trip ideas while in Montecatini

Hello everyone.

I will be in Montecatini for a week in July. I have been before with tour groups, and I have visited Siena, San Gimgnano, parts of the Chianti region, Pisa, and, of course, Florence. This time I would like to travel to other parts of Tuscany. I will be alone, so I really didn't want to rent a car. Anyone have any suggestions as to where else to visit in Tuscany, and, more importantly, how to get there?

Thank you!!

Here's a useful map of the train routes in Tuscany. From Montecatini Terme you can see how you're able to plan your journey to visit other towns:

The local trains will take you to Viareggio - a coastal town thats worth a look. You can also take the bus to Pescia which is quite a nice town. Good luck - enjoy.

I agree completely. Lucca is on my list--for a couple of days. It is one of my favorite places in Italy.

Hi there

This year, whilst in Tuscany, we visited Montecatini by train from Pisa. It is possible to visit Pistoia from Montecatini; it's the next town east of Montecatini on the way to Florence. You'll enjoy Pistoia!
