What other tourists will I find in Chianti?

You will find very few tourists from all over the world. Read for more info...

Radda in Chianti is one of those small Tuscan villages that seems to be overlooked for more vibrant towns like San Gimignano or Greve.  The town is made up of local people who support the area's wine making business.  It hasn't been overrun by souvenir and ceramic shops, nor the proverbial wine tasting rooms. Radda in Chianti does, however, gain attention from those who seek out undeniably stunning views of the Chianti region, and a taste of local charm and character.

Radda in Chianti is deep in the hills of central Tuscany. There are no major freeways running near it, and the closest train station is 45 minutes away. This is why you won't see crowds of foreigners with cameras. You won't see big groups of tourists, and you won't see signage all over town in English.

No cars are allowed into the ancient town so the only noise you may have in the late night is the sound of a distant thunderstorm.
