Nestled in the hills of Tuscany in Italia lies the small town of Montecatini. Little did I know that this town once was the destination for the rich and famous who were seeking a “healing vacation” and to rejuvinate from lifes demands.

Thermal baths in the early days.

Audrey Hepburn, Madam Curie and Guiseppe Verdi are just some of the famous names of people who have stayed in this charming town because of the healing thermal waters.

Can you imagine the time when horsecarriages dropped off health seeking people at the main entrance?

I was invited to visit this place for “Project Healthy in Italy” (read about my project here) as it is definitely something to explore in seeking the answers as to why Italy is the healthiest country in Europe and the world.

Montecatini is also the birthplace of the Italian health expert David Mariani (More on this later), who I visited with the same day, and was gracious enough to arrange everything for me.

The history of the city and the baths date all the way back to Roman times ( read about the exciting history here) and were a common part of their way of life.

They knew what we have lost along the way to what we call a “modern and progressive” life: The knowledge of how nature heals, and posesses the power to help us maintain and achieve, optimal health and a disease free body. Drinking and bathing in the mineral-rich thermal waters of Montecatini may well be one of the answers.

The time has finally come to go back to what once was lost and to rediscover old traditions and remedies for how to heal the body.  The time has come to rediscover the healing powers of the thermal waters of Montecatini…
