We visited the Fort at Radicofani, entry was €4 per adult which included a guide booklet in English. The site has been set up with plenty of information to tell you about the history of the fort. The views from the grounds and top of...More

We visited this amazing place by accident while driving around the beautiful Val d'orcia. We saw the tower of the fortress from miles away (it looked like something from Lord of the Rings from afar!) We didn't realise we could go all the way up...More

Of all the forts we visited in Tuscany this was easily the best, made by the sumptuous 360 degree views from atop the reconstructed tower. The tower is high and the climb to the top is long has many steps, but there’s a chance to...More

Almost anywhere you are in the Val d’Orcia you can see the tower of the Fortezza looming above you. The reverse is true, when you are up there you can see for miles. Lots of fascinating history here, only snag is that it is not...More

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'd visited the Fortezza at Radicofani on a previous trip to Tuscany - it has changed a bit. There were lots more people there (might have been because it was a Saturday) and the grounds of the Fortezza itself had been cleared with a bar...More

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.
