MONTECATINI TERME: EUROPE’S SPA CPITAL
Montecatini Terme, situated in Valdinievole, is one of Europe’s spa capitals. One of its most striking aspects is the large green area in the heart of the city, a spa park that covers an area of at least 460,000 sq m. The resort is famous for its ‘drink therapy’, which involves drinking the water of its spas. Other treatments include mud baths, bathing, hydrotherapy jets, physio-kinesitherapy in a thermal pool and rehabilitation therapies that lure thousands of tourists to the resort every year. Though home to only about 20,000 inhabitants, Montecatini Terme is able to accommodate at least 2,000,000 tourists every year.

The area of Montecatini has been inhabited since prehistoric times, but the first mention of Montecatini dates from 716 AD. In 1164 it was a free commune, but was later acquired by the republic of Lucca. In the 14th century its castle was besieged during the war between Florence and Lucca. The first baths were built in 1540, and in 1554 Montecatini went to the Sienese, to be subsequently destroyed in revenge by Cosimo I de Medici, first Grand Duke of Tuscany.

The recovery of Montecatini began in the 18th century, when the first bath resorts were built. In the 20th century, it became one of the most renowned spa resorts in Italy, and famous visitors included Giuseppe Verdi, Pietro Mascagni, Ruggero Leoncavallo, Trilussa, Beniamino Gigli and Luigi Pirandello.

Today, Montecatini Terme’s waters are also used for beauty treatments and general psychophysical well being. Traditionally, spa treatments have gone hand in hand with leisure activities and shopping. The resort also has many art galleries and antique shops and is famous as the Tuscan capital of Liberty Style. Consequently, many public and private buildings boast this style, mainly courtesy the artist Galileo Chini. Some of the works of the great master can be found in the town hall, at Tettuccio, at Tamerici, in the ballroom of the Grand Hotel and La Pace.

Tourists can also avail the many sports facilities in Montecatini, such as the golf course located a few kilometers from the city, near a village called La Pievaccia. For those who prefer spectator sports, an afternoon or evening at horse racecourse of Sesana is ideal. In addition, there are tennis clubs, public swimming pools, a bocce court and a clay-shooting field. There are also many trekking and mountain bike trails in the surrounding hills.
