We were unable to go inside as they did not open that day. However, the grounds and the building are very picturesque. Catch this building at sunset and it really lights up. Going to Montepulciano...must stop and seet.

Tempio di San Biagio is in a beautiful setting just outside of the city walls, best reached by the hop on hop off train, unless you are going to walk a lot of miles.

Just outside the old city walls of Montepulciano sits this lovely 16th-century Renaissance church. It's amazing to see it from a distance in the sunlight. The interior is very impressive as well.

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.

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.

I think that Antonio di Sangallo the Elder imagined this Temple as a continuity from Greek classical period to Renaissance
