Montecatini Terme located in Tuscany, is not a resort: it’s the biggest spa-town in Italy. Here tourism is the main activity: every year 200 hotels sell 2 million overnight-stays for travelers who want to see the city amenities and to take short trips to the nearby art-cities: Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Siena… all easily reachable by bus or by train (2 train stations: “Montecatini Terme-Monsummano” and “Montecatini Centro”). The spas, the Golf Club, the funicolar “Funicolare”, markets, theatres, many restaurants and night clubs make a glad vacation in Montecatini. Concerts, fairs, ballrooms, art exhibitions and festivals attracts the local (21000 inhabitants) and the tourist in a well organized and a pleasant agenda. After the belle-epoque growth, now the spas offer not only the well-known healing waters but also all the modern relax treatments.
