Montereggioni - Sept 21st pm


Perched on a hilltop near our B&B, is one of the best-preserved medieval walled towns in Italy. Virtually abandoned until 1966, it has been re-populated with about 200-300 people whose lives revolve around the burgeoning tourist trade. The walls are still intact and it has never fallen to enemies. Oddly, parking was relatively easy, and that may be due to the fact that there’s really nothing there. The town is best viewed from the Autostrade where it is impossible to stop and take a picture.
