"Monteriggion di torri si corona". so Dante speaks of this beautiful village. Its walls will make you live the experience of the patrol that the knights did during the Middle Ages. P.S. If you have played assassin's creed 2, you will have the distinct feeling that you have already walked on those walls without ever having visited the city.

Walls of Monteriggioni surrounds all this little town in Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. In fact, you can park close to the walls and it is your first vision of the town. Also, when you enter in the town, you can go up in some parts of the walls, walk on them and see very beautiful views of surroundings, Tuscany land. Really, it is a very good place to come with children, because they can enjoy a lot playing, running, seeing the views always without cars.

Tourists with little time and a checklist may want to give this a miss. We were staying closeby and weren't up to anything major. We got more than what we expected. View was awesome, tiny church was enough for us to say our family prayers and walk around didnt take long but i scored me real leather boots for 45euros at one of the shoe shops/factory. The while place was just charming at sunset and it was when there was more light.

When the castle appears between the sparse trees you start feeling like back in the game ;-)
It would have been great if I could have approached the walls galloping instead of driving a car. Anyway the site really looks like the one in the famous video-game and the locals have of course build a nice business around it. Don't get me wrong the castle is beautiful on its own but having played the game helps you feeling back in time. It's everything so well preserved and you have access to the top of the wall on the west and east side of the site.

Many souvenir shops, some nice place to get delicious food & wine and an amazing little museum where you can read about the story of the castle and wear metal made replicas of armours, shields, sword etc. the armor glove is my favourite - very cool. It's a lot of fun (not only for kids).

I spent half day there including lunch in one of the restaurants - that was more than enough for me to enjoy the place. The countryside outside of the walls is beautiful.

One down side for the game fan: the villa is not there. The villa is fiction. It's never been there.

A tip for first-timers:
Entrance is free (except for parking) but you want to go to the info-point inside the castle as soon as you arrive and get the ticket for all the activities. They will also give you a map with important sites outside of the wall. Get the audio-guide and start the difficult quest to find the points the guide describes (the audio-guide could have been done way better but it's cheap).

After fighting crowds in places like San Gimignano, we enjoyed the leisurely pace of Monteriggioni. A great place for a couple of peaceful hours of semi-sightseeing/semi-lounging. Take a walk on the walls (with sweeping views of the countryside - there's a minimal charge, and it's worth it), do some poking around the town, and have a snack in the piazza.

This has to be one of the smallest medieval walled towns in Italy. And it is still a vibrant, functioning town. Granted, tourism makes if function. But it so amazing that people are still living in buildings nearly 2000 years old. The museum there was also very interesting. Lots of great exhibits for a museum of it's size and the opportunity to touchy-feely period items like chain mail and helmets that knights might have worn.

Nice and peaseful little town near Siena with few restourants,caffe bars, nice small galery and few interesting shops with hand made things. Nice square with old church, old houses-everything so charming. I didn want to go.... it was so relaksing...

Went there with much exitement built through the game assassins creed, of course l, its a much smaller 'city-if you will', than the game..

Still its a very nice place to include in the itineray, fantastic icecream shop up there, quiet, small, medieval and perfectly reserved..i would suggest it to fellow Tuscany-goers :)

Had a great experience walking the walls and enjoying the picturesque view. If you are an Assassins Creed fan then you must walk the walls , see the church and the bell tower.

It doesn't any get more authentic or easily explorable than little Montereggioni. Only about the size of 2 football fields in acreage - it still pleases greatly today just as it did for Dante with its mention in his 'Divine Comedy.' Completely ringed by medieval walls (which are climbable & walkable), with knight's gate entrance and centuries old buildings, plus it stands solitarily on a hilltop. Ample free parking below the walls & just a short 10-15 minute drive from Siena. Stop to explore, sip some wine or eat & savor this intact city that time forgot - but you won't ...
