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.

Whilst Terme is beautiful, Alto is stunning and the best way the get up to it is via this cable driven funicular. You get a real feel for the steepness of the escarpment. It's also reasonably priced.

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!
