Radda in Chianti Vacation Packages
Radda in Chianti is nestled behind large defensive walls on a forested hilltop. With old narrow streets, towers, stone façades, small piazzas and fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside, there are many reasons to visit the medieval town. See ancient buildings and important religious relics or taste some of the region’s renowned wines.
The small town is filled with historical sites and can easily be explored on foot. In the main square, view the 15th-century Palazzo del Podestà, which serves as the town hall. The façade is adorned with numerous coats of arms. Across from the palazzo is the Church of San Niccolò (Propositura di San Niccolò). It is thought to date back to the 13th century, but much of the original building was destroyed during World War II. Explore the church’s interior to see an ancient wooden crucifix. In the square fronting the church is a beautiful old fountain.
Continue your tour of the hilltop town along medieval passageways, walking by the old defensive walls and through tunnels. Be sure to pause every now and then to take in the beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. One of the other principal attractions here is the Ice House of the Grand Duke. The structure was built toward the end of the 19th century to store ice.

This former Franciscan monastery is open to the public from April to October for wine courses. The venue also hosts cooking shows and concerts, as well as a wine shop and a museum.
