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.

The beauty of this plaza lies not only in the architecture, but also includes the people and the overall ambiance. The people are very friendly and they make a point to say Ciao whether they are busy or not.

The Piazza is very nice but what makes it even more beautiful are all the little streets that surrounds the Piazza and all of Pienza, the colors of the flowers on their balconies and friendly people everywhere.
