Not just another lovely town on top of a hill, with splendid views of Val d'Orcia. Piazza Pius II Piccolomini has remained untouched since it was built in 1469; the streets of the historic centre have also retained their original and unspoiled character. For lover...More

It’s a small town in the wonderful location of Val d’Orcia worth to be seen. The Cathedral and it’s square are very nice and a lot of beautiful palaces are in the surroundings, very nice, too. Probably it could be better when not a lot...More

The tiny historical center of Pienza is an excellent example of the ideas of Renaissance in urbanism. The main square, surrounded by the Cathedral, the Piccolomini Palace, the Bishop Palace and the Public Palace is a masterpiece in its proportions. But the whole historical center...More

After the large scale of Siena and Arezzo, Pienza seemed to us a village rather than a city. Easy to walk around in less than a day, yet not as crowded as other Tuscan towns (at least in early August when we visited). Its UNESCO...More

I have now visited Pienza 3 times and it never disappoints. Pretty cobbled streets, interesting shops and galleries, gorgeous views, cultural treats, friendky locals....what's not to like.

The visitor pays 7 euros for what is described as a guided tour of the palace. But the guide says almost nothing throughout the visit and merely holds up a numbered card at the doorway of each of a dozen rooms and instructs the visitor...More
