We visited San Biagio while on a long walk around Montepulciano. I'm not a "church person" but this was an exception. Really dramatic and the audio tour is complete and clear. If you're near Montepulciano...it's a must.

I visited this church in September while staying in the village of Montepulciano. It is a short walk down the hill to the church. Admission to the church is 3.50 euros but includes a very informative audio tour. I sat in a pew listening and...More

Lovely church, beautiful architecture. It does still have services so best to check before you set off. Plenty of free parking. You can stand in the centre of the church and clap your hands, and you get many echoes that cannot be heard by anyone...More

3.50 euros admission fee also gives you the head phone commentary on this pretty little cross shaped temple designed by Antonio da Sangallo. It is situated outside the city walls so there is easy parking. Go about lunch time before any coaches arrive.

Construction on the Renaissance Greek cross architectural style church began in 1518, merely 17 years after Michelangelo unveiled the incredible “David” sculpture. It was designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder. The same plan, based on Brunelleschi’s works, was used for the Bramante-Michelangelo design for...More

Located at the bottom of the hill from the main town square in Montepulciano. It's well worth the short walk down the hill to take the self guided tour. A beautiful setting with great history.....and the acoustics are tremendous!
