This is a small historical town. We were there for an hour. Could have stayed longer easily. There are some great views. Shopping is easy as the town is about 10 blocks by three. It is known for pecorino cheese and cheese tasting is everywhere....More

The Chianciano Express mini train stops at the fountain, but it is easy to walk in and stroll around. There are narrow streets, scenic views, churches, cafes, small shops and explanatory boards about the writer Luigi Pirandello who stayed and set two short stories here.

Old town of Pienza is really small, just one main street and very crowded. If you need to buy souvenirs do it here. Plenty of places with cool pottery, wine, cheese shops. A tip- people don't really speak English. Bring a dictionary.
