San Quirico d’Orcia is a special town with restaurants churches and food shops. What is remarkably missing is the plethora of dress, shoe and just plain junk shops aimed at separating women from their money. It’s very nice.

This is a lovely small town not as touristy as some of the other hill towns, but very pleasant to spend a few hours in

When we couldn’t find a place to park in Pienza we drove a few miles to this charming little Tuscan hilltop town. We had a delicious lunch at Trattoria Osenna. Interesting architecture in this unspoiled town. Worth a visit.

A better class of shops and cafés here and plenty to occupy the visitor for an hour. We were very glad we detoured to see it.

Very quiet and clean. The main road and the gardens give you a sense of how it must of been in the middle ages. Only negative point: parking is "free" but limited at max 1 hour... So if you're having lunch or dinner, make sure...More

This quiet, clean little town is easily walkable and friendly. I wouldn’t make a special trip to see it, but would recommend stopping if you are driving through.
