This is the perfect example of a charming little villiage. It is pleasing to the eye and feels authentic. It is also not very crowded which makes it more than unique.

Piazza Pio is in the centre of the Tuscan jewel that is Pienza, and it is just so easy to imagine what it might have been like at the time the city was built.

Visited Pienza for the first time this August and now know why the Piazza Pio II is the must-see sight in town. As the guidebooks say, this is where Renaissance urbanism all started before it became so established around Italy, but seeing it in person...More
