From Pienza take the SP 146 but do not worry in this section the descent is greater than the climb and is an easy path for anyone. This stretch of road is perhaps the most evocative of the entire Val d’Orcia: here, immersed in a breathtaking landscape, you can admire and photograph symbolic places such as the Vitaleta Chapel, wonderful farmhouses and some of the most famous hills in the world. From Pienza take the SP 146, and then take a dirt road on the left following the indications of the brown tourist sign. You will take a dirt road for a short distance until you come to a crossroads. You will notice that the road on the right is closed by a gate: it is the road you were looking for, but to reach your goal you have to take a ride through the hills and after about a km you will have reached your destination and you can admire this iconic chapel among vineyards and cypresses. Go back and always continuing on the SP 146 towards San Quirico stop in this beautiful village full of monuments to visit such as the Horti Leonini, Palazzo Chigi, Palazzo Pretorio or the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, Collegiata dei Santi Quirico e Giulitta.

After your stop in San Quirico d’Orcia you can always return to the SP 146 in the direction of Pienza to be able to conclude your itinerary here with a nice aperitif based on Pecorino di Pienza on the panoramic terrace overlooking the whole valley!
