the ticket includes walk on the walls and little city museum you can learn more about this community. It is a medieval village surrounded by walls, taking part in the war between Sienna and Florence seen lots of death, betrays and triumphs. Now it is a sleepy little town invaded every year by tourists. Best time to visit out of... More

This walled village is still a functioning village today with great little shops and restaurants. Climbing the walls to see the spectacular views below is a must do.

We stopped in this town on a whim and decided to climb the walls on a whim. I'm so glad we did because it was unexpectedly fun. The 3 euro ticket includes a trip to the museum, which was also surprising and delightful.

We walked across the fields to this walled town and were not disappointed. It had a lovely museum where my husband had great fun trying on armour. Some lovely little gift shops and a good food store.

Charming Village with spectacular views from the top of the wall. My visit was in February so the most everything was closed for the season. Still worth a visit for the views.

Not a place I would make a day trip out to but was a nice little stop on the way home from Siena. Interesting fact is that the walls (which you can walk on parts of) are mentioned in Dante's Divine Comedy. Some great views of the Chianti region from up there.

Wonderful 12th century example of a medieval fortified town. Weather made the views exceptional with San Giminagno easy to see.

Monteriggioni was beautiful. We went in December and the weather was perfect. It wasn't too busy and it was very cool. The walls are amazing and offer spectacular views of Tuscany and the town.

Gorgeous little walled medieval city. They have helpfully put up a metal walkway at the top of the walls with gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside and village. They also have explanatory plaques along the walk with useful information. A ticket to the city walls also gets you access to the armor museum, which is quite fun (hey let you... More

We stopped in this tiny town on the way North from Montepulciano to Volterra. It is a little ways North of Siena on the way to Florence. It is a beautiful little town with a nice square and lots of very old buildings with interesting architecture. You are also able to walk on a couple of the sections of the... More
