A beautiful castle in an out of the way area. Definitely not on the main tourist trail but well worth the visit. Stunning views of the surrounding area from a top the tower.

Not too far from Siena is a medieval hilltop town called Radicofani offering 360 degree views from the fortress known as the Castle of Ghino di Taco. For a mere 4,00 euro, you can visit this historic site, which was first documented in the year 978. The massive structure sits at the hill's peak, which is 896 meters (2940 feet). On a clear day, you can see the Mediterranean Sea from the ramparts. During season, there is a small cafe that serves reasonably priced drinks and lunches with a million dollar view.

Historical place. Ghino di Tacco , sort of medieval italian robin hood, was living this place or close. Gorgeous sightseeing

5 Euros to get in. A few nice exhibits but what you really want to see are the views. Looking north you can see across the mountains to Tuscany and the Val-de-Elsa. Looking south you can see all the way to Aquapendente and almost to the shores of Bolsena. There are powerful winds so you take a peek and then duck down behind the battlements to take a breath and then repeat. Oh, and its lots of fun to look at the town below. There are also some tunnels in the fort and a nice bar. I've been here twice and they've been faithfully restoring it.

An ancient fortress on a volcanic plug, visible for miles around. Stunning Tuscan views from the top of the tower. You can drive right up to it, but we decided to walk up from the village.
At the foot of the castle is a chalet where we had an excellent meal of fresh ravioli and red wine. No menu, no prices, just a total at the end. That's how it used to be, our B&B told us. We liked the wine so much, we took some back with us in a water bottle the owner filled for us.
