A Weekend in Montecatini

Montecatini is a delight to visit, not just during summer or spring but also in wintertime. Nothing beats sitting in a hot thermal bath while the rain pours down outside or enjoying a gourmet Tuscan dinner and glass of the best red wine while your hands can avoid the cold outside.

With the thermal baths of Montecatini so close to us, the Hotel Ercolini e Savi doesn’t have its own spa but it is a perfect base for a wellness weekend, as well as an ideal departure point to explore all that Montecatini and that surrounding area have to offer:

Padule di Fucecchio

Padule di Fucecchio

With its two hundred acres of wilderness, the largest pelagic basin in Italy is a 30-minute drive from Montecatini and a must-see attraction due to the richness of its biodiversity. Guided tours, boat trips and birdwatching workshops are just some of the activities that you will be able to experience in Padule. Have fun photographing the 12,000 bird specimens that live amongst ferns, water lilies and many other ancient plants which populate this stunning park, whose origins date back to the Medici family.

Thermal park

A feature of Montecatini is that all the spas are connected in a single thermal park enclosed by a lovely green space. The Terme del Tettuccio is the oldest and most popular spa, commissioned by Grand Duke Leopoldo at the beginning of the twentieth century, a wonderfully-decorated space sumptuously decorated by a variety of artists.

The Terme Excelsior is considered one of the jewels of the early twentieth century and today one of the finest wellness centres in Montecatini, offering mud and thermal baths of thermal waters, massage, beauty treatments and body care.

Having been transformed into an innovative spa, the Terme Redi, as well as thermal pool offers balneotherapy, massage, inhalation treatments and physiotherapy.

The other spas in the complex are the Tamerici, Grocco, La Salute and La Torretta baths.

Viale Verdi is the real Art Nouveau centre of Montecatini. Don’t miss the Palazzina Regia, summer home of the Grand Duke Leopoldo, the lovely soldiers’ monument by Giuseppe Petroni and, inside the Palazzo communale (built in 1913), the Joan Mirò painting Woman Encircled by the Flight of a Bird.

A cultural cornerstone in Tuscany for drama and music, the Teatro Verdi offers a rich programme of concerts, cabaret, modern and classical ballet, comedy and, of course, high-quality theatre.

Montecatini Alto

Montecatini Alto

A romantic lookout up on the hill, the walled town of Montecatini Alto over the area with its scenic towers and narrow streets. An ideal spot for a candlelit dinner or a wander around the local craft shops, you can reach it by car or by funicular: built in 1898 it’s actually the world’s oldest one still in operation.

Thermal baths

Thermal baths

Montecatini has always been one of the most popular spa destinations in Italy. The ancient Romans came here for the mineral-rich waters, (so-called salso-sulphate-alkaline) which are found as medium water (Regina) and weak water (Tettuccio and Rinfresco). Besides the thermal and mud baths, these waters are ideal for hydropinic treatments: drinking quantities of water to treat intestinal and liver ailments.
