this is an amazing historic walled town in the Orcia valley. Its lovely streets have good restaurants and shops.

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.

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,.

I loved this cute little village on top of a hill with gorgeous scenery. We went to several restaurants and shops while on a one week tour. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful place!
