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.

Far less touristy than most of the towns in the area, was great visiting on a Saturday when all the locals were out shopping in the market and eating in the restaurants. The streets are beautiful but the crowning glory is the garden by the town wall - incredibly atmospheric place with statues and grass mazes.

We rode bikes here from Pienza, the perfect Renaissance town, to find this perfect medieval hill town. Quiet and charming during parts of the day the place can seem deserted, but in the early evening the passeggiata starts and you see many grey haired inhabitants

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.
