Pienza, a town and comune in the province of Siena, in the Val d'Orcia in Tuscany (central Italy), between the towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino, is the "touchstone of Renaissance urbanism."In 1996, UNESCO declared the town a World Heritage Site, and in 2004 the entire valley, the Val d'Orcia, was included on the list of UNESCO's World Cultural Landscapes.HistoryBefore the village was renamed to Pienza its name was Corsignano. You've now added La Taverna del Pecorino to your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Pienza: Civita di Bagnoregio (in Civita di Bagnoregio), Orvieto (Pozzo di San Patrizio & Duomo di Orvieto) and Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona (in Castelnuovo dell'Abate). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Piazza Pio II, view the masterpieces at Artemisia Gallery, steep yourself in history at Palazzo Piccolomini, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral.
