Please don pin me down whether this is a chuch, dome or basilica. It is pretty - thats for sure! from the lawn around the building you have a nice view over the surrounding countryside. Also: you can park for free and walk up the hill to the historic city center in about 15 minutes. You will join the main... More

Imagine that you approach the beautiful Tempio de San Biagio from the Pienza/Chianciano side. You can park your car just in front of it, but you can also decide to drive on. Follow the road, leave ristorante La Grotta at your right hand and turn right. The road climbs a bit. Follow the Via di San Biagio and after a... More

After seeing it several times from different locations in Montepulciano we decided to finały go there. We went there about midnight, taking quite long stroll from city centre (it was good after having a huuuge Fiorentina :). The place is stunning.

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 .
