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.

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.

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...More
