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.

This was one of our stops on a wine tour and the view was incredible. The town has some great places to eat and shop. Everyone was welcoming. more »
We learned about this place from acquaintances. It is very small and manageable but well worth a visit. Especially the wall that surrounds the city is impressive, as is the view. The museum is also included for around € 4.- entry and should not be missed. We ate there immediately afterwards and enjoyed another wonderful day in beautiful Tuscany
Breathtaking view and simply gorgeous! Ticket office at the entrance for access to the walkway. One of the most beautiful Tuscan villages! Clean, well maintained and welcoming.
