A door to the Middle-Ages
The intact town mentioned by Dante, its walls, its castle walkways
Located in the heart of Tuscany, Monteriggioni castle is maybe one of the best well-preserved medieval towns in Italy.
The imposing city walls run without any interruption on the top of the hill, giving to the visitor the same suggestion that inspired Dante to write the famous similitudine with the Inferno’s Giants: “[…] citazione della DC in inglese”. (Inf. XXXI, vv. 40-44).
Inspiring the same suggestions of the Past, Monteriggioni is a fully-fledged door to the Middle Ages, ideal location to walk through History.
