The province of Pistoia is quite large, including both flat valleys as well as hilly and mountainous sections, including the Valley of the Ombrone river, the Valdinievole and the Pistoia Mountains, where you can go skiing. The area of Pistoia is also very well known for the cultivation of plants and flowers exported all over the world, with a long tradition of local nurseries being passed down generation after generation. Thermal baths are another important resource for the province of Pistoia and The thermal baths of Montecatini and Monsummano can boast of waters with beneficial health effects and thus are much sought after by anyone wishing to take care of themselves, as well as treat themselves to spa treatments. These are the thermal baths which hosted nobility and royalty, as well as more recent movie stars, through the centuries. Outdoors and sport lovers will love the Pistoia Mountains, both in the summer and in the winter, when the ski slopes and lifts are open. Pistoia is located in the so-called "Tuscan chocolate valley", an area that extends between Pisa, Pistoia and Prato in which we can find some of the most renowned Italian artisan chocolate makers known in Italy and beyond.View villas in Pistoia

Restaurants in the area serve pizza, pasta and traditional Tuscan dishes.
Pistoia is a little-known delight. It lies in the tourist heart of Tuscany, a stone's throw from Florence, Lucca and Siena, but tends to get missed out by travellers. Yet Pistoia is a gem. All the ingredients of an old Tuscan city are there - old walls, striped churches, frescoes, medieval watchtowers, arcaded piazzas - packed into a rather small centre. If you have both the interest and the stamina, there's sufficient to keep you busy in the town centre, most of the accredited sights have information boards outside in English and Italian and there are bars and restaurants in which to take a break from sightseeing.
