A Pienza Must See

Walking around the private house and garden of two popes: what a strange and special experience. A must see if you're in Pienza.

Pienza is the perfect place to visit no matter what switches you on. History - Shops - Food - Wine - Pecorino cheese is a must - Art - Street Musicians - Architecture - Museums and as much friendliness as you can handle.

Very historic square with Palazzo Piccolomini and the cathedral right in the center of Pienza. Beautiful place! Do not miss it.

Take a seat under the arches, away from the Sun, preferably with a drink or a panino, and just relax. Peaceful, balanced piazza. Just 3 buildings to admire, but what buildings!

We arrived early (9:20am) at Pienza and the entire centre of the town is a medieval delight. Beautiful doors adorned with baskets of flowers are everywhere, and compared to the more populous places like Siena, this is a place you can sit, relax, and enjoy your favorite coffee.

Because everything was built at the same time the whole feeling of Pienza is one of harmony. we were pleasantly surprised when we returned to the car park to find a string of Ferraris on tour.

Pienza is a lovely small hill town with superb views over the Tuscan landscape. Just past the square is a good museum with as its greatest treasure an early 14th century English cope in what appears to be perfect condition. The fineness & detail in the embroidery is amazing. Pienza has good shops, especially art studios.
