This is a beautiful public garden made up of formal box hedges. It’s a haven of tranquillity with really interesting history linked to the wars between Siena and Florence and to the Renaissance (Leonini, who laid the gardens, was a close friend of Michelangelo). In...More

A lovely respite while sightseeing through the town of San Quirico d'Orcia. The manicured hedges transport you to another era and allow you to get lost in the moment. Stone ledges and wooden benches allow for you to sit back or lay down in the...More

A great spot to come to and explore. Very cool in the shade and the views are wonderful. A charming, secret garden.
