What you’ll be doing

DAY 1

Arrival Day

Welcome to Italy! Upon arrival at Pisa Airport, we’ll transfer to our hotel in Montecatini. This elegant spa town provides our base for the week. Perhaps sample a glass or two of Chianti in a charming local restaurant? In the evening, we join our other Solos guests for a welcome drink and dinner.

DAY 2

Free time in Montecatini

After breakfast, today is free for us to explore Montecatini however we wish.

This beautiful town is linked by funicular rail to Montecatini Alto, with splendid views over the Tuscan landscape. Both are charming and surrounded by gently rounded hills quilted with woods, olive trees and vineyards.

Why not head to one of the most famous thermal spas in Montecatini, Terme Tettuccio. This is a stunning Art Nouveau building with beautiful architecture and thermal springs. Even if you don’t indulge in spa treatments, a visit to admire the building is worthwhile.

DAY 3

Sightseeing in Siena

A full day of sightseeing takes us to the city of Siena, with its maze of steep and narrow streets. Nestled in the Tuscan Hills, this vibrant university city is also one of the greatest art centres of Italy, with a profusion of fine architecture.

DAY 4

Discover Florence - The 'City of Art'

Today we enjoy a full day in Florence, picturesquely situated on both sides of the River Arno, giving us time to explore the cultural sites and soak up the atmosphere of ‘La Bella’ (‘the beautiful’).
