Consigliato: schools, individuals, families, groups

Note: for opening, ring: +39 339 6653161; +39 335 6651581

Type: On a trip with your whole class

For school groups, we recommend a visit to the two largest sites in the area, Abbadia Isola and Monteriggioni, which are connected by a lovely footpath. At Abbadia Isola, be sure to visit the Romanesque Church that once belonged to the Benedictine abbey of SS. Salvatore e Cirino. For several centuries, this was a stopping-off place for pilgrims travelling to Rome (for opening: +39 339 6653161; +39 335 6651581). To get to Monteriggioni, a good alternative to motor transport is a pleasant stroll along the panoramic route of the Via Francigena between the two sites, a different way to enjoy for yourself a route that is packed with history (length: about 4 km; level of difficulty: easy; duration: about 1 hr). Monteriggioni, a stopping-off place along the modern Via Francigena route between S. Gimignano and Siena, retains the features of the ancient medieval castle, almost intact, to be enjoyed by walking along the walkways along the top of the walls, and visiting Monteriggioni’s small “Arms and Armour” museum.
