Beautiful church near Montepulciano

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.

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 .

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.

Take the time to wander down to this magnificent church. There is a Michelangelo glass mosaic above the altar, as well as the only painting of Mary with a smile on her face. I'm so glad they are renovating this wonderfully historic place of worship. Parking is right in front and no stairs.

I agree with reviewers in recommending a visit to this beautiful historic church! A recent reviewer felt this church was too far from Montepulciano to walk. It is one kilometer from Montepulciano. In good weather for those who are able this is a very nice ( scenic)10 minute walk. It is worth noting that San Biagio was built to house... More

This lovely basilica, built in 1518, provided the inspiration for the design of St Peter's in Rome. It's perfect symmetry and soaring dome is magnificent and the level of decoration inside lovely but classical and reasonably subdued - a welcome change from most of the hyper-baroque churches through Italy! Well worth a visit.

No matter where you walk in Montepulciano, at the bottom of the hill you overlook this beautiful church and its fantastic domed roof. A short walk downhill from the town, brings you through an avenue of trees leading you to the church itself. Well worth a visit.

We were really looking forward to see the temple. After navigating the step hills and alleys in Montepulciano we finally arrived to find the area over taken by young kids on holiday and builders! The building was closed to the public for renovation - very disappointing!
