Don't miss Pienza

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

First day out in Tuscany brought us to this charming little hill town. As we look back, it certainly was one of our honeymoon favorites. Plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, shops, restaurants, piazza, and stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Easy walking, friendly residents, beautiful memories. If you are touring Val d' Orca, this must be a stop.

Pienza is a lovely little picturesque town to spend a morning or afternoon. I enjoyed wandering along the narrow little lanes, browsing interesting shops, listening to talented buskers at the squares, the Ristoranti and Caffes and the gorgeous view over the Val d' Orca for taking photos. It is well worth a visit. The weather was beautiful in October but... More

Delightful little town with outstanding architecture and nice shops. The pecorino cheese is not to be missed. Try some of the really old aged varieties.
