The "touchstone of Renaissance urbanism" and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Historic Centre of the City of Pienza is one of Tuscany's greatest treasures. It is in this town that Tuscan Renaissance town-planning concepts were originally developed, best exemplified in the trapezoidal Piazza Pio II square and its surrounding buildings. This quaint town has a number of noteworthy early-Renaissance buildings, including the residential Palazzo Piccolomini, the Duomo, and the Palazzo Comunale just opposite. Walk along the town's medieval walls for fantastic views of the Tuscan hillsides. To plan Pienza vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Come for the views - in spring it was just glorious to see the Tuscan countryside. Red poppies in the green fields. Cypress trees lining drives to beautiful properties. Just gorgeous.

  • Pienza is a true gem. Small and easy to navigate and for a hill town, it is fairly level, making it super easy to walk. The views are stunning !
