Rent a scooter

We drove into Radda looking for frescoes and found them . . . and a lot more. What a charming village. The views are fabulous; the people are incredibly friendly and the frescoes are excellent.

Taste some wine

What could be more fun in the Chianti region than tasting wine?

Throughout Italy several times when we couldn't find a restaurant we liked, we went in for a wine degustation. They often serve an entire set of appetizers, one for each wine and for us, it's a great lunch.

Check the doors

It was not summer when we were there. It was a chilly day in late October but they had curtains over the doors instead of nice solid doors. They are very festive but didn't seem terribly practical.

The entire town was incredibly picturesque and the views over the surrounding valleys were spectacular.

    We are set to see Tuscany in the fall on a 10 day tour of Italy.

    I've been poring over Tuscany tips on VT, and this picture of the Vespas is one of the most intriguing that I've seen. They're like so many ripe tomatos lined up in a market stall, aren't they? Seriously, the Radda tourism board should use this picture.
