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

We spend one morning walking around San Quirico, just lovely. We had a glass of wine in a new winery call In Tralci and was just great to seat in the main street and enjoy a very relaxing time.

We spent a week staying on the edge of this beautiful little town. There's not actually much to see there, a couple of churches, the old town walls and the very pleasant Horti Leonini gardens which were larger than they seemed from the photos. If making a visit to the town, 2 or 3 hours would probably be enough to... More

My husband and I came here for dinner, it was just a short drive from Montalcino, where we were staying. The village has amazing views of Tuscany and is very quaint. We had a lovely dinner here as well.

San Quirico is not far from Pienza or Montepulciano so if you stay aroind one of these places it won't take you a long drive. In any case and particularly true during the nice seasons, you will enjoy the beautiful tuscany countryside when driving through. If you drive there is parking lot near the town historic center which will take... More

This beautiful medieval village is preserved as if it were a time capsule . its narrow streets and ancient buildings brings us back an era of knights and castles, which revives during June for the medieval parties and celebrations and its present in every corner. magic, mystical stories and fantastic battles are part of these towns of Val d'Orcia

This is a lovely small town with a pedestrianised old centre. It is a great place to stay as it has restaurants and cafes, bakers and supermarkets as well as tourist shops. The streets are very pleasing to walk around with some beautiful buildings and churches. An added bonus is that you can park close to the old town for... More
