Piazza Pio II is the main square in the old town of Pienza, a Renaissance town in Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. In fact, this square and the buildings, which surround it are from Renaissance period, because this Pope (Pio II) try to do a real renaissance ideal city. From the square, you can see some important buildings like Duomo (Cathedral) or Palazzo Piccolomini or the town hall. Very nice place. (See also Il Duomo di Pienza and Palazzo Piccolomini)

Small but lovely hill top town with around the wall walks you can see Tuscany from high top. The city is small and peaceful, we enjoyed our time there and wanted to go back but did not find time

After he was elected Pope, local boy Enea Piccolomini, decided to turn his home town called Corsignano, into an ideal Renaissance town. He did this by having the Florentine architect, Bernardo Rossellino, design a new urban plan for the town, which was renamed Pienza (meaning the "City of Pius"), as well as a number of associated buildings. The centrepiece of this new urban space was the Piazza Pio II which is surrounded on all four sides by Renaissance buildings largely designed by Rossellino and built in a very short space of time in the late 1450's to the early 1460's. These buildings include the Duomo, the Palazzo PIccolomini, the Palazzo Vescovile and the Palazzo Comunale. There are also some shops that now front the Piazza. Apart from the surrounding architecture not a great deal to see.

Pienza was largely the creation of local boy made good Pope Pius II and this lovely little Piazza is at its heart. The whole village is incredibly touristy but it's certainly worth an hour of your time if you're anywhere near Montepulciano, if only to see what one man's hubris can do. It's interesting from a town-planning perspective and there's, inevitably, a goodly number of tourist-oriented shops if you fancy some retail therapy. Certainly some superb cheese emporiums.

We enjoyed the views, walking to the square, saw where Romeo and Juliet were filmed. Wish we could have spent more time here. Lots of shops and restaurants.
