, Montecatini Terme is waiting for folk dance ensembles, folk bands, choirs, modern dancers, bands, majorettes to the festival.
