Quiet and relaxing Old Town.

Peaceful, great value, lovely people. Away from the Tourist trail. If you love Nuvolari and the Mille Miglia you will be in petrol head heaven. A great place to eat and relax.

The town is located in the middle to get to everywhere and can be used as a strategic location to spend nights and make trips. Medival town- very clean, has restaurants - we had the best meal ever in one of them

Often overlooked by tourists, this is a place to go. Virtually untouched and unchanged. The streets are level and offer easy walking. It is small enough to walk and visit within 1 hour. Worth the stop!

Spent two days while walking the Via Francigena. Great town, full of narrow lanes and churches. The medieval walls and gardens make it a very interesting place for a day's wander, especially with the views over the surrounding countryside.

Driving on the outskirts of San Quirico you would not be blamed for not wishing to explore further but the town within the walls is so pretty with charming shops, restaurants and gardens. It well repays a wander.

Went there with the sole reason to complete the paperwork before getting married, but the village is fairly sizeable with a couple of very upmarket hotels, some cracking restaurants with views to die for. Very old gardens, churches and city walls too.

There are many beautiful villages, especially when you are at the SS 2 (or SR 2) from Siena to Rome, don't miss San Quirico d'Orcia and the Orto dei Leonini (typical italian garden), nice shops on the mainroad, ltlle restaurants.

Gorgeous hill town in Tuscany. We had a lovely lunch in a restaurant here. It is a lot less touristy than some of the other medieval towns in Tuscany. Worth a visit - have lunch and stroll around the town.

have a walk through the historic center - look in the rose garden and the park - drink a prosecco in one of the bars and feel good
