Hotel Ambasciatori Palace is a contemporary hotel in the centre of Montecatini Terme. With a fantastic rooftop view and an ideal location for exploring, it's ideal for a comfortable stay.

Views of Montecatini from the terrace

One of the highlights of this hotel is the rooftop terrace with its swimming pool and views of the surrounding town and Tuscan countryside. Head up to the 8th floor in the evening and treat yourself to a romantic rooftop dinner or a cocktail with a view!

Between the spa and park

Just a five minute walk from Montecatini's thermal spa and Montecatini's main park in the other direction, the Ambasciatori Palace is in a fantastic location for popping out the door and straight into the action. If you want to explore even further, there's not far to look, with the funicular up to Montecatini Alto just a 15 minute walk away and the train station 20 minutes away. It's easy to hop on a train to Florence, Lucca or Pisa and be back in time for supper!

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.

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. Terme Excelsior is notable for its massages and mud treatments – as well as its extravagant Renaissance-style exterior. And 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.

Up to 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 10-minute bus ride to Colle di Buggiano, where walking paths come with classic Tuscan flavours – hilltop towns and trattorias included.

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.
