Tuscany

Duration:
4 Days | 28th Sept - 1st Oct 2022

We recommend to book in combination with selected accommodation from our Italian organisation or a selected Touroperator!

 


We have chosen for Montecatini Terme because of the beauty of Tuscany, the wellbeing of the thermal waters, the hospitality of this charming town, to simply slow down and enjoy the walks! Welcome at the Third edition of the Tuscany Walking Event!

Montecatini Terme is famous for its thermal waters and can be considered one of the biggest “spa towns” in Italy.

At the turn of the 20th century, the amount of hotels started growing and so did the need to combine the thermal bathing with fun, relax and sport. A host of trendy restaurants, theatres, night clubs opened, as well as a casino, and a lot of celebrities began to visit the city. We hope you enjoy walking with us in Tuscany!
