Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Surrounded by gardens and fantastic Tuscan views Hotel Torretta's a friendly holiday retreat. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The location's great if you want to explore other Tuscan towns and cities around you like, Florence, Lucca and Pistoia which are all within an hours drive from the hotel.

If you walk down the road you'll find the Montecatini funicular which will take you to Montecatini Alto, the old town which is full of bars and restaurants, where you can sit on cobbled streets and take in the town's bustling atmosphere. 

If all you want is a day relaxing by the pool then grab a sunbed by the hotel's pool and hot tub. You can also visit the Terme Tettuccio, Montecatini's most famous thermal spa, which is just a six minute walk down the road. You can't come to Montecatini and not check out this gem.

Transfer Time: approx. 50 mins by shared transfer from Pisa airport.

Montecatini

The thermal waters of Montecatini have been reeling in day trippers since Roman times. Explore the art nouveau Terme Tettuccio before hopping on the oldest funicular in the world. It takes you up to Montecatini Alto – a medieval village with spectacular views of North Tuscany.

It's not far from two of Italy’s most famous cities: Florence and Pisa. Here, art galleries, palazzos and Michelin-starred restaurants vie for your attention. For something a little more laid-back, Lucca comes ringed by Renaissance walls. Cycle or walk them for long-range views over both the city and Tuscan countryside.

What to see on a Montecatini holiday

Montecatini is a great town to explore - we love the thermal spas here and you can't beat a leisurely lunch in the pretty piazza. The train station makes it easy to explore further afield too. Head for cities like Florence, Pisa, Siena and Lucca for a culture-filled day out. You can even go a bit further afield to the Tuscan Coast and grab some seafood by the beach.

Why book a holiday in Montecatini with Inghams?

We've been working with our hotels in Montecatini for years so you can be sure you'll be well taken care of. All our hotels are centrally located too, making them a great base for your Tuscany holiday. With Inghams, your holiday is always in safe hands.

Things to Do

Things to see and do

Head for Via Verde in Montecatini's centre for plenty of shops and restaurants to explore. It's the town's main street and if you keep following it, you'll end up at the famous thermal spas. Book in for a treatment and spend time in the healing waters. The funicular railway is another must-do - it's over 100 year's old and will take you up to Montecatini Alto for some incredible views over Tuscany's countryside. 

We recommend getting out of the town too - lots of Tuscany's best towns are close by. Fill your days with trips to Florence, Siena and Pisa. Don't forget the lesser-known places too. You can escape the crowds in little towns like Fosdinovo and Collodi.

In July this year don't miss the Lucca Summer Festival, a huge outdoor concert for music lovers. It's a great event for dancing the night away. If books and food are more your speed then try out the annual Food and Book Festival in Montecatini Terme in May.

Food & drink

Tuscany is famous for its food and wine so you can be sure of trying some amazing food while you're here. Our favourite dishes are bistecca alla fiorentina and panzanella. Head out into the vineyards for a spot of wine tasting. Italy's most famous wines are produced here and it's very special being able to sip them while gazing out over the vines.

Activities

While it's easy to get around by train to some of the major cities and towns, you can't beat putting on your hiking boots and heading out into the hills. There's plenty of trails in and around the town with fantastic countryside views. It's a very hilly region so you need to be reasonably fit, but the rewards are more than worth the effort.
