The Palazzo is only one of several quaint, historical buildings in this beautiful town. The town is not big and the lovely alleys and the tiny square can be viewed in little over an hour. A must if one is in the area.

Radda had many good shops, wine tasting cellars, and panaramic views. Good delicatessens with local saugage, meats, wine, bread, olives, olive oil, balsamic vinegar. We bought these items for our 'late suppers'.
