We were staying in nearby Guarda Veneta and looked for a town to visit. We didn't wanna see a big town, but something smaller and less-known. We haven't heard of Montagnana before, but just seen some pics online.

So headed here and parked just outside of the walls on the Viale Spalato. Free and safe!

The walls and the town itself are incredibly well-preserved and an impressive piece of architecture. The walls around town are really complete...and they really DO surround the whole town. It's nice just to walk around it, makes some nice pics. But be sure to get into town as well. Lots of nice sights and good restaurants and desserts.

We came on a sunday and the town was pretty much deserted....except for some locals. And our car the only one on the parcheggio. We enjoyed having the town for ourselfes. If you don't mind that many stores are closed, then sunday it should be.

It is quite stunning, that this fantastic place isn't more well-known. Still a bit of a secret. But among Italians it seems famous enough, there are festivities in and around the walls quite regularly.

Thanks to the admirable and patient work of the city (which used nearly 20 years to rebuild this fantastic medievalist wall !), we can admire the panorama... just splendid !
A sweet sensation of dominating the world. You can see outside the big doors of entrance as well as the inside of the city... A good return back to the past !
It's not exprensive at all to visit this attraction and you also can do it during summer time by night ! It's a bit difficult for whom has got some problems with his knees or legs, because you have to climb a little bit at the beginning. But after, when you're there, it's all flat.... very cute !

Beautiful living city inside the medieval wall/fortified city, for sure have one castle here. Historical wall, But it's little bit neglected the building inside the wall for my opinion. Walking around the whole wall it's awesome!!!
When we visit Have a spring fair outside the cinta muraria so it's hard to find parking, but we had try some street food and see a lot of things. Overall I love it!!
