The UCI Road World Championship passes through… Montecatini

The next city of the UCI Road World Championship we're going to discover is Montecatini. If you have missed the previous posts about Pistoia and Fiesole here they are! Montecatini is situated in the Valdinievole area, 15 kilometres west of Pistoia, 50 kilometres northwest of Florence and just 40 minutes by car from the Tyrrhenian coast. The thermal waters and the spas are the main attraction of Montecatini: from massages to mud baths, from saunas to beauty treatments, Montecatini has a lot to offer for your relaxation.

Another attraction of Montecatini is the upper part of the town: Montecatini Alto. It can be reached in 5 minutes by car or in 10 minutes with the funicular railway, but the cyclists of the UCI Road World Championship will go up there by bike!
