A land for all tastes
The province of Pistoia is diversity and beauty. From the plains to the famous spas, to the mountains with its renowned ski slopes of Abetone and Val di Luce. A landscape that is always different and always rich, between historical and medieval villages and places of interest.
The beating heart of Tuscany, the area is also known for the cultivation of plants and flowers popular throughout the world, thanks to the long nursery tradition carried on from generation to generation. Another feather in the cap of this area are the most renowned handmade chocolate companies in Italy and beyond.
Of ancient foundation, Pistoia is a city that knows how to amaze lovers of history, art and traditions. Dubbed the “enchanted stone city”, it offers routes dotted with churches, cloisters, palaces, museums and monuments leading to the Piazza del Duomo. An obligatory stop at the Cathedral of San Zeno and, for a truly evocative experience, Pistoia Sotterranea.
The thermal baths of Montecatini and Monsummano are popular destinations for medical tourism and boast waters with beneficial effects. Sports lovers will be spoilt for choice among skiing facilities, hiking trails and adrenaline attractions such as the Suspension Bridge of San Marcello Pistoiese, about 227 metres and at a height of 36 metres over a riverbed.
What’s certain is that, sitting at a table in these parts, among oil, cold cuts, cheese and wine, you will never leave the table with an empty stomach.
