Recently returned from a weeks walking in Tuscany. The village was very special , quiet walled village, with a lovely atmosphere. A great location to visit the area. Able to walk from the village , yet Siena is only an hour away!

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.

Thank Wardieeee

I'm sorry, but I don't know. We had a car so it wasn't anything we looked into. Good luck, and have a nice trip.
