My husband who is a big churchlover and have seen hundreds was stunned at this one just outside the city. The ceeling is really something, no fee and no tourists if you come early (before 10 a.m.). Also easy to park. A church - gem !

It can be seen from afar, at the bottom of Montepulciano. The drive in, is cypress lined. Beautiful and relatively simple architecture, inside and out. Grounds are small but lovely. Can walk down to it from town but remember it's uphill on the return! Great restaurant right across the parking lot shared with the Tempio. Lovely stop if you are... More

Stark, yet stately and majestic church. Very large and very plain. San Biagio is well worth a quick visit when in Montepulciano. The inside of the church is very simple yet very majestic. The views from the grounds are beautifu. The view of San Biagio from the terraces above in Montepulciano are even better. Great photo opps!

It's a strenuous walk down and back to this gorgeous church, but you have stunning views along the way.

try to go on a weekday, and not when students are out of school. We were there on a day that when there were teenagers EVERYWHERE. They were throwing balls, playing music, etc. If you time it better than we did, then you'll have a lovely spot for a picnic while you gaze at the lovely Tuscan countryside!!!

A church on lawn, outside the town center? Not often seen anywhere. I guess the biggest attraction here are the architecture and the location. Inside there is mostly lots of empty space. As a curiosity, this is worth a stop.

You really notice this church when visiting the area as it is quite large so I was anxious to see inside. I was quite disappointed with the modest interior .

A short distance outside Montepulciano, this stunning church is located at the end of a lovely drive lined with trees. Worth an hour of anyone's time to visit.

The majestic cypress trees outlining your approach to this beautiful church is breathtaking. We attended a concert held on Friday evening @ 18:00-19:00. The interior of this church is adorned with a beautiful Michelangelo stain glass windows and magnificent marble statues. Definitely worth a visit. La Grotta restaurant is conveniently located across the street. We finished our evening with a... More

The church built in the early 1500’s is nestled at the foot of the hill town of Montepulciano. Its large dome is visible from miles off, if you walk toward the town. Inside there is a stained glass window above the magnificent altar, created by Michelangelo. Do not miss the opportunity to visit if in Tuscany.
