The short train ride to the top of the hill is a novelty. Once at the top the views are stunning and there are a few small restaurants in the centre of the hill top village.

The views when you reach the top are fantastic. The smooth ride up the hill is enjoyable for even people scared of heights such as me. Good value for money too.

Loved our ride from Montecatini Terme to Montecatini Alto on the Funicolare. Takes around 10-15 minutes. We rode up just at sunset to Montecatini Alto, walked around this quaint small town, ate supper then rode down at dark. The lights of Montecatini Terme were beautiful.

Approximate 6-8 minute ride via incline to the oldest section of Montecatini. Great views of town as you ride. Crowded mid-day rides. Purchase tickets at top of Hill. A must do.

We did not go to Rome, not enough time if you want to see Florence, Pisa and the Tuscany countryside too! If you want to go to Rome, just do that!
