Travel Tips for Monteriggioni

42 People live here

by oriettaIT

This is a really tiny village, only 42 people live here. The village is surrounded by tall walls with towers and really pictoresque.
I particulary enjoied to walk around the almost desert streets and watch the houses made of stones.
There is not much to do in Monteriggioni, and it can be covered in one hour easy but its very special athmosphere make it very special.
You can find out more about Monteriggioni in their official site here.
They often organize events during the summer.

What's all the fuss about?

by iandsmith

"Typical hilltop town"

My guide book calls it a "gem of a medieval town". Constructed in 1203, it became a garrison town ten years later.
In this photo you can see some of the 14 towers, built to protect Sienese lands against those Florentines to the north.
Dante was impressed to the point where he used the town as a simile for the deepest abyss at the heart of his "Inferno", comparing the "ring-shaped citadel crowned with towers" with giants standing in a moat.
