Subject: Italian spas & Gatwick
Montecatini Terme is a well known spa resort on the road from Florence to Lucca. It's of course not a fancy place, just hotels, spas and parks, but from there you can easily take many day trips to Lucca's villas or Pisa. The Gatwick express takes 45 minutes to Victoria station: just across the station you can board a narrated bus tour around London. The ticket allows you to hop-on and off the bus anywhere for sightseeing or lunch, and then board the next one. The bus runs every 15 or 20 minutes through the day, the ticket should be around 5 pounds. Have a nice trip both of you. Paolo Trieste, Italy
