There are lots of stairs to get to the top of the brooding tower at the Radicofani fortezza, but the views are worth it! Don't be put off if you aren't up for a climb - even from the lower levels there are staggering views...More

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

We visited here from our base not far away in Sarteano. And we were so pleased we made the effort. It is a 12th/13th century fortress that has been in various hands of warring factions due to its strategic location. Drive as far as you...More
