Historic Centre of the City of Pienza, Tuscany
(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.

  • Borgo small but very very cute!! simply overflows with many pikkoli jewels inside immaculately maintained clean groomed and like all medieval villages ... It has charm and mystery! at night with all the lights is even more distinctive. In short, to visit at least once in a lifetime ' ' we did me and my better half ... Rosy!!!

  • The village of Pienza, beautiful square dominated by the Cathedral, the Episcopal Palace and the other palaces of the Crown, nice to walk on streets that become viewpoints on such Tuscany, what about a trip to this small town steeped in history becomes more than willingly of course don't forget but it is impossible not to buy the famous cheese.

  • Beautiful small village but very characteristic where the scent of cheese of pienza invite you to enter into any room of the local gastronomy. Really nice and not to be missed
