Things to know about Pienza
Pienza is the main town of Val d'Orcia, an area of incomparable natural beauty located in the eastern part of Tuscany.
Known to the world as "The Ideal Renaissance Town", Pienza owes much of its current structure to the interventions promoted by Pope Pius II, who devoted his life to embellish the historic centre: his idea was to transform Pienza (his birthplace) into a spiritual place where inhabitants could live in harmony.
There is no doubt that the Pope has majestically realized his project: the historic centre of Pienza is one of the most beautiful in all of Tuscany, with picturesque streets and the magnificent Duomo that stands on the main square. Furthermore, the town boasts breathtaking views of the surrounded landscape at every corner.
