We got here not knowing what to expect. At the top of this hill, another wonder of Tuscany. There is plenty to see: churches, garden, old town street etc and a good few spots to stop by for food or drink. I really like this place .

San Quirico d'Orcia is one of the most beautiful places with some of the warmest people of anyplace we have visited. There are, per capita, more spectacular restaurants and more great wineries within 15 miles than any other place I have visited. You will feel a peace and joy that is unparalleled. Make this town, high on a hill in... More

This place was meant to be a pit stop on our cycle from Montalcino round the long way to Bagno Vignoni, taking in one or two other places. And to be honest it wowed us. An amazing set of town walls and several beautiful gates (including the robust and very old porta dei cappucini) with two beautiful Romanesque churches and... More

Take the time to either visit or better still stay in San Quirico. It is a sleepy town that does not shout about itself, it is just what it is. It lives in the shadow of Pienza, Montalcino and Siena and was first mentioned in hisotical documents 712AD Truscan times. It is on the Pilgrimage walk to Rome. Genuine locals... More

This is an ideal place to stop by for a few days. The quaint little town is fun to explore, and the landscapes surrounding it is enchanting and breathtaking.

This village is alive and lovely. It is not a fake tourist trap. We have been there for dinner multiple times. There are several great restaurants. The Architecture and Orti Leonini are beautiful, the road to get there is spectacular. And the local ice cream parlor is a temple for gelato lovers. I would retire there.

Ideal for exploring the Montalcino and Montepulciano vineyards. Beautiful scenery and close to all the highlights of 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.
