We did not have any plans of visiting Pienza. But as we drove through the lovely golden fields of Tuscany we came across this lovely little old town. Spent a few hours there walking about, taking in the sights, enjoying some good food and wine. The Piazza was atypical of piazzas in such towns and very pretty. Enjoyed visiting this... More

Not knowing much about Pienza before we arrived the beauty of the piazza blew us away. Very different to other Italian towns we have visited and well worth the trip.

This piazza is lovely, as is Pienza! It is hard to miss, and is definitely worth seeing. Very photogenic.

All of the 'typical' Tuscany towns are gorgeous. What made Pienza my favourite was: i) the views (beyond stunning) ii) the colorful usage of flower arrangements in many houses/shops iii) the fact that it was somewhat less "touristy" than San Gimignano et al (although this is hit or miss).

Pienza is a tiny town which you can take a circle within 30 minutes.But every detail of this beautiful town makes it unforgettable.You can see exquisite decoration or flowers at any place.The yellow-stoned walls make the town colourful.The plaza is peaceful in the morning.

Very pretty city, with quaint streets and beautifully restored houses. Scenic vistas offering fantastic views of the Tuscan landscapes abound around the city. For us, it's one of the prettiest tuscan city in the area.

We had a very enjoyable stroll through the town. As others have mentioned, there is not a lot of elevation change & the cobbles are easy to navigate. Picturesque narrow streets, quaint shows selling herbs & food. Don't expect too much and you will be pleased! We had a great deli experience purchasing salami, cheese, bread, beer & a pastry...
