There are many things you can see in Tuscany, the difficulty is to choose where to start. You may be attracted by amazing art and architecture of Florence or by magnificent landscapes. Nature or art lover, you must visit both sides of this Italian province.
For our International Folklore Festival we chose Montecatini Terme, the biggest “spa town” in Italy. It is a town with many thermal baths which you should not miss. After relaxation in thermal water or mud bath, you can go for a walk along the central street, as it is not far away from your hotel. In fact, you can walk everywhere. Your hotel will be close to the central square where the Folklore Festival Montecatini Terme will take place. The lovely parade of the participants and the festival itself will be followed by hundreds of visitors. In the central street there are many shops and restaurants where you can enjoy the tasty Tuscan cuisine. Don’t leave without tasting the delicious wine and the great Tuscan steak.
Montecatini Terme is a town where the buses are not allowed to get to centre. There are special parking places and inevitable ZTL fee. More about the tariffs you can see on montecatiniparcheggi.com .
The bus parking that you will pay with ZTL tax included is around 36EUR per day.
The most frequent question is ‘’how to visit Florence”?
If you decide to go by your own bus and you want to enter city center, you will have to pay very high tax (+-700 eur). There is one option to avoid this tax. You can reach the point named Villa Costanza where you won’t pay ZTL tax for buses, park your bus there and then go by T1 Leonardo tramway line to Santa Maria Novella Florence in 20 minutes.
You may also go by train from Montecatini Terme station, which is accessible on foot from each hotel. If you catch the train, you will get to Santa Maria Novella(central station of Florence) in 53 minutes.
Groups which are coming to folklore festival in Montecatini Terme by plane can choose between airports of Florence, Pisa and Bologna. For example, the most of cheap flights from Spain arrive to Bologna….
You may contact our team in order to provide bus transfers airport-hotel-airport.
The legendary leaning Pisa tower is also one of the things you will visit. But we suggest you visiting some less well-known places also, such are Siena, Luca, San Gimignano, Terme di Saturnia, Bagni San Filippo to experience real spirit of Tuscany…
If you would like to go to the seaside, Cinque Terre, fishing villages on the Tyrrhenian sea, accessible only by rail or water, will take your breath away. The nearest beach, on the other hand, is Viareggio.
