“A lovely way to get up to the old town”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

In certain places it was a little scary for me as I have a problem with heights but my partner loved it. It only took about 10 minutes and it was certainly worth it as the old town was lovely. We enjoyed a lovely meal and visited a church where they had a exhibition of old and new photographs.

“Don't miss this when staying in Montecatini”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Lovely little old fashioned train, worth doing just for the great views from Montecatini Alto at the top. But would recommend spending the day and having lunch in one of the lovely restaurants in the square. There is also a good deli up there with very good proscuito which they hand cut for you.

Reviewed October 14, 2013

Had I known that you can ride in the open rear compartment I would have done so especially when on the way down from the old town
