The Grand Hotel Vittoria dates all the way back to 1900 and has an excellent quality throughout. It has quiet surroundings and the gardens and pool are the perfect place to get away from it all. The terrace is one of our favourite places to enjoy a peaceful glass of prosecco after a day walking around Montecatini and the Tuscan countryside.

Relaxing in the Liberty Spa

The Liberty Spa is the perfect place to relax and make use of their sauna, steam room and whirlpool (payable locally). There are two restaurants that serve authentic Tuscan cuisine made using locally sourced produce. Take a seat in the Liberty bar and enjoy a cocktail or a soft drink before or after dinner. 

A stone's throw from central Montecatini

Staying here you'll be within walking distance of the Parco Terme and the thermal baths. In town you'll find shops and lots of restaurants to choose from. Borrow one of the hotel bikes to explore the local area, or even hire an e-bike (payable locally). The close proximity to the train station means that you can easily take day trips to other Tuscan towns like Lucca and Florence.

Montecatini

The thermal waters of Montecatini have been a hit with visitors since Roman times, but they really took off in the 20th century, when famous composers and film stars cottoned on to its therapeutic qualities. But, there’s life beyond the baths. A funicular nips up to the heights of medieval Montecatini Alto and footpaths wind through forests and ancient pilgrimage routes. Montecatini is also a great spot for exploring the rest of Northern Tuscany, with public transport networks connecting to Florence, Pisa and the sandy Tuscan coast.

Relaxing in star-studded spas

Follow in the footsteps of Verdi, Marie Curie, Audrey Hepburn and Versace by taking a dip in the thermal waters of Montecatini. Don’t miss having a glug of the drinking waters in the Terme Tettuccio whilst admiring the Romanesque columns, fountains and pools. Alternatively, swap a swig of spa water for a cappuccino or Chianti on the piazza – one of the best places in Montecatini for a leisurely lunch and a cold glass of white wine.

Exploring Montecatini Alto

A funicular links Montecatini to its medieval older sister, Montecatini Alto. Once a fortress-like town guarded by gated towers and well-armed sentries, it’s now a popular spot for admiring the views across Northern Tuscany – and for having pizza on the pretty piazza. On the return journey, you can swap the funicular for one of the many footpaths that twist and turn along Montecatini Alto’s forested hillside.

Walking the Camino of Tuscany

The path of Saint Jacopo follows the Via Cassia from Florence to Livorno via Montecatini, tracing the routes of pilgrims on their way to the celebrated Camino de Santiago. For something a little less epic, take a train to Borgo a Buggiano, where you can walk up to the towns in the Colle di Buggiano, where walking paths come with classic Tuscan flavours – hilltop towns included. You can also walk from Montecatini to the Colle di Buggiano which is about 4km uphill.

Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the Tuscan Riviera

Fancy exploring further afield? Head to Montecatini railway station, where trains can take you to the Tuscany's Renaissance wonders of Florence, Lucca and Pisa in an hour or less. The Tuscan coast – AKA Tuscan Riviera, if you’re feeling fancy – is also in easy reach by train. Pack a beach bag and aim for the sands of Viareggio, where rows of sun-bleached Art Nouveau buildings hint at its heyday as a 1920s beach resort. The sandy beach is still very popular, with sun loungers spanning into the horizon – and a coastal train line that provides a great escape from the crowds.
