3.50 euros admission fee also gives you the head phone commentary on this pretty little cross shaped temple designed by Antonio da Sangallo. It is situated outside the city walls so there is easy parking. Go about lunch time before any coaches arrive.

Located at the bottom of the hill from the main town square in Montepulciano. It's well worth the short walk down the hill to take the self guided tour. A beautiful setting with great history.....and the acoustics are tremendous!

This little church sits on a quiet terrace below town, in a picturesque setting. We were very pleased to see the art properly illuminated and the interior of the church cleaned up within the last few years.

Many people miss it because it is down the hill from Montepulciano and not in the town itself. Easy parking along the road to the Tempio at least when we were there. Beautiful grounds and the church is beautiful outside and inside. You must stand...More
