Description

Pienza is a small Tuscan town situated in the heart of the valley Val d’Orcia. It was given a UNESCO site status in 1996. Pienza is considered to be an “ideal” Renaissance city from the perspective of rational space usage. The one who decided to turn this simple village into a utopian city was Enea Bartolomeo Piccolomini who later became Pope Pius II. The city project was carried out by the Architect Rossellino. It took only 3 years to build the Cathedral, Palazzo Piccolomini, Palazzo Del Comune and the charming central square. In the virtue of being located on the top of the hill, Pienza combines the architectural beauty with a breathtaking view of the valley Val d’Orcia, which gives you a feeling of being inside of a painting. The town is certainly a must for cheese lovers, as Pienza is known for its production of different varieties of cheese. The historic center is full of small shops, where anyone can find Pecorino of their dreams.
