When you are in Pienza, the Piccolomini Palace is a must. Just to see the original bedroom of a 15th century pope including his comfortable seat (where he left the contents of his intestines) is indespensible... Fine views from the Loggia

A 30min tour (only way to see palazzo) with audio guides. Interesting family history including a couple of Popes, great views of Tuscan landscapes from balconies and gardens.

The Palazzo and for that matter the entire village. You'll need about an hour, perhaps an hour and a half to see the town and Palazzo. We just toured the beautiful renaissance gardens and first floor we didn't want to wait for the escorted tour....More

The former palace of the one-time bad boy pope who laid the groundwork for modern Pienza should be the town's top attraction (beyond the drop-dead view). Photographs of the extensive interior are prohibited, but a very good audio guide leads the visitor through both public...More

This world heritage site is impeccably restored. The frescoes are amazingly intact and the map of the world painted in the 1500's is something to see. The gardens are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen....peaceful, imaginative, and restorative.

Interesting audio guide and fabulous gardens. Definitely worth seeing. The views are spectacular and the house itself full of history.
