Tuscany, Italy

Funicolare Cablecar Railway

Take the scenic route on this historic railway and enjoy views across the Tuscan countryside.

Ride a historic cablecar train

Montecatini Terme’s ‘Funicolare’ Railway dates back as far as 1898. The slow-going cablecar train offers an opportunity to take in the beautiful scenery at a leisurely pace, with a trip up to Montecatini Alto taking around 10 minutes. Take the trip up just before sunset to see the Tuscan countryside bathed in golden-hour light (a real treat for photographers!) and come back down in the dark to see the lights of the city below glitter in the night.

Plenty to do

The restaurants and cafés in Montecatini Alto–where the cablecar goes–have excellent reviews, making this a wonderful choice of activity for lunch or dinner, and an experience that will be long remembered. Montecatini Terme has a lot to offer as well, as Tuscany’s top-rated spa town. Treat yourself to a day trip, or make riding the funicolare part of a longer stay in Montecatini Terme, which is a popular holiday destination for travellers from all over Europe and beyond.
