This place was not indicated in several guidebooks we used on our trip but we saw it on our map and said “Let’s go". So glad we did. Breathtaking views from the top. Historically very interesting. I would recommend going for the sheer beauty of...More

While a little off the beaten path it's definitely worth a visit to the Fortress not only for the spectacular views from up top (the valley and gorgeous Tuscan landscape seems to go for ever) but also for the restoration work that was done to...More

Arrived too late to actually enter the fortress, and hence see the 360degree views from the top. However, there is a public pathway around a part of the base of the tower/fortress which is easily accessible & free. The views from the base of the...More

We visited on a Thursday and had the Rocca d'Orcia (as it's also known) to ourselves! It's worth the effort to make a detour to the small village whose fortress can be seen for miles around, and then make the effort to climb to the...More

If you are in the area it is worth diverting to take a look at the Val d'Orcia, Monte Amiata and surrounds from this lofty vantage point. Tentennano, like Radicofani, can be seen from afar and the €3 entrance fee is well worth it. It...More

The Fortress is kept beautifully in this tiny village away from the noise of the city. The view over the Orcia Valley is priceless. If you are looking for a quiet moment away from the city, good wine and food and fresh air, you cant...More

This was an unexpected treasure. You can climb to the castle roof with amazing panoramic views. The castle itself is beautifully kept and clearly well looked after. When we visited the castle was displaying Shakespeare-inspired artwork inside which was a lovely enhancement to the mood....More

Our hosts recommended us to go there as we were planning trip to Bagni San Filippo and it was really worth it. The fortress is small but monumental (30 minutes is enough to visit, ticket 3 EUR). You start to wonder how those guys in...More
