Tales of Tuscany

NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT
(limited dates/availability)

Based in the beautiful spa resort of Montecatini, this tour takes in the treasure trove of art that forms resplendent Florence, the hidden gem of medieval Pistoia, and a Puccini concert in the place of his birth, Lucca

A refreshing, relaxing and innately elegant place to unwind, Montecatini Terme has enjoyed an air of exclusivity since its late-19th/early-20thcentury heyday, when the town’s ethos was that ‘art is a way of life’. Art Deco design and Liberty architecture flourished; outdoor orchestral concerts were added to cultural events; and the Terme Tettuccio topped the bill for grandeur in Tuscany’s most famous thermal spa resort. All these are still maintained today, along with formal gardens, a modern art museum, and myriad up-market boutiques for town centre browsing; and with a funicular up to Montecatini Alto, the medieval Borgo area, for the market, panoramic views, and a piazza full of restaurants. For exploration further afield, frequent trains take you, in under an hour, to Pistoia, Florence or Lucca, in each of which we include a guided walking tour. Discovery begins as soon as you land in Pisa, where there is time to view its unmissable tilting tower. In less-visited Pistoia, the focus is its fabulous central square, hemmed with medieval monuments; Florence is an exquisite enclave of art and architecture, lining the banks of the River Arno; and Lucca’s Renaissance ramparts encircle botanical gardens in an historic Old Town.
