Tradition small Tuscan town - lovely!

A small but quite delightful town to stroll around, admire the architecture and browse the shops. Plenty of trattorias to sample the local cuisine and wines.

Just arrived from Montalcino and both towns have their own unique charm and originality. Their only similarity is that both towns showcase with a way of life we would all like to live. Simple, honest and the real sense of family and community spirit displayed by their food wine and hospitality. Both towns are 'must visits'

We stopped here after a long day of driving and reached about 7pm. This hilltop town offers fabulous sunset views! There weren't many tourists by the time we arrived as well. We managed to explore a little before dinnertime and had a fabulous dinner at a restaurant before leaving. We regretted coming in so late and will definitely come back... More

Great central location to day trip throughout the Tuscan region. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Wonderful places to dine & wine. Some nights upon our arrival "home" we were greeted with the sound of beautiful classical music filling the air. What Tuscan dreams are made of...

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
