About the tour

Monteriggioni appears from the top of a hill with its stone walls. One of the most memorable and recognizable villages in all of Italy, it seems that it has been inhabited since the tenth century BC. A true mirage for those who want to dive into the Middle Ages, the town is even mentioned by the greatest Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy: Inferno, Canto XXXI. It's a place that has remained incredibly intact even though it was built by the Siena Republic between 1213 and 1219 as a military outpost granting defense from Florence. We will discover this tiny place at the break of dawn, with no people around and you will be able to escort me on the first steps of my walk to Siena, like pilgrims used to do centuries ago on the way to Rome.


Meet Eli

Eli

Born and bred in Tuscany, like the majority of the locals she is very blunt! After working in tourism for several years she found her true vocation in being a tour guide, she often says "it's the only job that I could do for 18 years or more" She is very energetic and curious, loves meeting and interacting with different people as well as travelling the world. She has a very strong voice as she sang during her high school years and that's when the passion for opera started. Still there is something she can't resist too ... sweets and particularly gelato, something she would enjoy with her guests after a tour!

Amazing start of the day (end of the day for me). The landscapes are like in the movies, so surreal to see so much beauty and greenery.
