Monteriggioni provides a sense of life within a walled medieval village.
The walls and towers circling this refuge are virtually intact.
The visual effect from a distance is astonishing, and the architecture is equally impressive.
There are few cars, making Monteriggioni a great place for children.
It also has a park for picnics, several restaurants and ice-cream shops and is a great stop during a return journey from Siena.
