The scenery here is almost a cliche it is beautiful, and typical of all the photos I had seen of Tuscany. Little hill top towns around every bend.

Visiting Tuscany? San Quirico is well worth an overnight stop. Perfect location. Quiet. Friendly and typically Tuscan, set on a hillside with a walled perimeter. Lovely restaurants and a few shops. We stayed at the Hotel Palazzo del Capitano, which I would recommend,.

I loved this cute little village on top of a hill with gorgeous scenery. We went to several restaurants and shops while on a one week tour. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful place!

A breathtaking, lovely town. Quaint, beautiful, clean, friendly. Fun to do the "walk about" late afternoon/early evening before dinner - which you know will be lovely. Also has a local brewery to add to the lovely local wines.

Loved this town and areas. Quiet for this time of year but if you just want to chill for a day come here. Most shops closed but there is still things to see & do.

San Quirico d´Orcia lies in the most breathtaking, scenery you can imagine. It is like you are inside the a travel guidebook picture. San Quirico itself is a lovely town, small with nice historical features, good restaurants, and really great icecream.

Small, quiet, friendly and picturesque. Streets very small, if my rental car had another coat of paint it would not have fit through the main entrance to town. Parking is outside the walls which requiring walking 3-6 blocks to get to the car. Good central location for exploring the wine areas of Montalcino and Montepulciano.
