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.

  • 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.
