Avoid the weekends, but do visit this beautiful town.
Oct 2020
We arrived on a Saturday in October in Pienza. After one look at the crowds, we turned around and left. Absolutely impossible to keep the required social distance, and nobody seemed to even try. We returned on a weekday and had the town practically to ourselves. Very worthwhile to stroll around. Very well preserved buildings, and great views across the valley.

16th Century Utopia
Nov 2019
Pienza is a small gem. Built by a pope with the assistance of a renaissance architect, the city replaced an older failed settlement on the same site. Now it has remarkable architecture.

The perfect town
Jul 2019
This is one of the most romantic and beautiful towns in the world. There is a sense of peace, placidity and serenity like in no other place. The views are magnificent and, the quantity of art in such a small place astounding and the food great. What else could you wish from life?

Once nearby a must seen villa!
Jun 2019
A wonderful villa, world-wide heritage of humanity. Many gorgeous attractions in a very small area. The ones I liked the most were the Palazzo Piccolomini and The Duomo. Seat in one of the coffe shops, take one expresso and try to resist to the selection os pastries.

Run down and with lots of construction
Nov 2019
I think the castle is ruined, there’s construction going on. Nothing special or different from other Val d’orcia towns. We passed by and decided not going in, if you are rush for time, skip the place.

Lovely hilltop town in Tuscany
Sep 2019 • Couples
Pienza is like most of the towns in the Tuscan Region, situated on a hilltop above beautiful rolling hills. The towns were built in the Middle Ages, for defensible reasons. The city is small and has many charming shops and cafes.

The most harmonious city in Italy
Apr 2019
This city is truly an exquisite showpiece that suffers over-popularity. Every fountain, piazza and painting is harmonious. Much of its symmetry lies in the cathedral square with a slightly listing Duomo adding to the charm.

Tuscan village of pure beauty
Oct 2018 • Friends
Pienza in Italy is a Tuscan village of pure beauty and once seen, it is not easily forgotten. Pienza and its surroundings provide a rare beauty, made of rolling hills and cypress trees that dot the horizon. Along the road to get to Pienza, the ideal poetic city, you will be so fascinated by the landscape that you might be tempted to continue your car trip: do not hesitate, in the old town there are plenty of treasures, most notably the Palazzo Piccolomini. Pienza is a perfect tourism stop during the discovery of the Val d'Orcia, surrounded with other small and characteristic towns like Montalcino and Bagno Vignoni; about 50 km separates Pienza from Siena.
For Cheese Lovers! ♥️

Delightful: Beautifully Preserved Town
Jul 2019 • Friends
After the hustle and crowds in the cities, it is a pleasure to visit Pienza. The architecture is Renaissance, the town is authentic, the shops are charming, the views are spectacular. Pecorino cheese, local olive oil, and local wine. This is a picture perfect Tuscan town. The one you dreamed about. Unlike Siena, where the crowds and kind distances under the blazing sun were a trial, Pienza is a respite.

Loved it
Jun 2019 • Couples
We didn't enjoy Pienza last time we went because it was too hot. This time it was around 30C and was thoroughly enjoyable. There are many good shops and restaurants and the sensational view of Val D'Orcia is never far away.
