From Monteriggioni follow the ancient Via Massetana, the road which connects Siena to the coast, and you will come to San Galgano, a fascinating Cistercian Abbey surrounded by uncontaminated nature and which houses the legendary “Sword in the Stone”.
The Abbey of Sant’Antimo is not far from Montalcino: visit the Romanesque monastic complex and listen to the present day monks, who still live in this small community, singing their Gregorian chants in Latin.
The Castle of Brolio, made of “pietra serena” stone and bricks, is surrounded by an Italian garden, a romantic parkland and the vineyards of the estate “Barone Ricasoli”.
South of Siena is the remarkable territory of the Sienese Crete and the Abbey of Monte Oliveto.
Hotel Monteriggioni organises various types of excursions, in collaboration with local guides, leaving either from Monteriggioni or other historic towns in the province of Siena.
