Urbanity and calm hot springs exist in perfect harmony in Montecatini. With its magnificent parks, its striking downtown, its high fashion venues and its buildings that point to bygone eras, this “garden city” makes a prime vacation spot for wellness, cultural activities and pure relaxation. The hot springs of Montecatini are Italy’s main thermal center and among the best in Europe. A hub for tourism, business, sport, wellness and hospitality, the area is the beating heart of Tuscan spa culture, and the properties of the local waters offer a boost to both health and beauty.
Montecatini Terme’s springs have been well known since Roman times. The town was founded as a spa center at the base of the centuries-old Castello, today Montecatini Alto. The town also offers a taste of the Belle Èpoque: the magical atmosphere of that era can be experienced in historic venues such as Caffè delle Terme, the Locanda Maggiore, the Gambrinus porticoes and the frescoed spa establishments, decorated in the Liberty style.
7 spas (Excelsior, Redi, La Salute, Leopoldine, Regina, Tamerici and Tettuccio) offer a comprehensive system of treatments, overseen by experts and qualified, well-equipped medical professionals. Spa treatments change with the seasons and offer solutions to any and all wellness-related needs. The thermal waters used in treatments at the Tettuccio, Redi and Excelsior Wellness Center spas come from the Rinfresco, Tettuccio, Regina and Leopoldine springs and gush up from the subsoil already warm.
On the ground floor of the Excelsior establishment is a salon for hydropinic treatments. One floor up is the Wellness Center, with an ample and diverse range of spa treatments, aimed at meeting your every need, providing prime relaxation as well as fitness, beauty and wellness opportunities. Think massages from both Western and Eastern traditions, Jacuzzis, specific body and face treatments and even options to help you slim down or just relax.
The Montecatini springs are the ideal place to get your body feeling its best and to spend an enjoyable, regenerating vacation.
