Monteriggioni and its Round City Walls
As you approach Monteriggioni
you feel like you are travelling back in time. The small town, whose distinctive feature is its elliptical city walls soared by 14 towers, is set atop a hillock. Only two access gates (Porta Romea and Porta San Giovanni) open into the walls, one opposite the other.
Therefore, if you are looking an the accommodation in the countryside for your holidays in Siena, why do not you take a look at the ads for holiday rentals in Monteriggioni ?
Mentioned by Dante in his Divine Comedy
, Monteriggioni was for a long time the object of a struggle between Florence and Siena
, like many other towns in this corner of Tuscany. It was only in 1554 that Florence definitively conquered it.
If you are spending your holidays in Tuscany between the end of June and the beginning of July, you can participate in the historical re-enactment of this event. In the first two weekends of July in Monteriggioni takes place the Festa Medievale
and the castle teems with knights, minstrels, jousts, jugglers and musicians. During the festival, all transactions are made in "grossi", a special currency that replaces the euro inside Monteriggioni city walls.
If you are looking for a holiday house, why do not you rent a farmhouse or an apartment in a holiday farm in the province of Siena, on the hills that overlook Monteriggioni
