Walls of Monteriggioni, Monteriggioni
(4.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Walls of Monteriggioni is a fine example of a medieval walled town. Explore the village's central Piazza Roma and side streets to find hidden gardens and courtyards. Marvel at the 570 m (1,870 ft) of thick stone walls surrounding the town and the 14 towers punctuating the skyline. These were designed to protect the city from Florence's armies. Climb the barricades--nearly untouched since their construction in the early 13th century--for views of farmland and the city. Ask at the tourism center about guided tours of the city and the walls.

  • Medieval stone town, surrounded by a wall, with stunning sunset views. Its inhabitants seem to detainees at the time. Sitting around the small square that is the Centre of the village. There are many places to eat. The locals are friendly. Your source of money is the tourist trade. You can go up to the wall and enjoy beautiful views. The entrance is not expensive.

  • It is not within the best known tourist circuit, but the small city is really wonderful.

  • Small medieval village, visit enjoyable. the view of the ramparts is pretty; €3 is a little exaggerated, in addition to the mandatory parking not cheap either.
