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 medieval village perched on a hill ... and surrounded by high walls ... inside the country and very small but with streets tidy and well planned ... from the walls you can enjoy a beautiful view over the val d'Orcia to monte amiata and radicofani and the nearest villages

  • Beautiful village of Tuscany that although we saw it raining, is only to stroll. It has churches, a museum but fully closed.
