Montecatini Alto is a very romantic view point that you can reach either by car or cable car. It is one of the most beautiful places in the area. Thanks to its towers, defence walls and typical alley ways, it makes a perfect romantic hideaway for two. The cable car was built in 1898 which makes it the oldest functioning one in the world.
Montecatini has always been a very popular holiday location in Italy for spa lovers. The ancient Romans used to come here for its salso-sulphate-alkaline water rich in minerals. There are in fact three types of water here: strong water (Leopoldina), medium water (Regina) and weak water (Tettuccio and Rinfresco). Besides the thermal and mud baths, these waters are ideal for hydropinic treatments that are good for your intestine and liver.
Among the thermal baths we have here in Montecatini there is one in particular that is absolutely unique: Grotta Giusti. This spa is in Monsummano Terme, only a few minutes from the town centre. It is open all year long and has a wonderful outdoor pool with hydromassagewhere you can relax both in summer and in winter thanks to its warm water. But you may also treat yourself to a scrub, massages or an experience in the thermal grotto where you can bathe in a wonderful 34 degree warm.
