Welcome to Italy in Photos, where we invite you to explore the beauty of Monteriggioni a captivating city in Tuscany: – Monteriggioni is a captivating town in Tuscany, Italy, that preserves its medieval charm and history. It is situated on a hill, surrounded by a circular wall with 14 towers. The wall was built by the Sienese in the 13th century as a defensive fortress against the Florentines. The town has remained almost unchanged since then and offers a glimpse of the past. Dante Alighieri mentioned Monteriggioni in his Divine Comedy, comparing its towers to the giants around the inferno. Monteriggioni has a small but charming historic centre, where you can walk along the cobblestone streets and admire the stone houses and churches. The main square, Piazza Roma, is the heart of the town, where you can see the Town Hall, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, and the Museum of Medieval Armours and Weapons. You can also climb up the wall and enjoy a panoramic view of the Tuscan countryside. Monteriggioni is not only a historical treasure, but also a cultural and gastronomic destination. The town hosts several events throughout the year, such as the Medieval Festival in July, when the town comes alive with music, shows, and costumes. You can also taste the local specialties, such as the pappardelle with wild boar sauce, the ribollita soup, and the cantucci biscuits. And of course, you can sip the excellent wine produced in the nearby vineyards, such as the Chianti Classico or the Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Monteriggioni is a town that will enchant you with its beauty, atmosphere, and tradition. It is a perfect place to experience the authentic Tuscan spirit.
