Surrounded by stunning scenery, Montecatini is an easy railway journey from Pisa or Florence airports. The town has a great musical heritage; Verdi lived here for almost ten years of his life and Puccini spent much of his life here.

Montecatini Terme is famous for its thermal waters, and for its fashionable restaurants, theatres and fountains.

“Montecatini Terme is one of the most elegant and best equipped spa towns in Italy. Designed by Grand Duke Pietro-Leopoldo I in the second half of the 18C, the town grew up around its springs at the bottom of the old Castello, present-day Montecatini Alto. The ghosts of Puccini and Verdi haunt the avenues of the splendid Parco delle Terme, which is home to the nine thermal baths restored in Liberty style between 1910 and 1920.”
