Video: Palazzo Leopoldo & Radda in Chianti

Take a tour through the Palazzo Leopoldo Hotel, with beautiful views off the patio, lovely furniture, welcoming pool area, and a mouthwatering breakfast. Then, take a step outside into the town of Radda in Chianti, Italy, where charming restaurants, gelato, parks, sidewalks, and sunsets await. We loved our stay here!

Pictures: Day Three

On the third day of our trip, we continued our Italian adventure, leaving Rome (after eating our last delightful breakfast at the Hotel Cortina) and heading for Tuscany in a large Fiat van I call “the Death Cube.” On the way, we stopped by a gem of a city called “Civita di Bagnoregia.” It is sometimes called the “Dying City” since it is largely uninhabited and apparently after they built it, it started falling apart, making it unsafe. It was one of the most spectacular places we have ever been. We then headed to our hotel in Radda (in Chianti, Tuscany) called “Palazzo Leopoldo,” which was an old manor home turned hotel that is historic, charming, and has an amazing view nestled in the middle of Radda. We toured the town, watched the sunset, and ate a delicious dinner at Bar Dante.
