MONTERIGGIONI is a unique, very small midieval walled village. Located on a natural hillock, built by the Sienese in 1214–19 as a front line in their wars against Florence. Not a usual tourist stop, but a very interesting place to visit.

Lovely little village but unfortunately a tourist trap.could not find a place to eat but I would actually encourage people to just go see it and then go into the countryside for dinner

A relatively unknown town in Tuscany, Monteriggioni is surrounded by a town wall hundreds of years old. The old town (the entire town, in fact) is comflrtably wallable in a couple of minutes.

This village was of strategic importance in the struggle between Siena and Florence, so much so that, shortly after its defeat, the city of Siena itself surrendered to Florence. It is possible to live the medieval atmosphere, but to do so avoid the center (unless you want to eat something), rather forward in the narrow streets, in the "museum of arms" and, if you have time (an hour and a half between round trip), you can also get to walk to "Abbadia Isola" (this stretch is part of the Francigena). If you arrive early in the morning you could also park for free, otherwise there are
otherwise there are surely some paying places.

Centro Storico di Monteriggioni is the historical centre of this little medieval town, located in Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. This town is really charming is a tiny medieval town on the hop of a hill and totally surrounded by wall. Really it is a medieval town! We visited this town with my 3 years old daughter (in August-2019) and all of us enjoyed a lot. We walked around all town, we went up to the walls and see the very beautiful views of Tuscany, we visited the main church (Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta), the Armor Museum (Museo delle Armature), taste and buy local wines (Castello di Monteriggioni Winery), eat in one of the restaurants of the main square (Il Feudo, excellent local food and wine) and obviously my daughter run, play, laugh, enjoy and eat with us. So, a wonderful medieval town with a very nice walls. Top in the region!

I'm sad we didn't see more of this place. We were on a tight schedule during a Chianti wine tour for our anniversary, but we still managed a good walk-around and to hit a couple of gift shops.

It is tiny but really nice. There are so many beautiful corners to stop by for a while and enjoy the surroundings. The church, the walls, the gardens, the two doors that give access to the fortress. There are very nice shops and also restaurants, and ice dealer. We were there in occasion of the Medieval Festival "Monteriggioni di torri si corona". It is held every year the first two week ends of July. It is a unique atmosphere, people attired in medieval costumes, various shows in the streets, medieval food, plays, music, battle and shows with fire. On the last night we saw fireworks with music. Really stunning.
