Radicofani, Tuscany, Italy

A great free place to park a motorhome near the hilltop village of Radicofani.  Notwithstanding the super views of the castle, village and Tuscan countryside there is also water and waste disposal on site.  The benefit of this is that it will bring motorhome tourists to this lovely spot which is located to the south of Siena.

The village has a population of just over 1,000 people and boasts a castle which dates back to at least 978CE when it was first documented.   The hill on which the castle stands is at 896 metres and offers marvellous vistas in every direction.  It has two lines of walls: the external one has a pentagonal shape, while the inner one is triangular, with three ruined towers at each corner and a keep.  

Also notable is the Romanesque church of San Pietro, with a nave, housing some works by Andrea della Robbia, Benedetto Buglioni and Santi Buglioni. Also by della Robbia is the precious Madonna with Saints at the high altar of the church of Sant'Agata.
