The Tuscan Gourmet | Travel & Logistics


Our program is located in the Neo-Classical town of Montecatini Terme. Italy’s most alluring thermal spa town. Ancient Etruscans thought the water here to be a cure for the body and spirit. Cooking instructions will be held in a restored 16th Century Wheat Mill. A ten-minute ride from the hotel through the beautiful hillsides of Tuscany, promising an oasis of serenity. Montecatini Terme is conveniently located between Florence, Lucca, Pisa, and Siena.

Getting to Montecantini Terme

The closest Airports are the Florence Airport and the Pisa Airport. The Florence Airport is about 25 miles away from Montecatini Terme, while the Pisa Airport is a bit further at approximately 35 miles away. Treasures of Tuscany will have a car with driver awaiting your arrival to escort you to Montecatini Terme.

Our first adventure begins Sunday evening at 7:00pm, which is the first day of your scheduled trip. Keep in mind: When traveling to Tuscany you will lose a day. Please choose a flight that will get you to the Florence or Pisa Airport late Sunday morning or early afternoon.

Included in the trip is round trip Airport to Hotel ground transportation from the Florence and Pisa Airports (Sunday arrivals and Saturday departures). Shuttle transportation is only available on the days of your scheduled trip. Should you arrive on a non-scheduled shuttle day, we will give you information on how to get to the Hotel, but the cost will be separate and not included in your package.

Set beside to the thermal park of Montecatini Spa Center, this gorgeous location is less than a five-minute stroll to the Center of town. The Grand Hotel Croce di Maltais advantageously located between Florence, Lucca, Pisa, and Siena.
