Radicofani

Radicofani is marked out by the soaring tower of its great citadel. It’s at least 1,000 years old and once featured as an important defensive barrier between the Pope’s territory and Tuscany. However, the most romantic tale of the castle comes with Ghino di Tacco. He’s a mysterious, swashbuckling figure who’s hailed as the Italian Robin Hood. The so-called brigante buono (the good brigand) holed up in Radicofani’s keep while he raided nearby towns and villages, always leaving his victims something to survive on. Beneath his onetime base, you can wander handsome Radicofani itself, where stone-faced cottages spill onto flower-strewn squares.
