Romantic!

Travelers to Tuscany should make an effort to visit this precious hamlet, which is south of Siena. The city is known for pecorino cheese and its beautiful architecture.

This was one of my favorite places to visit and wander the streets of Pienza, wonderful restaurants, views of Tuscany and great sunsets. We stayed a week and we could have stayed longer. The only draw back is it is not reachable by the train system -- you need a car, or be on a tour. Yet many hill towns... More

Pienza sits right in the middle of Val D`orcia between San Quirica and Montepulciano. It is the jewel in the crown, its so beautiful, charming, full of characters, and not to mention the breathtaking road before the climb to town. I could sit there forever and watch the valley below and the roads that cut through wheat fields on both... More

Pienza is a beautiful little village, well worth a trip. Walk to the end of the main street and eat at Latte de Luna, you won't regret it!

If you are looking for the perfect little quintessential Tuscany town then this is it. When we visited they were filming a commercial and had "extras" all over the town.

Dot miss the opportunity to stop at Pienza - it is a very charming medieval town, very small with lots of parking spaces, it has it's character and nice restaurants. Also it has history and nice views of Tuscany from town's walls.

If the Romans knew of the therapeutic benefits of the waters at Bagno Vignoni, then what better recommendation could we ask for, to wade in boots and all. The thermal pool at Tthe Posta Marucci Hotel is great, its waters are said to ease respiratory ailments, inflammation, arthritis and sciatica. But for us fortunates, not being blessed with those ailments,... More

If you are driving through Tuscany you will be well served to stop at Pienza. This little town has stunning views of the Val d 'Orcia , quaint shops on the narrow cobbled streets and a lovely Duomo. This is a great place to stroll around (mostly flat) just enjoying the Tuscan sunshine. Many opportunities to purchase some very good... More
