  • It could be amazing. But they rush you through one floor of the place in 25 minutes. No time to look at the paintings or furniture. Better ways to spend €7 in my opinion.
  • Its a small garden but the view from here is fantastic.
  • Awesome palace... bring you back on the 15th century
  • Great view of Valley of Orcia (Val d'Orcia) from Pienza. Small square in a lovely city with heritage.
  • Great tour for the money. All rooms decorated with scenes from Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet
