Well hello Day 3.
As we begin our morning after breakfast; we load the bus to go to our next destination in Radda. Off in the distance are the Ricasoli fortresses; historic castles dating back to the 12th century and the Ricasoli family. Lots of history here. We start our hike through the woods along a picturesque ridgeline with views of Radda in the distance and continue our trek with our final ascent into town.
We have lunch and I feel like a local, gathering with friends and talking of our day.
The afternoon is spent on our own for relaxation, a spa treatment, a swim in the pool or to explore the hotel and sip some chianti around the fireplace. We shop through the town.
This evening we enjoy a wine and balsamic vinegar tasting before dining at one of Radda’s restaurants.
