Pistoia Details

The province of Pistoia is located in the northern Italian region of Tuscany, or Toscana in Italian. Geographically, the province is divided into three regions: the Piano dellOmbrone, the Valdinievole and the Montagna Pistoiese. The Valdinievole and the Montagna Pistoiese have mountainous areas; actually, the Montagna Pistoiese is almost entirely mountainous, as indicated by its name, and attracts tourists both for its natural beauty and characteristic towns and cultures. The Piano dellOmbrone includes the capital city of the province, also called Pistoia; the city has a number of important monuments from the Romanesque and Renaissance periods. For example, check out the Cathedral, constructed in the 10th century, along with its baptistery, bell tower and crypt. For some relaxation after your outdoor and historical activities, head to the town of Montecatini Terme; attractions here include a number of popular spas. If youre looking to immerse yourself in the Tuscan experience for a weekend, Pistoia may be the right answer.
