beautiful town, still genuine Tuscany

Lovely small town, where you get the old genuine feeling of Tuscany, near Montepulciano and Montalcino for excellent red wines!!! Plus of course near Siena

Discovery of places that you knew nothing about -- that's the reason to drive in Tuscany. On this day we found both San Quirico and Acquapendente, places on the pilgrim's tour of the middle ages. San Quirico is a beautiful little town, a place to stop and walk and experience a tiny bit of real Italy. Lovely.

Large sections of the original wall, still intact so you can get a sense of what living here in middle ages was like. Large and nice garden for a stroll. Couple of interesting and old churches. Main street with some nice shops and cafes.

It is a pretty town and we went during the week so not many tourists. The buildings have a slight pink colour. But it's a little boring. If wandering old towns is your thing you will love it but for me it was missing life, passion - it was a little dead. Perhaps weekends are better.

Beautiful charming town located in the heart of Tuscany. The people are warm and welcoming and there are many amazing Wineries minutes away. Great restaurants, cute shops and plenty of historical sites close by. Will definitely be back!!

Wonderful town with much to see considering its small size. Most of the things though are outside, so pick a pretty day for a visit. The gardens are the highlight as well as just walking through the town.

San Quirico is about mid-way between Montalcino and Montepulciano, and has good proximity to several of the iconic photographic opportunities along the road between these tow villages. San Quirico is blessed with low tourism and has an adequate number of dining options. I did not find it a beautiful or compelling city, indeed I found it dull and lacking in... More

This is a compact clean town village with roman walls and enough small shops and a few bars. Good and central for exploring. being on a hill top there was a nice breeze. There was a very nice clean well stocked supermarket.

We got to San Quirico from Montalcino, and was on my itenary. I`ve seen few pictures of it and read few articles about the little town long before I got to Tuscany. How many times I thought about that narrow street leading to the church and the well in front of it, and here I am standing and looking at... More

This lovely small "village" was close to our hotel so was a must visit and we were not disappointed. Picture perfect traffic free lane though the heart, lovely old garden, beautiful stone walls still standing guard. There is a little grocery store right in the heart that has a fun selection of pasta and other items to take home.
