“We are – writes Skyscanner about Radda – in the sublime Tuscan countryside, in Radda in Chianti, a small town perched on the hill that divides the Arbia and the Pesa valleys, guarded by mighty defensive walls. Its strategic position has given this town an historical importance and even if today it is no longer an important crossroads, we like to visit it because it fills the soul with pure Tuscan charm. Try the local delicacies and taste the finest red wines of the region”.
