Prepare the senses to be overwhelmed by the magnificent castle tower overlooking the Val d'Orcia, the breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside at every point of the compass, and the unique historical streets of the medieval village of Radicofani.

Great views for Val d'Orcia and Monte Amiata. Well renovated tower with tarrace on the top. Worth spending few euros. I suggest to read about a tuscan warrior who stayed ther in Middle Ages.

Fantastic views over the Val D'Orcia, across to Monte Amiata, with views to Montalcino and Pienza, and everything in between. We could see this castle standing atop the hillside wherever we drove and decided we had to see what it was. We were not disappointed...More

The Fortezza has imposing fortifications and a nice pathway skirting the internal perimeter walls. Good views over the city and Tuscany.

We've been here several times with our kids. The tower is fun to climb, the views are splendid over Amiata and val d'Orcia. The ruins around can be explored as well. Recently the new renters have cleared some trees therefore opening the views even more....More
