This was our fourth visit to Tuscany, and the first in ten years. So much has changed and become overcrowded, but San Quirico is still the quaint town it always has been. There are tourists there, but not in the mass amounts like in the other hill towns.

A beautiful ancient hill town with winding paved alleyways, towers, houses and churches all built of stone and brick and paint in lovely warm Tuscan colours - umber, brown, yellow, terracotta, dusky pink. We had lunch at a lovely restaurant the name of which escapes me but it has Jardin and Trattoria in it. We sat outside in their shady... More

this is an amazing historic walled town in the Orcia valley. Its lovely streets have good restaurants and shops. It was great to walk around the walls and see the view of the rolling hills of Tuscany.

This is a lovely Tuscan hill town. not as 'touristy' or crowded as others such as montepulciano. short drive from Pienza- another lovely place. Easy free parking just outside of town with a short walk into town. Beautiful garden to visit. Churches as well. small shops with very friendly shopkeepers.

Give a walk in the city and see historical constructions and the Trabucco (old "catapulta"). Fantastic city !

with walls, very old church, lovely street to stay and see the surrounding area, with Sienna, Montalcino and the simple but very spiritual abbey of Sant'Antimo with its long history of being a pilgrimage. End of June there are festivities on the occasion of Barbarossa's visit around 1166...

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,.
