Montecatini Terme


Montecatini Terme Montecatini Terme


The very identity of Montecatini revolves around its health-giving baths. Just walk around its streets and you’ll see what we mean. The spas are not only beacons of wellness but also of architectural splendour: designed in the late-nineteenth-century Italian Art-Nouveau style known as Liberty, the majestic Tettuccio centre, the nature-surrounded Tamerici hotel, and the Excelsior and Regina establishments represent some of Montecatini’s most beautiful historic gems.  


Montecatini Terme’s thermal waters are world-famous, with hundreds of thousands of international tourists visiting each year to cure various ailments. A broad range of treatments for a broad range of afflictions are available at Montecatini’s spas. The skin, the lungs, the liver, the intestines, the circulatory system… all can benefit from the establishments’ therapies. Hydropinotherapy, inhalation therapy, balneotherapy, mud therapy, thermal rehabiliation and instrumental physiotherapy are all on offer, and require different amounts of time to take effect. In fact, one of the best things about coming to Montecatini is that, while you undergo the treatment, you can get to know this picturesque Tuscan district in all its glory, learning about everything from Leonardo da Vinci to Pinocchio.

Just outside Montecatini, still in Valdinievole and just a short drive away, you’ll find Monsummano’s Grotta Giusti, a luxury establishment connected to natural hot springs. Come here for an unforgettable spa experience.


Grotta Giusti, a cave and now also a luxury villa, is found on top of a deep underground thermal lake and surrounded by a lush green park. It’s the perfect place to get in touch with nature, while also treating yourself to a bit of ‘me time’. A particular highlight in the Summer months are the night-time poolside massage events… utterly magical.
