What a great town to visit. Stopped in while driving around Montalcino area. I picked up a high quality cashmere sweater from a local merchant that manufactures cashmere in the area,

We visited this hilltop village when we visited Motalcino as it was only about 20 minutes away. Suggest you combine the two hilltop villages as both are worth a visit. We found San Quirico d'Orcia a quite unspoilt village with hilltop fort, churches and a formal garden. When we visited we were fortunate enough to see a local Italian wedding.

San Quirico d'Orcia is a lovely hilltop town. There is a good sized free car park about ten minutes from the town. The town has quite a few interesting little shops and lots of places to eat and drink. There is also a museum and a lovely garden full of sculptures.

Perfectly in the middle of everything, but is off the beaten track, so you will not be overrun with too many other tourists. Definitely a must visit!

We went here for “Pranzo“ (lunch) and went to the supermarket Coop. It is a small, but beautiful and historic village, with many nice restaurants, shops and bars. If you just wanna enjoy the important things of life as good food and good wine, I recommend this place!

What a treasure! This quiet walled town was a completely unplanned surprise. We stopped to get a snack and beverages and stayed to explore. It was early afternoon, but We found the streets quiet and walkable. The gardens were stunning. We strolled along the walls, through deserted streets and through the Renaissance garden, and rose garden. Best was we found... More

When traveling from Montalcino to Pienza, have a stop at San Quirico and have a coffee at bar central. A nice small town square with a typical local Tuscan atmosphere.

A nice garden, some lovely churches to visit including seeing the Madonna by della Robbia that used to be in the beautiful Vitaleta chapel outside San Quirico. Nice restaurants, a few shops, Old Roman gates, interesting houses, great views. The Val d'Orcia landscape is breathtaking.

Small town with a cosy town centre. Playground for kids and enough history to keep the buffs busy and everyone fed and refreshed at the local vendors
