I'm staying in Lucca for a few days at the end of the month and want to have some time in Montecatini . So far my agenda is to take the train to Montecatini . Not sure which station is best, Centro or Terme ?? From there I will walk to the thermals baths. I think at this stage I only want to go for a swim, the menu on the website is a little confusing for the treatments and I think the fact that I'm going to have a somewhat busy few days it might be a waste of money having relaxation treatments if I don't really have time to relax ? I see from the website that swimming is 12 euros for 1 hour which is ok. Do you have to wear a swimming hat of some sort. I had been to thermal baths in Ischia a few years back and this is what we had to do. Are towels given or do you have to bring your own ? what about swimwear ? Is a bikini ok, or is a swimsuit more the norm ? Would I have to have a reservation for just swimming ?
Thanks for any info
