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

The gardens of Leoni are beautifully situated. During our visit, there was a exhibition of mythic creature statues, including Icarus, Charon and Minotaurus. Very impressive in this quiet place.
