Fabulous! Runs every half hour and takes less than 10 minutes to make the journey between the old and new towns of Montecatini Terme. Fantastic views, great novelty value and only €7 for the round trip. We travelled up for our afternoon meal but other travellers told us the view's beautiful at night. There's a lunch break, so the next... More

For those ok with heights, this is a great, fun trip to do, good value too at €3, to access the old part of Montecatini, Montecatini Alto. The views while travelling are fantastic, they reveal themselves slowly as you move upwards, especially if standing outside on the deck. A little gem, full of history.

This was a great experience, if you are near Montecatini Terme I would try my utmost to experience this cable car. The view from the top is more than worth the journey alone.

Well worth going on, queue early to get in the front and go up around 8pm or earlier to avoid the crowds. Good experience for everyone.

This is a lovely way to reach Montecatini Alto. Otherwise you can walk. Montecatini Alto is well worth a visit for lunch or dinner with spectacular views. The funcolare is cheap, efficient and fun. It is quite a steep hill to mount. I would recommend this mode of transport.

A reasonably priced, but slow, ride up the side of a mountain, which does become very steep as you get to the top- 34% plus. Well worth taking this to the top if you are in Montecatini Terme and have a few hours to spare

So, at first I was a bit sceptical about the cable car because we have one at my hometown and it isn't that spectacular. But this one is something special and I enjoyed every second of the ride as the view of Montecatini Terme just progressively spread over the green trees that surround the rails.

My husband and I were on a Cosmos tour which took us to Montecatini Terme for a few nights. This is a lovely spa town in Tuscany, worth a visit itself, although we were using it as a base to explore nearby Tuscan towns, such as Florence and San Gimignano. With some downtime in the middle of our busy itinerary,... More

Great views as you travel up and down the hill. The railway shuts at lunchtime for around 90 minutes, so be aware.
