One of the two observatories is under repair. Would be better if we could walk the whole walls. Museum is interesting but small.

This place has a lot of interesting history. Well worth a visit. ..but very touristy. Expect to see an interesting museum but almost everything else is a tourist experience.

It was only possible to visit one section of the walls during our visit due to maintenance. There was nothing much to see other than how thick the walls are and the view. It is not possible to walk on the wall itself. A tour...More

Monteriggioni was built as a fortress guarding the way between Siena and Florence in the 12th century. The two cities were bitter rivals and fought many battles in the region between. The walls are almost 100% intact and in the summer there is a medieval...More

Its a nice thing to do when you visit Monteriggioni. The view is outstanding! Safe for kids too. Only not so nice if you are affraid of heights as the staircases are transparant.

The castle has been beautifully preserved and it is still lived in. The grounds are gorgeous. The church that is inside of the walls was built in the 1200's as was the rest of the castle, simple, with a sense of serenity that cannot only...More

The title of the review says it all. Dramatically photogenic from below with wonderful views from ramparts but the level of access[two small sections-reduced charge for seniors] is a disappointment. Entry ticket also buys you access to a small armoury museum in the town.

There are no "tours" per se. It's an open little town that would welcome a visit. Despite its size, it is a real town and doesn't treat itself like an attraction. There is parking in the main square and other locations... More
