Nice and friendly little town, with a quite moderate, but beautiful cathedral. The other buildings like the town hall are also definitely worth a visit. The view from the monastery garden (next to the church of San Francesco) is breathtaking!

Charming little city with fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside. Walk down the Via Della Fortuna for good fortune and down the Via Del'Amore for love! Taste the different kinds of pecorino cheeses - so delicious!

A picture postcard town, very nice views and worth popping to if you're in the area! We parked easily [and for free] - had a nice snack in the square and great views: another church on top of a hill: how did they construct them???

May or June are the months to visits Tuscany. This beautiful part of the world offers so much beauty and Piazza PIO is one of them. Full of History, attractive buildings and superb view. Highly recommended.
