A must for those who decide to come to Monteriggioni is the visit to the walkways on the castle walls. From the top of the defensive wall you can admire the splendid surrounding countryside towards the Chianti and the Valdelsa and enjoy an unusual view of the village.
The museum houses faithful reproductions of medieval and Renaissance weapons and armor. Furthermore, accurate models illustrate means and siege techniques in vogue at the same time.
Each room is dedicated to a specific moment in the history of Monteriggioni, within which the exhibits are contextualised.
Unusual as appreciated by the majority of the public is the ability to handle and wear some weapons and parts of armor, located in special areas of the museum. Some explanatory panels and an easy multilingual audio guide accompany the visitor in this brief but intense immersion in history.
