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.

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.

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.

Besides an interesting walk around the old village (do not miss their public historical garden and the old church), you might enjoy other cultural events/expositions and their wine route (Strada del Vino Orcia)

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.
