The Walled Castle of Monteriggioni in Tuscany

Spending a day in Florence in the summer can get to you because it is hot and crowded. Getting away from the crowds is essential I think. Another great trip from Florence is to the town of Monteriggioni.

The walled town of Monteriggioni is a stunner and one that shouldn’t be missed. Don’t relate it’s size to it’s popularity.

The town has an adorable piazza with a Romanesque styled church and a toursim office. Of course there is a Bar and a ristorante too.
Ristorante Il Posso sits opposite the Bar and is quite famous! I loved the Tuscan exteriors, great wine options and amazing Tuscan food (their steak is wow)!

Ciao

Monteriggioni definitely has a alluring landscape and is a quaint spot to get away from city life.
How to reach:
Monteriggioni can be reached best by a car/bus if you are coming from Siena, Pisa or Florence. There are also several tours from Florence. If you take a tour from Florence, Monteriggioni is usually last stop.
