Went to Volpaia for dinner at Ristorate La Bottega which was wonderful. Had a short walk around and the small village is very charming. Not much to unless you are going there to eat.

we enjoyed our overnight stay in the village. The restaurants were great family run spots. The reserve wine tasting was fun. We enjoyed seeing the wine crush in action. We were disappointed that we missed out on the olive oil. We stayed in the Volpaia...More

The drive from Radda up to the quiet medieval hamlet of Volpaia is quite steep and windy, but it is very picturesque and worth the short detour. There is a large car park behind the restaurant. take a stroll round the streets (it won't take...More

Yes there is a place called Bar Ucci that is casual and nice place to have lunch or a drink inside or out. The owners and staff are very friendly. Since valpaia is a Hamlet you won't get lost and can't miss it. The winery... More

Greve for a Week (8 Replies)
We are staying in Greve the first week of September.. This will be our 5th trip to the area. We have been to many villages in the past (Florence, Lucca, Siena, S. Gimignano, Assisi, Volpaia, Radda, Castellina, Montepulciano, Pienza, Orvieto, Montalcino, and Montefioralle). It goes without saying, these 2 regions are our favorite. Now, we would like to explore less traveled villages, similar to Montefioralle. We enjoy visiting churches, restaurants, and wineries, as well as visiting...More

Place for lunch in Radda (10 Replies)
We will be coming from Rome to Volpaia where we have rented a villa. We would like to stop in Radda to buy some groceries and eat lunch. All our luggage will be in the van. Anyone know of a place near Radda or in it where we could get some lunch and also be able to see our van? Thanks!!!!

There is a pizzeria right on the road with a little veranda with plastic chairs out front. Very informal but excellent pizza - the best we had in our tour of Italy...and trust me, we ate a LOT of pizza. You will be able to see your car from there if you can park near it. Then again, I doubt there is much of a crime problem in Radda. Lots of cars are parked just below the city walls. If you really are stressed you could buy groceries from the coop in town and have a pinic on the benches...More

Pretaccione in Chianti (0 Replies)
Just returned from a blissful week in Il Fornaio at Pretaccione north of Siena about 17 Km. Il Fornaio is one of the smaller units in this small restored set of farm buildings. If you are after art and culture it will not be your cup of tea. It is 17 KM to Siena and 3 dirt roads and there is little mobile or internet signal. But if you want a quiet and gorgeous base for exploring Chianti- this is the place. I think Il Fornaio is one of the smaller units. 1 BR with a living space and...More
