Very interesting and fast way to come to Montecatini Alto. Fun for children. Good scenery around during the trip. On the top there are a lot of small shops and restaurants. We went to WOW restaurant with a great view, highly recommended!

A good way to get to Alto saves the legs and the views are brilliant. Its good that it has been restored and not left to the ravages of time. Everyone can now enjoy this quirky train journey

The Cable Car in Montecatini is a Must Do! It is old, charming and a quick way to the old village of Montecatini Alto. Once at the top you can enjoy the views, eat at one of the many restaurants, visit the church and park or browse the little shops. The view is the best part. At the restaurants you... More

Nice ride up the side of the mountain to Montecatini Alto. Plenty of places to eat and relax. Well worth the venture

The first time I stayed in Montecatini, I hiked it up the hill to M. Alto. I don't recommend it unless you are in good shape (and it's a constant watch for traffic.) The funicolare is the ideal solution.. safer and a quiet, fairly inexpensive means to get to the summit. After exiting the topside station, it's less than a... More

Lots of history about this funicular on how and why it was built. Worth a trip to Terme, especially Sunday just too see all the families dressed up for church and the grounds & views around the church & village.

The Funicolare was a very good way of getting up to Montecatini Alto. It was an enjoyable ride up as the sun was setting and an equally as enjoyable ride down in the half light half dark atmosphere. At 7 euros a return, the pricing was good and not too expensive. It seemed to be the quickest way to get... More
