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!

Here are the highlights from our tour of the Barone Ricasoli Castle in Chianti as well as dinner featuring their wines. Apparently, Barone Ricasoli invented Chianti wine, so cheers to him! Look out for beautiful views of Tuscany from the castle wall, a cannon-ball dented side of the castle, and a family crypt.

On Day Four, we explored the little Italian towns surrounding Radda in the region of Chianti. It was picturesque, charming, and oh-so-scenic: churches, local produce, restaurants, shops, fountains, and a cute little puppy. There’s also some footage of our scoot-scoots at the end!

We took our time eating a delicious breakfast at Palazzo Leopoldo, got a late start, and decided to drive to neighboring towns. First was Castellina de Chianti, which we loved; we ate in Greve, which was not as scenic as Castellini; then we ended in Panzono, which had a cool church and scenic overlooks. In the evening, we toured the Baron Ricasoli Castle in Gaiole, where Chianti wine was invented. There, we ate dinner with a wine tasting.
