There is no shortage of incredible and picturesque villages and towns in Tuscany but one of the most charming is #Radicondoli in the Province of #Siena. Located about 25km southwest of Siena and about 60km southwest of Florence . This pretty, millennia-old walled town is perched on a hilltop with panoramic views over the rolling hills of the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
With cobblestone streets, a close-knit community, a delicious locally-sourced local cuisine and sustainable lifestyle, it is home to less than a thousand people and is an idyllic little spot, a world away from tourist attractions and crowds.
Surrounding the town are olive groves, vineyards and fields that are rich with produce and these locally grown products are sold in the community co-op, while the local wines are sold from the vineyards themselves and in shops in the area. In the town's restaurants, you will find a cuisine that makes use of the freshest and most delicious ingredients, as a result, such as hand-pressed olive oils, grains, fresh and cured meats, artisanal cheeses, and mushrooms and herbs foraged in nearby forests.
The pretty streets of the town are home to several lovely churches, an impressive fortified castle, and a famous music school that plays host to concerts and plays. During August, there is also a large music, dance and theatre festival that takes place in the town. If you are more interested in exploring the great outdoors, the region is famous for hiking and mountain biking and it is the most beautiful and scenic place to spend time relaxing and unwinding.
While there are not endless things to see and do in this town, it is a very lovely gem and the perfect corner of #Tuscany in which to spend some time and get well and truly away from your day-to-day life.
