Radda in Chianti è un comune italiano di 1 577 abitanti della provincia di Siena in Toscana. Wikipedia
Together with Castellina, Radda is the most attractive of all Chianti‘s small towns and one of the best places to visit in this area.
It had a glorious past that put it at the centre of the area’s tumultuous history. Radda in Chianti was in fact the headquarters of the Chianti League, the military-administrative league founded by Florence in the 13th century to protect these territories from Siena’s clutches.

Castelnuovo Berardenga è un comune italiano di 9 056 abitanti della provincia di Siena in Toscana. È situato a circa 20 km dal capoluogo su un colle tra il torrente Malena e il fiume Ombrone. Wikipedia

Castelnuovo Berardenga sits on the southern border of the Chianti, somewhat overshadowed by Siena. For better or worse, its fortunes have always been tied to Siena. In 1555 this Sienese stronghold lost its encircling walls when Siena was defeated by the Florentine-led Medici Grand Duchy. Today, Castelnuovo is special for its peaceful atmosphere and sense of an authentic Tuscan style of living. The low-key charms include a couple of minor churches and a clocktower, remodelled from the original fortifications.
Admire Vicolo dell'Arco, with its steep stone staircase and decorative arch. Such charms won’t detain you for long but it’s a soothing spot for contemplating the slow pace of life outside bigger Tuscan towns. In fact, Castelnuovo is a designated Città Slow for this reason. Beyond this former stronghold are a cluster of minor villas and wine estates. Essentially, treat Castelnuovo as a stepping stone to Siena and the southern Chianti.
