Great shops, awesome restaurants, beautiful architecture. It really is all that we thought a Tuscan town would be like, just beautiful.

We have spent 3 nights in a farm house in San Quirico Dorcia. It was a fantastic experience and we just regret that we have planned only 3 days instead of a full week.

This is Italy when it is best. A small and friendly town where you can stroll around and feel the atmosphere.

San Quirico is a perfect little Tuscan town. It includes many wonderful restaurants and very friendly people. There are also numerous hotels in this town...bursting with local flavor. Though not as touristy as other hilltop towns, this only adds to it's charm. It is in a perfect location to explore the surrounding Val d'Orcia and the great Tuscan towns nearby...from... More

San Quirico is one of those Italian hilltowns that is increasingly hard to find. Charming, quiet, uncrowded, peaceful and yet steeped in Italian history that dates to the Etruscan times. The food and wine of tuscany is legendary and SQ is no exception. There are a couple of really fine restaurants two of which have a Michelin ratings that we... More

I was on a planned hiking trip and this was one of the stops. It's a very interesting little place but you can pretty much see it in a few hours.

This was our fourth visit to Tuscany, and the first in ten years. So much has changed and become overcrowded, but San Quirico is still the quaint town it always has been. There are tourists there, but not in the mass amounts like in the other hill towns.

A beautiful ancient hill town with winding paved alleyways, towers, houses and churches all built of stone and brick and paint in lovely warm Tuscan colours - umber, brown, yellow, terracotta, dusky pink. We had lunch at a lovely restaurant the name of which escapes me but it has Jardin and Trattoria in it. We sat outside in their shady... More

Visited this little town early evening when there were lots of locals out walking and sitting around in the shade talking. We wandered around this Immaculate town soaking in the colours, of the rock the old wooden beams and ht view out over Tuscany.
