A weekend in the Sienese countryside: from Monteriggioni to explore Colle Val d’Elsa, San Gimignano and Siena

Length: 2 giorni

Consigliato: individuals, families, groups

Type: Cultural itineraries

Situated just north of Siena, and on the western border of the Chianti region, Monteriggioni boats a particularly excellent position for discovering some of the most significant places in the countryside around Siena. For first-time visitors, we suggest a two-day itinerary, allowing you to get an overview of the various places and sites. The first day begins with a visit to the castle of Monteriggioni, with its instantly recognizable outer walls, mentioned by Dante. A few kilometers away stands the medieval borgo of Colle di Val D’Elsa, which boats an ancient tradition of paper-mills and crystal glassworks. From here, in about 20 minutes, you can reach the famous town of S. Gimignano. The second day is dedicated totally to Siena, the City of the Palio, a treasure-chest of medieval art and architecture.
