This is a remarkable little town, in southern Tuscany, very close to the most typical Tuscan landscapes you can imagine. The old town has the classical narrow streets and old churches but the main street is full of shops and restaurants. There are many luxurious shops selling all the famous Tuscan products, food and wine in particular. The main church... More

If you are going to Tuscany be sure to spend at least one morning or afternoon in San Quirico. Its historical center is very small and yet so charming, it is really worth the visit. It is also a very good place to stay if you are planning on going to Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino.

We stayed at this place for 3 days, it was way too much. I'm pretty sure it's set up to be a stop by town for tour groups - it looks very cute and nice but it feels so plastic, we walked from the bus which was in the normal neighbourhood to the inside tourist town of "Quirico d'Orcia" and... More

We visited several towns in Tuscany, Umbria, and Cinque Terre on a 2 week anniversary trip, but this stop was our favorite. We stopped to walk through town and have lunch, but wished we could have stayed longer. This small town had beautiful scenery, charming shops and restaurants around every corner. If we return to the area, we will be... More

We were staying in a castle 30 minutes away and our hostess recommended a couple of restaurants in San Quirico d'Orcia. It appeared to be fair sized with a pretty large residential area (by Tuscan small town standards). We parked and walked into the lively old town center where many shops and restaurants were located. We found the town rather... More

Pillars tied in knots, sea-monsters and sirens, a riot of romanesque quirkiness. And that's just the Collegiata di Sant'Agata. The Palazzo Chigi has some fine rooms with partially restored frescoes and ceilings, and the town itself is charming, a bit touristy now but that's the way it has to be. There are tiny streets, a formal public garden sometimes used... More

Completely charming and authentic village lesser known and appreciated than nearby Pienza or Montalcino. However we love it for its quiet and lovely streets and the Horti Gardens. Wonderful restaurant for lunch or dinner Da Ciacco.

We stopped in San Quirico during our Val d'Orcia drive, and it was a sweet little place. We had lunch here, wandered a bit, then had some gelato. Without lunch, I'd recommend about an hour here.

This is a beautiful old town that is on an old long distance walking route to Rome ( like the Camino de Santiago in Spain). It's also on the Mile Migle Route and the old cars drive right through the town every year. Well worth a visit, and it's possible to find affordable accommodation in the old town. It is... More
