The largest and most famous of Tuscany’s spa towns, Montecatini Terme has been
revered for its curative waters since at least the 16th century
, when the first baths were built here. Two centuries later, neighborhood royalty began to take note after the opening of the town’s first grand spas, putting Montecatini Terme firmly on the aristocracy's radar. Beyond the array of fine spas featuring treatments old and new, today’s visitors come for the shopping, dining and sporting offerings, as well.
Montecatini Terme is an ideal location to visit Tuscany. Florence is only 45 minutes by car, Lucca 20 minutes, Versilia and the Carrara marble quarries are 40 minutes away, Siena is about an hour…By car, by train or by bus…choose the perfect way to explore the area, enjoy the day and then return to your hotel and rest your feet.
