Create an itinerary including Walls of Monteriggioni
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.

  • Currently closed, but still can be viewed from below. The whole wall is preserved and viewable. Unique chance to study medieval defense
  • it is a lovely town going around but when you climb the wall, nothing to see… I would recommend you go some other towns if you are not local people who really travel so many places and have nowhere else to go…
