A short distance from Castiglione, the imposing fortress of the Rocca di Tentennano dominates the village of Rocca d'Orcia, rising up still today to guard over the Orcia valley below, where pilgrims, merchants, and travelers once made their way...more
Suggested duration: 2-3 hours
Near Rocca d'Orcia, 53023 Castiglione D'Orcia, Italy
Arrived too late to actually enter the fortress, and hence see the 360degree views from the top. However, there is a public pathway around a part of the base of the tower/fortress which is easily accessible & free. The views from the base of the...More
We did not go all the way to the Fortress of Tentennano from Bagno Vignoni, but even doing part of it was so nice. Not s single tourist, beautiful path, which starts near Osteria dell’Orcia and runs in the woods first and then opens up...More
We visited on a Thursday and had the Rocca d'Orcia (as it's also known) to ourselves! It's worth the effort to make a detour to the small village whose fortress can be seen for miles around, and then make the effort to climb to the...More
If you are in the area it is worth diverting to take a look at the Val d'Orcia, Monte Amiata and surrounds from this lofty vantage point. Tentennano, like Radicofani, can be seen from afar and the €3 entrance fee is well worth it. It...More

This was an unexpected treasure. You can climb to the castle roof with amazing panoramic views. The castle itself is beautifully kept and clearly well looked after. When we visited the castle was displaying Shakespeare-inspired artwork inside which was a lovely enhancement to the mood....More
Our hosts recommended us to go there as we were planning trip to Bagni San Filippo and it was really worth it. The fortress is small but monumental (30 minutes is enough to visit, ticket 3 EUR). You start to wonder how those guys in...More
My partner and I got married here on the 26th March 2016 and it was absolutely perfect. The views are spectacular and it was an honour and a privilege to be able to have the most important day of my life here. Grazie Castiglione d'Orcia.
