Historic Centre of the City of Pienza, Tuscany

4.7
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. To plan Pienza vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Pienza is a beautiful city and very nice to meet you, enjoy walking and lost its streets, notice the beautiful palaces and small squares. The panomarama of the Val d'Orcia from Pienza and unmissable.
