Radda in Chianti

Radda in Chianti is a small town in the heart of Tuscany’s wine region. A picturesque town, Radda is one of the most scenic destinations in the Chianti area. With a tumultuous history, Radda was home to the Chianti League HQ, the military movement founded in the 13th century by Florence in order to protect smaller territories from Siena. Radda welcomes tourists from all around the world for its history, charm, and wine estates.   

Head to the main square, Palazzo dei Podestà and take a step back in time with its dramatic coat of arms taking pride of place on the façade. A visit to the Church of San Niccolò is also a must – set above the square it has a Neo-Romanesque style. Take a walk around the town and admire the ancient walls and pretty squares. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around that serve the famous local Chianti wine. You may even be lucky enough to visit during Radda nel bicchiere (Radda in the glass) which is a Chianti wine tasting festival dedicated to good wine, we’ll cheers to that!

When to go

Tuscany is predominantly a summer destination, with the main tourist season generally running from April to October. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August, this is also when Tuscany is at its busiest. However, Tuscany also enjoys a mild climate in spring and autumn with temperatures rarely going beneath 20 degrees which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too. The coast has wonderful sea breezes and the hilltop towns are much cooler than the lower countryside villages. The best time to visit is during the quieter season, from April to June and September to October when the weather is good, prices are a bit lower and there are fewer crowds. There are many festivals and events throughout the year in Tuscany and Easter and Christmas are always busy.
