4.7/5 based on 440 reviews on the web
The "touchstone of Renaissance urbanism" and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Historic Centre of the City of Pienza is one of Tuscany's greatest treasures. It is in this town that Tuscan Renaissance town-planning concepts were originally developed, best exemplified in the trapezoidal Piazza Pio II square and its surrounding buildings. This quaint town has a number of noteworthy early-Renaissance buildings, including the residential Palazzo Piccolomini, the Duomo, and the Palazzo Comunale just opposite. Walk along the town's medieval walls for fantastic views of the Tuscan hillsides. A visit to Historic Centre of the City of Pienza represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pienza family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • The village looks certainly right, with its red brick buildings; It also features the names of streets, as "Via dell'Amore", "Kiss" or "Via della fortuna", but in summary does not offer much to see. It is advisable for a visit upon completion of a route, not as main target, since it runs in a short time. Among other things the parking prices are high enough and point out that the road to the village is kinda rough.
