The Best Photography locations around San Quirico d’Orcia, Tuscany

Aug 30, 2022

San Quirico d’Orcia is one of the most magical places on earth to take photography because, just in the village and around the village, you have amazing views. I usually stay at the Capitano hotel collection Here are some of the best shots I got from the village and around.  

Bella Donna

This is the view from the hotel by the pool. You need a long lens to get this shot. This is a great sunrise and sunset photo. I call this the Eiffel Tower of San Quirico d’Orcia.

Agriturismo Baccoleno 

This is another hotel with a great view too. It’s called Agriturismo Baccoleno. Here is the link: This is the perfect location to shoot in the path. There are a lot of weddings happening there. You can do drone photography. When you arrive, there is this little hill, and it is really magical. This is totally a sunrise spot and is really amazing.

Cappella Madonna di Vitaleta

This little church was used a lot. You must have seen it in the movie the Gladiator by Ridley Scott. And it’s a famous location. Apparently, it is great at sunrise. I shot this at sunset. It was the best photo I got. But the whole area is incredible. 

GPS location:

Tuscany Pines 

Those little trees were on my way to the hotel, so I stopped by to take a photo. You can just walk around and get some good shots there. I advise you to do long exposure photography or to go at sunset. 

GPS location:

Monticchiello Cypress trees

This is another great spot, with a serpentine road full of Tuscany pines. It is truly a must. It was incredible to see. I wasn’t very satisfied with this shot, but I am sure you can take amazing photos there!

Ancient Roman Bath  

This is a great place, very ancient, the water was so blue, the whole area got such a great vibe to it. It’s about 20 minutes from the village. Totally recommend it.

All these photos were taken just around San Quirico D'orcia

And the little plus is my favorite restaurant in Italy happens to be there!


I love truffles, and they are very generous with them; they have a truffle menu that is to die for. My favorite is their Filet with fresh spaghetti with truffles!

Have fun in Tuscany!
