GÜN 17 Günlerden Cumartesi
Sabah yağan yağmur neredeyse arabanın tepesini sökecek .O kadar yani...
Saat 09:00 a doğru kalktım ve idareye dün gece ki arazi zaptı, davasını anlattım.Önce orada görevli biri meseleyi kavramadan konuya daldı..nerdeyse biz kusurlu olacağız..Ulan her isteyen her yere kurulabiliyorsa ...o zaman ne diye kampa vardığımızda bir afra ,tafra ile her taraf zaten boşken, yer gösteriyorsunuz ? diye üzerine yürüyünce ,Allahtan bize yardımcı olan kadın, durumu çabuk anladı ve İsviçrelilere durumu bildirdi.Adamlar bir saate boşaltacaklarını söylediler.Ben tekrar yatıp uyudum.Uyandığımda herifler yüklemeyi nerdeyse tamamlamışlardı.Ben de arkadaki Gazebo ya geçtim.Yazılar çiziler ve hesaplar yaparken herifler yerimizi boşalttılar.
Öğlen, Ayşecik, bize mükellef bir sofra kurdu.Vallaha muazzam bir "open buffet" oldu hani...
Şaraplarımızı içtik ve biraz dinlendik.Saat 17 :00 de yola çıktık.Montecatini 60 km mesafede bir yer.
Yolda yine yağmurlar var .Kentte pazar yeri kurulmuş oradan sıyırdık ve Funiculare yi bulduk.
1898 den kalma müthiş bir alet.İlk başta hiç itimat telkin etmiyor fakat şansımızı denemeğe karar verdik.Funiculer bizi Alto Terme denilen tepeye çıkardı.Manzara nefes kesici.Alt ta tarihin ünlü kaplıcası Montecatini yer alıyor.Biraz bilgi vereyim fakat maalesef türkçe bilgi yok ..
 Montecatini Terme is an Italian district of 21,095 inhabitants within the province of
Pistoia in Tuscany. The most important center in Valdinievole. The town is located at the eastern end of Piana di Lucca and has a strong vocation for tourism, as well as industrial and commercial industries based around the spa, which in turn has increased the interest for hotel accommodation in the region.
History
The presence of humans in the area of Montecatini Terme is very old. Probably since
Paleolithic times, the region was inhabited by nomadic hunters, but it has been thoroughly recorded only from the Mesolithic period, especially in the hills of the Valdinievole of which Montecatini is the major center.In 1530 at the foot of Montecatini, baths were constructed and adapted to contain the already known Spa waters, which had assumed the name "Medici" and "of blackbirds".
Montecatini, the once impregnable fortress fell into poor repair caused by the centuries of battles and general lack of maintenance. So when the Medici and their troops went on the offensive, Montecatini fell under the Medici who plundered mercilessly, even taking away doors and windows. Cosimo not happy and full of resentment for Montecatini, ordered to "destroy the foundations", and so day after day, eight hundred soldiers destroyed the walls, towers and houses, leaving only one hundred and sixty houses, three convents, the palace of the Podestà and the Palace of Justice standing after this onslaught.The following centuries passed quietly until the early
20th century, specifically 1905, when what was once a small village at the foot of the hill of Montecatini became "City of Bagni di Montecatini ". This name, however, had no luck, and was changed later to the present name of, "Montecatini Terme.During the same period at the turn of the 20th century the tourist experience was diversified and improved. The hotels had grown in number and quality, it was also noted the necessity to combine health, fun, relaxation and sport. It soon became home to fashionable restaurants, theaters, nightclubs, and a casino. Celebrities began to frequent the city. In fact, between the end of the 1800's and the early decades of the 1900's was easy to meet, in the tree-lined avenues, parks or at the bars of the city, people like Giuseppe Verdi, [ [Pietro Mascagni]] Ruggero Leoncavallo Trilussa Beniamino Gigli or Luigi Pirandello.
With these celebrities Montecatini became a true meeting point of international renown: here discussions of politics, business closures were agreed and its reputation grew to the point that, in 1926 an attendance of 75,000 non residents was recorded in the city, a remarkable figure for that time.
The reputation of the town was recognized with the visit from the leader of government,
Benito Mussolini, May 16, 1930, with Lando Ferretti.
Montecatini Terme is one of the most popular destinations in Italy for thermal spa tourism.The local specialty, waffles Montecatini, made with egg and sugar, is much sought after as a dessert. 
Devam ediyoruz.Tepeye vardığımızda buranın küçük bir dağ pırlantası olduğunu görüyoruz..Her tarafı dolaştık yağmur ve nem insanı bezdiriyor.Köpekler bile saçak altlarına kaçışıyor.Meydan da güzel bir kahvede kahvelerimizi yudumladık.
"Kar bora fırtına sükun bulacak,
Sana düşmanlar, sana düşmanlar selam duracak" konumu
Fünikulerimize bindik ve tekrar ovaya döndük.Şahbaz a bindik Viareggio ya döndük.
