We stopped at this small town which is noted for its ancient fortified walls on a day trip from Florence to Siena. It was studded with wine shops. We were in the Chianti region of Italy after all. The surrounding scenery was spectacular.
We got to visit 5 hilltowns in Tuscany, all different in the experience they offered. Monteriggioni was the smallest of the towns we visited but it gave a very good perspective of a walled town which was more difficult to see in the larger towns...More
Pleasant hilltop town. Several restaurants and a few shops as well as the medieval walls. There is a lovely small church open for viewing. Lots of parking. To exit parking you have to walk out of the parking lot then back to your car then...More
It's a short climb to the wall, and the views of the inside city and outer countryside are well worth the small effort and the modest price. Be aware that there are two sections to the wall, which must be accessed from separate points.

There are no "tours" per se. It's an open little town that would welcome a visit. Despite its size, it is a real town and doesn't treat itself like an attraction. There is parking in the main square and other locations. Wander around, walk into the little store, the church, and see other areas. Quite a treat, actually.
