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... More

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... More

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.

This was such a fun way to share a bit of the rich history of the area with our 6 and 9 year old nephews. Exploring the fortress really allows the imagination to run. The lack of crowds and the quality of the restoration really made it feel like we stepped back in time. If you're traveling with or without... More

With its very cheap price(4€) and great view from the top of a scenic lovely Tuscan countryside this fortress is a magical place to relax and enjoy your visit in Tuscany. It is visible from literally everywhere and the view from the top of the fortress is accordingly stunning. What's more, the place breathes with history. The fortress contains also... More

Just what you would expect from an old fortress. Really stunning views from the top of the tower. There is also a little restaurant with a friendly owner. All in all it's worth to go here.

Real defensive capabilities, outstanding overlook of the surroundings, and a nice place for a lunch. If you arrive by car, don't leave it by the town or by the gates, drive all the way up - pariking is included in the price (4 euro if memory serves me).

We were drawn to Radicofani by the tower raising up above the skyline, and diverted our drive to go check it out. We were so happy that we did. The tour guide at the entry point (who was English speaking....so helpful) gave us the low-down of what to see in the castle, but then we were left to go explore... More
