“Some of the Best views in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The ride is long enough to enjoy the view after adjusting to the near vertical position of the funicular car. The old town (Alto) is more than worth the trouble to ride up to it.

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The funicolare is a great experience as it slowly takes you up the side of the mountain to Montecatini Alto. (Coming down, a front row location—standing—provides a unique experience for great photography.) At the top is a quaint laid back village. Good choice of restaurants, but the village is made for walking to see the homes and the wonderful mountain views. The only drawback: you need to take taxi from termini…unless you are up for a walk. Not a big deal

“fun ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This was fun. If you go to Montecatini do it. Most of the rest of the town seems to be resting on the laurels of a time when people like to go there for the baths

“A trip to Montecatini Alto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

You just have to take the funicolare up to Montecatini Alto. Amazing! Some lovely restaurants around the main square.....just sit with a drink and watch the world go by.
