The start from Monteriggioni to San Gimignano is just over one kilometer.

  • San Gimignano (25 kilometers) and Volterra (40 kilometers) with their competing medieval towers, Valdorcia (38 kilometers) and its surreal Tuscan landscapes, Pienza (85 kilometers), San Galgano (39 kilometers) famous for the prophecy of the sword in the stone and Arezzo (85 kilometers) where you can find beautiful alfresco from Piero Della Francesca
