What you'll do

We will meet near Monteriggioni (about 20 minutes drive from Siena), a unique castle surrounded by beautiful countryside, which has been playing a basic role in the regional history. Sitting in front of a good cappuccino, we’ll decide our route between a range of possible hikes (from 3 to 8 km) to explore the Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrim road which leads to the Vatican city. The area is fulfilled with amazing views, nature, history and local traditions. After the hike in the countryside we will conquer the castle, but more is yet to come: walk along the top of the walls and try medieval weapons in the historic museum! I will give you some good tips for the rest of your day in Monteriggioni and the surrounding area.

Where you'll be

Meeting point is Bar dell'Orso, Via Cassia Nord 23 Monteriggioni (make sure your gps/phone can find the Bar location, which is next to the highway exit "Monteriggioni"). There is a car park opposite the Bar (if you don't have a car, ask me how to get there). We will hike through the beautiful countryside up to the castle of Monteriggioni, where we'll enjoy a unique walk on the walls! ...and maybe an artisan gelato ;)
