A really old and lovingly restored fortress/castle absolutely steeped in history. It is visible from many towns in the area and as such, affords absolutely brilliant views of the Val d'Orcia. It is not for the faint hearted or the unfit as there are many...More

This to me is a must see if in Tuscany- the Fortress/Castle is incredibly preserved; the views unparalleled, and the Casa Tonietti Restaurant is a must-go-to on its own. It is the best restaurant with a view I have been to.

Located in the south of Val d'Orcia this castle is simply amazing for the sorround and above all for the view which dominates the valley. Amazing! To be visited

This was the closest town to our rental villa. An adorable town. This fort is worth the climb. Even if you just drive up to the base. The restaurant at the fort is amazing.

We visited the Radicofani fortress, which gives spectacular views over this part of Tuscany. You can drive the whole way up the the fortress, which is definitely worth a visit. There is also a restaurant at the top serving home made pasta.

The best castle/fortress in Italy. Stunning views from all angles. Incredible history. Not overrun by tourist. Fantastic bar/cafe at foot of the fortress.
